7 Best Summer Family Vacations that Offer Something for Everyone

by Deborah Song


San Sebastian, Spain. The Michelin-star studded town best known for highly lauded cuisine and pintos bars is also Europe’s best-kept secret for families. San Sebastian entertains families in the best way, with nature hikes, stunning beaches, amazing scenery, charming architecture, and of course, unsurpassed quality in food. Even the funicular and other fun modes of transportation speak to the imagination of kids. The charming quaint town is also conducive for families because the city itself is small. You can explore the bulk of the city entirely on foot. The cherry on top? San Sebastian boasts more gelato stores per child than there are Michelin restaurants per capita.


London, England. If you want an activity-filled itinerary for your family this summer, look no farther than London. From the myriad museums to the extravagant Princess Diana park to theatrical shows to afternoon tea at Kensington Palace to one of the largest toy offerings inside Harrod’s market, London offers no shortage of ways to be entertained, so much of which is free for kids. Not only are many activities free, but kids also eat free at many of London’s restaurants. Plus, traversing from one activity to the next is easily facilitated, thanks to London’s readily available underground train system dubbed the Tube. And not least of all, there’s the convenience of speaking the same language.

Costa Rica. Costa Rica is home to about 5 percent of the world’s biodiversity so it’s a great place for your family to connect with nature. Rainforest expedition packages can help families explore the rainforest, creeks, national parks and beaches where you can spot caimans, monkeys, and green turtles. Or for more adventure, try the Arenal Volcano area.

Banff, Canada. Situated on Alberta’s Rockies, Banff is a breathtaking beauty that remains virtually unknown to the average U.S. family. Great for wildlife sightings, horse drawn carriage rides, natural hot springs, and hikes, Banff is a destination gem for families looking for a little adventure. Because of the city’s nature, it’s probably best to go with kids of age who have more physical stamina.
