Finding time for both yourselves and the kids can be hard nowadays. What with the latest technologies making us constantly available to everyone in the world, it can be a rare moment when we all sit down to eat dinner together without the television on or someone away with the fairies on their phone.
However holidays are a time for families. A time when the devices are put away and the sun cream is slathered on for a weekend away or for a week or two of personal bonding time. There are countless locations to which you can whisk yourself away and get a break from the rest of the world and you will certainly have your ideas of the perfect holiday! However we’ll be having a look at some of the best family friendly vacation places, so that there is something suitable for everyone, even the little ones!
An obvious choice for children, if your kids happen to be Disney fans, there is nothing easier than hopping onto the EuroStar for a few days at EuroDisney. With a range of hotels to choose from, their own Disney Village complete with shops and restaurants and two parks to choose from, Euro Disney is a slice of Walt Disney Mania without the huge price tag that accompanies going to California or Florida.
With dozens of activities to choose from and a whole world to explore, Legoland is a theme park full of wonder for the kids to enjoy. Legoland also has a number of fun and crafty rides and slides for the adults, with ‘Miniland’ where you can walk among amazing model scenes from around Europe and the USA.
