Here we are in mid-summer.  Have you been able to get away for a summer vacation yet?  If not, let us give you some great ideas on where to go on your next great family vacation!

Punta Cana

If you are looking for a beach vacation, we have just the place for you. Punta Cana offers nonstop flights from Baltimore, white sandy beaches, all-inclusive family resorts that offer many restaurants, entertainment, family activities, kid’s clubs, shimmering pools and more. Some even offer water parks! All of this for about the same cost as a week at the shore or “down the ocean“!

Harry Potter

Any Harry Potter fans in the house? How about a trip to England to visit locations from the Potter movies? Start with a tour of Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden. For over 10 years, the Harry Potter movies were filmed here and the studio is a treasure trove of Harry Potter artifacts that any fan would love to see. In and around London, King’s Cross Station, St. Pancras International, Piccadilly Circus, Reptile House at the London Zoo, Millennium Bridge, Charing Cross Road, Leadenhall Market in the City of London, Australia House on Strand in central London, Lambeth Bridgen and the Westminster Tube Station were all used as filming locations for the movies. Add in places like the Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral and a day trip to Stonehenge and you will create family memories for a lifetime.


How about an amusement park vacation? Many people opt for Disney World in Florida. Maybe consider going to Disneyland in Anaheim, CA. Not nearly as huge (or crowded) as her sister in Florida, the original theme park offers two parks; Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure, both loaded with rides, dining choices, shows, parades and more. Consider adding on a couple of extra days to spend some time on the beautiful beaches of Southern California, and you will have an extraordinary family vacation talked about for years to come.


Another thought is a trip to paradise; the Hawaiian Islands. Beaches, volcanoes, incredible resorts, snorkeling, waterfalls, golf…you name it, Hawaii can offer it! With each of the 5 major islands offering a character all it’s own, Hawaii can be the perfect place for an active vacation with beach relaxing, history, Hawaiian culture, nature experiences, shopping, spa treatments and great dining all mixed into one vacation. Stay at a luxury resort with a beautiful beach, a lazy river, a spa, great golf courses, great restaurants and more, then go explore the island. This will be a summer vacation experience that the family will never forget.
