Travel suggestions for summer vacation with teen girls 14 and 17

Jump to last reply

We are a family of four traveling with teen girls 14 and 17. Looking for ideas for a summer vacation. Time frame we have is 7-10 days in mid August. Not interested in going somewhere super hot and humid. We need to narrow it down, ideas we have tossed around are Yellowstone, Colorado,Alaska , Hawaii, and Southern California.
Hawaii seems too expensive right now, we are traveling from New York. Airfare running around $1000 each. Love all the things to do in Hawaii though. Things we like to do: biking(not mountain biking-Mom is not the best!). Kayaking and SUP boarding,rafting(nothing too rough, novices at this. We love outdoors but nothing too adventurous. Short hikes.Beach, Boating, tours, shopping(of course,travelling with two teen girls). Visiting new places.Also, we love concerts,(especially outdoor concerts) and anything music). So with these limitations we are questioning whether Colorado or Yellowstone would work for us? Any thoughts or recommendations? Here is a trip we loved.
We have traveled alot. The vacation we have enjoyed the most was our west coast trip, Seattle to Oregon(west and east side of state) to San Francisco. Kids enjoyed the day in Seattle city,especially the EMP museum. We also did the ducks tour, Pikes market etc. Bike riding and SUP boarding while at Sunriver Resort. We visited a training facility for Idirod dogs at Three Sisters Mountain in Oregon(girls loved it).Dune buggy in National Sand Dunes,and Rogue River Tour in Oregon(two highlights of the trip). Kennedys in Portland(old school turned movie theatre), Redwoods in Calif, toured an organic winery in Anderson Valley, and a Olive Oil Farm in Sonoma. A trampoline place in San Francisco and the best Italian restaurant in San Fran (I wish I could remember the name of it.
Past vacations: Caribbean cruise, Atlantis in Bahamas,Disney, Cape Cod(best bike trails and whale watching), Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Woodloch Pines Resort in Pennsylvania,and Vancouver.
We like to explore new places.
Next year we are going to Paris for our daughters graduation. So Europe is out this year.
Any ideas would be great! Thanks in advance.
