Probably the best advice that one gives to families who wish to go on a memorable vacation is to try something new.
Adventure, if you will.
These trips are bound to not only make them memorable for you but also open the minds of your children if not exceed their expectations as well.
That said, here are 3 best family getaways for 2014:
#1: Kiawah Island, South Carolina
The Sanctuary Kiawah Island Golf Resort is only a 45-minute drive from Charleston but has more than just pools, a golf resort, beaches and a spa. In other words, you children can enjoy the comprehensive program set for them as well as activities such as glass-making, tie-dying, nature hikes and fly-fishing lessons and so on and so forth.
#2: Efteling, Netherlands
Being an hour’s drive away from Amsterdam, Efteling is clearly the answer to Disney World. Not only are these gardens filled with musical mushrooms but also with a tree that tells children’s stories too. As for the things that you can do, you can have a few Dutch poffertjes, ride a merry-go-round or even watch a fire-breathing dragon. You can even stay at the Efteling Hotel which has themed suites that are related to Cinderella or the Flying Dutchman.
#3: Waikkiki Beach, Oahu, Hawai
If you want to test your wave-riding skills, then the Waikkiki Beach is the perfect place. While you stay at the Trump Hotel International Hotel Beach Walk, you can learn to surf at Ty Gurney Surf School. It must be mentioned that children will get individual instruction while adults get to use longboards that are easy to handle.
