Yellowstone National Park

Have you started to plan your summer vacation? If you’re just now thinking about what to do and where to go, look out for the April issue of FamilyFun where you’ll find the 60 Best Family Vacation Spots as rated by their readers, including the Statue of Liberty (due to re-open July 4), St. Augustine (FL) and Niagara Falls.

FamilyFun also released their list of the top-ten favorite family destinations. Take a look:

Yellowstone National Park (WY, MT, ID)

Acadia National Park (ME)

Carlsbad Caverns National Park (NM)

Grand Canyon National Park (AZ)

Mount Rushmore National Memorial (SD)

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (MI)

Yosemite National Park (CA)

Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park (FL)

Glacier National Park (MT)

Pearl Harbor Visitor Center/USS Arizona Memorial (HI)

I love that of the top-ten favorites, eight of them are national parks, since as you know, one of my favorite national park activities is the Junior Ranger program. Also, don’t forget about the Passport to Your National Parks program, another great program to check out when exploring our nation’s park systems.

  1. We are huge fans of the Junior Ranger programs also – such a wonderful opportunity to connect the kids to nature & history at the parks! And our family vacation this year will be at Mount Rushmore/Badlands in SD (checking another one off of our list 🙂
