It can be hard to please everyone when you book a family holiday, so here are some ideas for interesting, unique and varied destinations to take your family away to:
When families travel to America, they’ll usually opt to go to Florida, but otherwise, California is the number one place to travel in America due to the rich list of activities (plus if you like Universal Studios, there is one in California anyway!) Whether you are looking to indulge in some culture, go to a vibrant and exciting beach setting, take in the wonders of Hollywood or admire the unique buildings and streets of San Francisco, California is like a little America within America – there truly is something for everyone in the family to enjoy, regardless of age or taste.
Go skiing in the French Alps
Nothing brings the family together quite like the pleasures of a skiing holiday. Whether your family is already accustomed to going on a skiing trip or are new to it, Val d’Isère in France is the best place to start. With beginner and intermediate skiing classes, endless routes, outstanding scenery, a beautiful surrounding village and much more, the list of positives about this place are endless. The après ski/nightlife in the ski resort and village are second to none in Europe really, whether you are looking for a place to take the kids for an evening meal, or a cinema, games rooms, bars and lounges to kick back and have fun, it’s all on offer at this traditional ski resort.

Edinburgh in Scotland is one of the most beautiful major world class cities and it is also hub for culture, entertainment and activities. If it’s culture you are after, the Edinburgh Castle, which overlooks the city is simply stunning; the castle overlooks the Royal Mile, home to many boutique stores offering something different from your usual city streets. Although kids usually love castles, if viewing historical buildings and monuments doesn’t appeal to the kids, you could instead start with the Dungeons, a ghost tour to the underground of Edinburgh, or go to Camera Obscura, which puts a spotlight on optical illusions – and will enlighten visitors of any age.
Barcelona, is much like the European version of the first place we mentioned, California, since it has everything for the whole family including, culture, entertainment and relaxation. But in particular, it’s great for people who love art, as you can see the work of Picasso among other high-profile artists. You don’t often get a city holiday and a beach holiday together, but you do in Barcelona! The man-made beach is a lovely addition to the sunny city. We suggest putting Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia first on your sightseeing list!
