Which National Park with kids (summer 2014)

Jump to last reply

Family of 4, two kids will be 8 years old. Summer of 2014, preferably August, but flexible. I had hoped we'd have two weeks and take a big trip, but it looks like we will have one week.

I would like to start taking the kids to National parks. We like being outdoors - hikes, biking, horses, swimming - mostly low-key and relaxing. Shopping and night life are not a consideration. Flying from Texas, prefer to minimize travel hassles.

Current ideas:

Fly into Denver - spend some time at RMNP and then to one of the ski areas

Olympic Nat. Park - haven't researched at all.

Acadia NP plus maybe a couple days elsewhere.

South Dakota - Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, a cave, etc.

I want to hold off on Yellowstone a couple of years (and when we have more time). I don't think summer is best time for the southwest parks.

We have been to Smoky Mountains and had a great time in a cabin near Gatlinburg (but did not spend much time in Gat.). Have been to San Diego, Disney (CA and FL), Destin.

Any suggestions? Thanks!
