At MiniTime, we highly recommend that every family have its own vacation bucket list. What is on your family's bucket list is really up to you. With so many iconic kid-friendly destinations and attractions to choose from, it really comes down to your own family's interests.
Do you love the Great Outdoors? Then your bucket list surely contains many of our great national parks such as Yellowstone, Acadia, Sequoia, Hawaii Volcanoes, Zion and the Grand Canyon. It is likely you also want your kids to experience our great natural wonders, such as Niagara Falls.
Get in Touch with Your Past
For history buffs, a vacation bucket list wouldn't be complete without Philadelphia's Independence Hall, Mount Rushmore, Taos Pueblo and the National Mall in Washington, DC. Many families would also include a visit to New Orleans and its French Quarter, the city's oldest neighborhood, which offers both splendid period architecture and Creole culture.
Let's not forget our architectural wonders. A trip to the top of Willis Tower, formerly the Sears Tower, belongs on every family's bucket list. As the second tallest building in the country, it is one of the most important tourist spots in Chicago. If you are visiting Seattle, you can't miss the Space Needle, while no trip to San Francisco is complete without seeing the Golden Gate Bridge.
The Happiest Place on Earth
Finally, for many families, a trip to Disney World is a beloved childhood rite of passage, whether you visit once or ten times before your children grow up and move out of the nest.
On MiniTime, you can plan a bucket list vacation by reading reviews by real parents about kid-friendly lodging and attractions in iconic destinations around the country. The recommendations offered on MiniTime are customized to fit your profile, taking into consideration the ages of your kids, to save you time.
