Take the Family › Best Days Out

Family-friendly days out in the USA

America, The Land of Plenty, is a beguiling country that is a great choice for family holidays with plenty of exciting days out to be had. Geographically diverse, with deserts, mountain ranges, forests, huge urban sprawls and empty plains, America has got a little bit of everything.

Relive the days of the Wild West with a trip to a genuine ghost town; Goldfield Ghost Town, Arizona offers up a fun and slightly hammed up experience of what life was like in the bad old days, while Bodie, California offers up nothing but it’s ruined buildings, with no facilities whatsoever, so giving you a genuine idea of how tough life was like out in the middle of nowhere!

For a more modern approach, America has got some great theme parks – from the historical Coney Island, a favourite for New Yorkers to the universally acclaimed Disneyland in Orlando.

America’s national parks are enduringly popular and places of surreal beauty. If you’re properly prepared, a hike in these parks will prove rewarding; Yellowstone, Yosemite and the Grand Canyon to name a small selection, are all worth venturing into for unforgettable experiences.

America’s cities offer loads to do, with museums exploring the country’s rich history, zoos, aquariums, galleries, kid-friendly parks and excursions. New York has to be on everyone’s bucket list with its many iconic landmarks, theatres and museums and Las Vegas for its non-stop glittering entertainment. Head to Alaska for the country’s largest indoor water park, Nashville for a taste of country music, New Orleans for jazz, Boston for whale watching and kid friendly museums (the Boston Children’s Museum is one of the best with plenty of interactive experiences), San Francisco for tram rides and a trip to Alcatraz (book ahead) and Miami for a walk along South Beach.

The list of things to do is endless but wherever you end up, you won’t be stuck for something to do in this endlessly fascinating country.
