The Best Destinations to Visit with Kids this Summer

Summer is just around the corner, which means no more school and more family time. Here are six great destinations to visit this summer:

Alpine Adventure in Park City, Utah

YOTELPAD Park City has mastered the art of making sure families have the perfect place to vacation, located right by the action! Conveniently located in the heart of Canyons Village, families can dive into fun with scenic hikes, bike rides, river rafting, horseback rides and more. And there is no need to worry about housing an entire family as each of the Studio PADs and Bedroom PADs can accommodate up to nine guests making it easy for families to settle in and maximize living space.

Escape to the Florida Keys

On the quaint, secluded island of Duck Key, guests are greeted by bottlenose dolphins and the best seaside dining and water adventures the summer has to offer at Hawks Cay Resort. With Family Guest Rooms featuring upscale amenities, visitors will especially be comfortable. The resort features plenty of family-friendly activities like snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, paddle boarding and sunset cruises making it the ideal Keys destination.

California Dreaming in the Desert

Families can escape to the California desert and enjoy pool time and much more at La Quinta Resort & Club. The legendary resort welcomes extended families to enjoy villas or clustered casitas that each accommodate up to four. The property’s 45-acre desert sanctuary, plus casitas with private walled patios and yards, makes it easy to bring VIPs (very important pets) along for the fun. All accommodations are conveniently located just steps away from the resort’s 41 pools, easy for families to reconnect and cool off.

Family Fun in the Texas Sun

Families will find the perfect balance of adventure and relaxation at La Cantera Resort & Spa. This Hill Country oasis is ideal for families with five pools, a kid’s club, water slides, arcade and nightly sunset fireside s’mores. The resort’s multi-room Villas are a draw for multigenerational groups and with added perks like complimentary golf carts, parents can take their little ones to explore the broader property, spread over 500 acres. From tennis and pickleball to Zoomagination events where kids can meet sloths, snakes and other creatures, La Cantera Resort & Spa is worth considering for a summer retreat.
