Some of the Best Vacation Spots in the South Eastern USA
It's hard to beat Washington, D.C. for a young family vacation. Filled with interesting museums, a zoo, a huge mall and plenty of history - the only problem will be having enough time to see everything. The Smithsonian Institute includes museums filled with dinosaurs, planes and planets.
The National Zoo houses giant pandas, gorillas, a zoo choo-choo and even a seasonal tide pool. The small mammal house hosts programs that introduce guests to armadillos, mole-rats and other small mammals. All of the Smithsonian Museums, (17 of them) and the National Zoo are open 364-days a year. And there is no admission charge to any of them- a great money saver for families [images: Smithsonian Institution Museums / Washington Plaza Hotel]
Combine a beach vacation with a trip to a theme park when your family visits Orlando, Florida. Sea World, Universal Studios, Universal Island of Adventure and, of course, The Magic Kingdom will give families plenty of opportunities to ride roller coasters, watch thrilling shows, and splash in water parks. Just an hour away, Cocoa Beach and Daytona Beach have expanses of powdery sand and welcoming Atlantic waves. Young families can swim, paddle board, fish or build sand castles on the sunny Florida coast [image: Wonder Vacation Homes]
Texas Hill Country
Young urban families will love getting away to the Texas Hill Country for a vacation on a dude ranch. Choose a working dude ranch where real cowboys herd Texas Longhorns and ride in rodeos. You can participate in the daily workings, enjoy home-cooked meals and give your children a glimpse of the Old West lifestyle. Other dude ranches offer guests horseback riding, overnight camping, fireside stories and swimming pools or creeks to cool off after a dusty trail ride [image:TexasHillCountry.com]
Missouri lures guests young and old to embrace life with places like Branson, where wax museums, Dolly Parton's Stampede, and riverboat rides will keep young families entertained. Visit the Silver Dollar City for over 40 rides, world-class festivals and daily shows that make this place the #1 attraction. The newest ride, Outlaw Gun, is sure to please. There are also plenty of craftsmen demonstrating things like blacksmithing, glass-blowing, woodcarving and more.
The Ozark Mountains are located nearby. Guests can hike trails, ride motorbikes or even kayak along 350 miles of streams. Ride the Arkansas and Missouri Train for a 134-mile narrated tour of the Ozarks or zip-line over the Ozarks for a thrilling aerial view. [image: Military Family Blog/ Arkansas Missouri Railroad]
New Jersey has Ellis Island, The Statue of Liberty and Liberty State Park - all great tributes to our country - but the real draw is the Jersey Shore. Beaches like the Wildwoods, Ocean Grove, Point Pleasant Beach and others have miles of sand and ocean to enjoy. However, guests also love the boardwalks and piers with more 7 amusement rides than Disneyland. Plenty of shopping, water parks, food vendors and events make this a great place for families to spend a weekend or a week. [image: Visit NJ]
