Family City Breaks in North America

Most family holidays in the United States involve more than one destination, but you’re more likely than not to spend at least some time in a city – when you’re flying in and out, for instance; to do some urban sightseeing; or when starting and ending organised trips.

We’ve worked through the mountain of family accommodation options to bring you the top child-friendly properties in key cities throughout the USA and Canada. Whatever budget you are on and whatever the ages of your kids, we have something to suit, from luxury hotels with family amenities ranging from swimming pools to kids’ clubs, to clean and comfortable low-cost choices providing a base for a night or two. Some are central, for those who like to be in the heart of the action, while others are in quieter areas with good transport options.

Whether you’re headed for New York, San Francisco, Washington DC, Toronto, Vancouver or other exciting North American cities, let our recommendations make your stay memorable for all the right reasons.
