Two adults and an 8-year-old, anywhere in the world...trip ideas welcome!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I take turns planning our family vacations, and I'm on deck for the coming year. The possibilities are exciting, but also overwhelming! I thought I'd open it up for suggestions in the hope of finding ideas for destinations I might never have considered otherwise.

The basics:

- Two parents and a son who will be 8 at the time of travel. He's a good traveler and up for adventure (within reason).

- Due to school, we're limited to travel during spring break (usually a week in March), summer break and winter break

- Departing from the Southeast (Atlanta is our closest major airport)

- Using airline miles, so airfare is not a big concern

- Interested in: beautiful scenery, interesting architecture, ocean and beach, kayaking, mountains, hiking, local character, safety, history. However, we don't have to check all these boxes in a single trip!

- Not interested in: extravagant dining and shopping, nightlife, theme parks, staying within a resort for the entire trip

- A budget-friendly destination would be a plus. Our total budget for the trip will be about $3500. Since airfare is not a factor, we can stretch that further than we would otherwise.

What have ya got for me, travel gurus?
