Bucket List Destinations for Families

It’s often difficult to know where to start when planning a family holiday. If you wish to avoid stress, start by asking yourself what your priorities are. There’s a lot to think about; from safety to convenience and of course expense; as well as finding somewhere with plenty of family friendly activities. After you’ve thought this through, you can choose where to take yourselves – the fun part! Will you travel abroad or stay closer to home? Do you opt for an all inclusive hotel or hire a self catering villa? Find flights or pack up the camping gear? Exotic adventure or countryside staycation? It’s all very exciting. 

When you’re about to spend a substantial amount of money on a holiday you really do want it to be the trip of a lifetime.

Here are 4 bucket list holidays for families:


Travel to stunning southern Italy for a wonderful, child friendly beach holiday. Your little ones will spend hours clambering around rocks, building sandcastles and playing with pebbles, giving you some time to relax, unwind and soak up the scenery. Take a day trip to Rome and explore some of Italy’s most famous historical sites. Italy is renowned for its exquisite cuisine so don’t worry about your children not being fed! You’ll feast upon fresh, delicious food from morning till night.

South Africa

If you’re looking for culture, nature and outdoor fun, take your family on safari in South Africa! Such a wonderfully diverse travel destination and something different from your typical beach holiday. You’ll be able to see elephants, giraffes and rhinos in the wild as well as pet baby lions and leopards! With magnificent views, canyons, rock formations and waterfalls, South Africa is a truly breathtaking part of the world and you and your children will never want to leave.


If you would rather have a winter vacation a trip to Lapland would be perfect for your family. Enjoy traditional food, see the northern lights and of course make a trip to Santa Claus village to try a husky tour or a ride on a reindeer led sledge! There are plenty of winter sports for adults to enjoy, too, such as skiing or ice fishing. You won’t be disappointed with the winter wonderland that is Lapland!

Florida, USA

Looking for the perfect family holiday? Look no further than the sunshine state! There are many reasons to visit Florida, from the warm weather to the fantastic American food and the great culture. But really, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Known across the planet as the happiest place in the world, Walt Disney World, Orlando is a wildly popular destination for families all over the world! Disney world is somewhere everyone must visit at least once in their lifetime, and It’s about more than just the rides, it’s the fulfillment of childhood dreams! From the characters coming to life, to the familiar music we all know and love, to the parades, shows and fireworks; Disney world is an experience

Buying disney world tickets has never been easier. If you decide to go in the spring or summer you’ll be able to enjoy Disney’s epic water parks. Blizzard beach and Typhoon Lagoon are absolute musts on your summer vacation schedule – you can’t come to Florida without floating down a lazy river!

Florida is still worth visiting in the winter months; Disney world displays incredible holiday decorations and parades for both Christmas and Halloween that will undoubtedly get you into the holiday spirit. Florida is a wonderful place to celebrate the holidays and will provide you with memories for a lifetime. 

You may be wondering when you’ll be able to have some time for yourself away from the parks. There are golf courses galore as well as shopping malls, spa’s, food and wine festivals and of course the stunning sandy beaches.

A holiday in one of these destinations will give you the chance to spend quality time together as a family and provide you with some really magical memories. Wherever you choose to go, we wish you the holiday of a lifetime!
