If you have not already done so, now could the time to make your summer holiday arrangements because before you know it school will be out and all of the best rooms will be sold out. When you are parents of young children, it can make traveling a little more difficult – therefore, more planning and preparation is required to ensure a seamless and enjoyable holiday.
For example, city breaks can be tiresome for little legs and the adult that has to look after them. Make sure to book your holiday somewhere there are plenty of activities and distractions for little ones, meaning that you can also make the most of your well-earned summer vacation.
Dubai is one of the most beautiful and highly sought-after holiday destinations in the world – all it takes is for a quick Google image search to see why. The weather stays hot all year round but can reach temperatures close to 100°F around July and August. Even if you are not traveling with children, we certainly advise going before or after the height of summer.
If you visit Dubai in late May or early June, you should be aware that it is highly likely that the locals will be observing Ramadan, which falls between 15th May and 14th June this year. This is when Muslims partake in fasting during daylight hours; many eateries in Dubai have dedicated areas where you can eat and drink during fasting hours in order to be considerate to those who are observing the fast.
What better place in the world to spend your summer with young children than by heading to Disney World in Orlando, Florida? Mickey, Donald, Goofy and the gang will all be there waiting to welcome the family to the most magical resort in the world.
On top of being every child’s dream holiday, Disney World has plenty of attractions and rides suitable for older members of the family! The party never stops at Disney World and is a once in a lifetime holiday that all parents should take their children on whilst they have the opportunity.
Sunny Costa Brava, a stone’s throw away from Barcelona, in Spain, makes for a beautiful budget family holiday destination. Miles of incredible beaches accompany plenty of family activities and brimming nightlife, meaning that there is a little something for everyone.
Barcelona is less than an hour on the train from Costa Brava, a service that runs regularly up to around 11 pm at night, meaning that you can schedule several trips into the Catalan City during your stay. If your family consists of any sports fans, you simply must attend a soccer game at the world famous Camp Nou where Barcelona play their matches. If there are no games on during your stay, you can still book yourself on a stadium tour where you will be taken behind the scenes, walk down the tunnel and browse the club’s highly-impressive museum.
If you are on the prowl for a family summer vacation that feels a little more exclusive, the stunning Greek Island of Zakynthos could very well be the perfect destination for you. The southern and south-east shorelines are awash with tourists; however, once you look further into the island’s rural destinations you soon become acquainted with what seasoned travelers might call the ‘real’ Zakynthos.
You can travel to this popular Greek island in good faith knowing that you will find plenty of privacy and family-friendly activities in which to keep the little ones occupied during an extended stay. By the time you come to leave, you will wish you never had to come back!
So what are you waiting for? Grab your passport, pack your bags and get that holiday booked before it’s too late!
