Planning a family vacation can be a daunting task, especially with endless options, limited budgets, and the pressure to make lasting memories. Scheduling a trip around everyone’s school schedules can make it seem nearly impossible. With a few smart strategies and some under-the-radar destinations in your arsenal, you’ll be able to satisfy everyone in your family.

There are plenty of family vacation options in the United States, from natural wonders like the Grand Canyon to amazing theme parks like Orlando’s Walt Disney World or Anaheim’s Disneyland. Whether you’re looking for beaches, mountains, cultural experiences, or historical relevance, the U.S. can deliver. There’s so much packed into each destination that you can often kill two or three birds with one stone.

There are plenty of amusement parks across the U.S.: Busch Gardens and Six Flags (both with several locations across the country), Knott's Berry Farm in California, Hershey Park in Pennsylvania, King's Island in Ohio, Adventuredome in Nevada, and Kentucky Kingdom, to name a few. Family-friendly beaches abound, including San Diego, Myrtle Beach, and North Carolina’s Outer Banks. For inspiring natural wonders, try Yellowstone, Yosemite, or the Great Smoky Mountains.

Cities can be a great way to expose children to art museums, sporting events, unique cuisines, and world-class zoos. Topping our list are Washington, D.C., San Diego, and San Francisco.
