A New Kind of Vacation 7 Travel Destinations for Teens and Parents

Royal Caribbean: Symphony of the Seas

As kids get older, making time for family vacations becomes more and more important. Once the kids move out of the house, the demands of adulthood make scheduling a time when everyone can get away fromwork nearly impossible. While parents recognize the importance of continuing to make memories as a family, older kids can be a little harder to convince. Unimpressed teens scoff at the idea of visiting fairy-tale theme parks, and exhausted college students question why they should spend a week in the woods when they could be catching up on some much needed sleep. When you need to take your vacation planning up a notch, rest assured that you won’t have to break the bank to do it. Here are some exciting family vacation destinations that delight kids of all ages. Wisconsin Dells is the water park capital of the world, and that’s not just a clever slogan from the tourism board: There are over 10 different indoor and outdoor water parks in this city alone. Enjoy lazy rivers, heated pools, wild rides, and miles of slides. Some water parks even offer dry attractions, like the world’s longest underground roller coaster, the Hades 360, at Mt. Olympus Water and Theme Park. Described as“Las Vegas for kids,”Wisconsin Dells is one of the best places to beat the summer heat. Park City is a top-rated ski resort and a fantastic vacation destination, even without the snow. This time of year, the chairlift will take you to the top for some wild mountain biking or nature hiking. Thrill seekers will take delight in zip lining through the treetops or gliding through the sky in a hot air balloon. This is the great outdoors at its very best.
