Coaster Lovers: I recommend only one park. That is Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH. I have never been to another park that has as many great coasters as Cedar Point. Every line is well worth the wait. I have fond memories of watching 4th of July fireworks in the front seat on the Raptor with my brother one year.
History Buffs: Williamsburg, VA is the place to be. Where else can you learn about how our first settlers lived and survived. I am heading down there next month and am looking forward to checking out the history from a toddler's perspective. It should be an exciting time.
Beach Get Aways: For the East coast I'm partial to Ocean Isle Beach, NC. My family has been going there for years at this point. We had a few year hiatus, but we now back in full swing and love the beaches location and surprising non-commercialization of the island. Everyone hears about the Outer Banks which are beautiful, but I'll take Ocean Isle because of it's location to just about everything. An hour from both Wilmington, NC and Mrytle Beach, SC, what more could you ask for?
For the Gulf Coast, hands down is Destin, FL. Who couldn't love the beautiful white sand beaches, crystal clear water and relatively no waves? I spent many of vacation just sitting and reading on this beach and am counting the days until I can get back there.
What are some of your favorite family destinations for the summer? Later this week, I will share my list of in-home family activities, so leave your favorite destination and stop back for my next list.
