Family fun vacations are often thought of to mean going to amusement parks or theme parks, such as Six Flags or Disneyland. Although these are great destinations for families with children and teens, adults can enjoy them too.
Many theme parks have areas specifically designed to appeal to different age groups. A lot of these parks also cater to the adults and those who are not as physically fit as the kids.
A popular theme park that incorporates a little something for everyone is Cedar Point, which is a huge roller coaster park in Sandusky, Ohio, USA. For so many young people who are crazy for coasters, this is their fantasy vacation destination. However, even if you don’t enjoy riding roller coasters, or are physically unable to ride, this park is still a lot of fun.
Since families come in all shapes and sizes, a good theme park will offer something for everyone. Enjoy the pre-school fairy tale themed areas, the dare-devil high voltage coasters, or take in a stage show in the air-conditioned theater. Grandparents will have fun watching the older kids ride the extreme rides. Also, for those seniors who are willing and able, they can enjoy the rides with the grandkids.
Many amusement parks and theme parks are often associated with some lower cost places to stay onsite or nearby. Consider staying at a K-O-A campground, or renting a camper; many parks offer low cost areas and hookups for you to stay. This is a very family friendly option because of the proximity to the action. Older members of the family can take a break and go back to the room or camper for a rest during the day. Or, if a little one needs a nap, it is easier to be closer to your home-away-from-home. Split up into groups and let the die-hard adventurers in your group stay at the park while the others take a rest for a few hours. Re-group at a meeting place for dinner and evening fun.
Being able to break up the day can refresh some family members. When they return to meet up with the rest of the family, they will be renewed and everyone will have a better time. So, go ahead and enjoy those family fun vacations together!
