Vacations are all about getting away from the mundane things of daily living. Yet if you think about it, a vacation can be more than that, especially if you have kids. Why not consider your summer vacation to be an educational activity as well? If you are into nature and the outdoors and would like to share this passion with your children, national parks are a good idea for a summer getaway. Visiting and even staying in a national park will teach your children appreciation for nature and give them a chance to roam around free. In the United States, families have a wide array of choices for national parks. Though in other countries there may be more limited choices, a visit or two to a national park can always be factored in during your summer vacation.
Russia is another top getaway for this summer. Though this country is well known for its harsh winter, summertime in Russia totally transforms the whole place. More than the sights, spending time in Russia can open the eyes of the whole family to a different perspective, a different culture. Treat the family to views of the Kremlin and the Red Square and throw in bits and pieces of history in there as well.
Last, but not the least, try Wyndham Hotels in Jamaica. The country itself is rife with resorts that offer deals for families but the Wyndham Hotels is famous for its Spongebob Summer Splash Parties. If your children love Spongebob and the water, then this place is the perfect getaway.
