5 Family Vacation Destinations That Both Adults And Kids Will Love


If you’re planning a vacation for the entire family, it can be hard to find a place to visit that both adults and children will enjoy. Family vacations are all about compromise, but you don’t want to go all-out in finding a destination your kids are going to love if you and your partner are going to be bored senseless. On the other hand, it’s no good choosing somewhere that adults will enjoy if there’s nothing to keep the kids occupied. Here are five family vacation spots which are sure to please every member of your party from the oldest to youngest.

San Diego
Head to south California for a sunny family vacation spot that both kids and adults are going to love. The beaches here are great for adult relaxation while the kids dig in the sand, but there are lots of other attractions which are family friendly. Head to the famous zoo or Legoland to keep the kids entertained for a full day, or head to Sunset Cliffs Natural Park for a day out closer to nature. There are lots of family friendly resorts to stay in here including luxury hotels which have kids clubs to keep your little ones entertained while also having spas and adult entertainment for you and your partner.

Yellowstone National Park
Do you want to get back to nature with your little ones and enjoy the very best that the country has to offer? Yellowstone National Park is the perfect opportunity to enjoy some quality family time in the great outdoors. Exploring Yellowstone on foot is a wonderful way to discover the beauty of the park, but the kids are sure to love a llama trek as an alternative, or if your children are more adventurous, why not try rafting on the Yellowstone River. There is a Junior Ranger Program for kids aged 5 to 12 and there’s even the opportunity to enjoy a cowboy cookout with a ride in on horseback or in  wagon.

Kauai
Do you want to enjoy a vacation in the sun? Then head to Kauai, Hawaii. This may be a small island but it’s perfect for families. There are beautiful lifeguarded beaches that are safe for little ones to enjoy, fabulous jungle ziplines, sailboats to charter on the Napali coastline where you can spot dolphins in the wild, and the Waimea Canyon which is truly impressive. Kauai is also a great place to introduce your kids to the joys of snorkelling. You can click here for more details about which equipment you’re going to need to get started with this fun water hobby. Of course there’s also the opportunity to enjoy a traditional luau with a whole evening of entertainment and delicious food.

Crested Butte
If you’re traveling in the winter with the kids, you’ll love family friendly skiing at Crested Butte but even if you’re traveling outside of the skiing season there is still a lot to do here when the snow has melted. Hiking with the family is a dream here but if you’re not feeling energetic take a Jeep ride or go rafting. There’s even a Summer Adventure Park here with lots of family friendly activities like prospecting, rock climbing and bungee trampolining – fun for old and young alike!

Washington DC
Would you prefer to go for a city break with the kids in tow? Head to Washington DC for a really exciting vacation that has something for everyone. Fairly low key compared to cities like the Big Apple, Washington is quite walkable and simple to navigate. Even better, most attractions come free of charge so you can save a fortune! Head to the National Mall where you can visit all kinds of exciting museums. See spaceships at the National Air and Space Museum, see dinosaurs at the National Museum of Natural History and find out more about our own history and heritage at the National Museum of American History. There are plenty of great hotels here with family friendly rooms and excellent facilities for everyone to enjoy.

Head to any of these five amazing spots for your next family vacation and have the time of your lives!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
