Interesting and fun vacation for family with elementary school kids?

Jump to last reply

Our family of four, with girls ages 6 and 8, may venture from DC area to the islands for our girls' first trip out of the country, possibly over their Thanksgiving break.

We would like an interesting place to stay - this probably means an all-inclusive with some entertainment or babysitting options for kids - with decent food so I guess not Beaches? - on a reasonably safe island because I do like to go off-resort and explore, and I think the kids should have an opportunity to see life outside mainland USA.

My father's new wife keeps suggesting Atlantis; I think I have an idea of what that is like although all comments welcome.

What about Turks and Caicos - any opinions on family options there? Is there anything reasonably priced and nice on St. John's or is it just too astronomical?

Could you please compare those to Bermuda and perhaps the Fairmont Southampton or - other? Other island suggestions? (Yes, I have read the other posts extensively but did not seem a lot of discussion for a short-attention-span children this age.) In terms of activities for youngsters, expense, proximity to town/things to do?

We are not into parasailing or snorkeling; our kids are too small. But we don't always want to lie on a beach all day (my husband gets antsy) so other family activities are good.

Thank you!

Julia
