Need a vacation idea for family of 4. Have a 5 1/2 year old and 8 year old

Jump to last reply

Having trouble deciding where to go with our 8 year old son and 5 1/2 year old daughter.
I usually like to stay in one place with a beach/pool etc and then take day trips from there.

In the past we've been to Williamsburg/Busch Gardens/DC, California, Cape Cod, Rehobeth Beach, Orlando, Fort Myers,

We will be traveling from NY (either fly or drive). Yellowstone would work when they are a bit older. We've been talking about Hilton Head (but concerned about weather in late August), Montreal, Maine, Niagara Falls, Lake George

We are adventurous but also need some down time....

Thanks for any advice
