5 East Coast Vacations for the Whole Family

Planning a vacation for the whole family doesn’t have to cause headaches and stress. In fact, there are a lot of great options for family getaways up and down the East coast. Here are five places to take the whole family vacationing.

Washington, D.C.

Washington, D.C.

Filled with history, monuments, and museums, Washington, D.C. is a great place to take children for a truly American experience. Between the White House and the Smithsonian Museum, you are sure to learn a lot during your stay in the nation’s capital. There are also sports teams to cheer on, delicious restaurants, and beautiful parks. In the spring, you can see the cherry blossoms in full bloom along the National Mall too.

North Carolina

If you’re looking for a trip that features bustling cities, incredible stretches of beaches, and mountain scenery, then look no further than North Carolina for your next trip. North Carolina coast rentals on secluded beaches and tiny islands are great options for a quiet and relaxing beach vacation. From the fun of Raleigh to the charm of Asheville, you will find a little bit of everything in this incredible state.

New York

A trip to New York is usually filled with high energy activities, fun nightlife, and incredible sightseeing. Older children may better appreciate the city that never sleeps, and you will be able to take them to Broadway shows, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and One World Plaza with confidence. For younger children, there is Central Park, boat tours to the Statue of Liberty, and matinee shows for them to enjoy with you.

Massachusetts

Massachusetts is a state that features a great deal of historical cities. Visit Boston to see where the American Revolution really got going (Boston Tea Party), and the kids may love seeing a Red Sox game.  Drive to Plymouth to see the site of the first pilgrim settlement. Take a tour of Nantucket Island, a beautiful seaside town off the coast of Cape Cod, an area made famous by the Kennedy family.

Florida

Florida’s eastern coast includes Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, two cities on the beach that always seem to be in the midst of one big party. Together as a family, you can relax on the beach, jet ski, and parasail, among many other surfside activities.  Florida’s coast is also the gateway to many cruises that can take you to the Caribbean or the Bahamas.

Family vacations come in many forms, but any of these spots along the East coast would give you and your family a chance to relax, have fun, and reconnect.
