This Lake Michigan resort community is one of the closest access points to what Michiganders call “Up North” – that special region where traffic falls away, trees fill in, and you truly get away from it all. The community of 8,500 provides the perfect combination of northern Michigan natural beauty with the quaint charm of a small town, with specialty shops and family-owned restaurants dotting the pedestrian-friendly downtown main street. It’s also strategically located with easy freeway driving access from major Midwest cities, just four hours from Detroit or Chicago by car (or take a direct one-hour flight from Chicago to the next suburb north of Ludington).

Disneyland and Walt Disney World are incredible destinations for families that are conscious of safety. They are taking every precaution to adapt the magic to protect families during this time of COVID-19. There is no better place to make memories that will last a lifetime.
San Juan – Isla Verde
This product was recommended by Dan Hickman from Southeast Spanish, Inc.
I will be glad to provide more info, but as a Spanish translator, we travel a lot. I have four kids and they love going to Puerto Rico (San Juan – Isla Verde) better than any other place. There is so much to do for kids, that is, aside from typical beach activities. When we travel to beaches here in FL, VA, NC and other places, it is the same stuff everywhere – in PR, my kids won’t stop talking about it for months. They love El Yunque National Forest, Old San Juan, Beaches – obviously, all of the Historic Forts/Sites, and really enjoy the island culture, language, and food. PR with kids is always great!
Mile High City, Denver, Colorado
This product was recommended by Andrew Nelson from Pump Advisor
The Mile High City has tons of experiences for the 48-inches-and-under crowd. Denver’s top attraction is The Denver Zoo. It’s more than 100 years old! At the Children’s Museum of Denver, younger kids can experiment in a test kitchen, cool off in an outdoor splash zone and dance in a room of bubbles. Older kids will appreciate the exhibits and the Phipps IMAX 3D Theater at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. When they get tired, ride in the free open-air Denver Trolley. Best for ages: 8-16.

Miami Beach has the best tropical beaches in the continental United States. As you drive to Miami Beach from Miami, you hit your first two must-see attractions. Indoors, the Children’s Museum shares an island with Jungle Island.

Portugal is a great destination for families because you get the best of both worlds – city AND beach life. While some places are hilly so a stroller can be a bit of of an issue, everything else is perfect for kids. There are lots of parks and space for them to run and the food is so delicious that even the pickiest eaters will find something they love.
Riviera Maya, Mexico
This product was recommended by Natalie Lloyd from Blissmersion
The coast of Mexico that is called Riviera Maya, which includes the cities of Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum, is an awesome destination for families. Riviera Maya has many beautiful beaches and countless resorts that welcome kids. Many resorts also offer a kids club, with several activities daily geared towards kids. There are also swimming pools, baby wading pools, and some resorts even have water parks. If you’re looking for an adventure, you’ll find that, too! Riviera Maya has something for every family to enjoy.

For those seeking profound natural beauty, a vibrant cultural scene and a balance of adventure and serenity, the small city of Sedona, Arizona may offer the ideal destination. Located two hours north of Phoenix at an elevation of 4,500 feet, Sedona enjoys warm, sunny days and refreshing nights during the summer, as well as fewer crowds than may be found at other times of the year. From thrilling jeep tours that explore the rugged landscape to uniquely Southwestern boutique inns, several small, local businesses have joined forces to welcome families (including pets!) to Sedona this summer and highlight the area’s multitude of activities for visitors of all ages.
