Family Travel Bucket List – Where to Go Before the Kids Get Too Old for Family Travel

Let’s face it, in every family, there comes a time when family travel is just no longer as cool as it once was. The kids began asking to stay home or travel with other friends or they want to spend the entire vacation texting all the friends they left back home.

As a lifelong traveler and adventure enthusiast, this is something that worries. So I created this list of things that I would love for my family to see before we kick the proverbial “family travel” bucket. Before the kids are too old and too cool to travel with us.

Some of these are places like cities or states or countries. Some are hotels or resorts. Others are just ideas like a cruise or obstacle course, etc.

Many I have been to before and want to share with my children. Others I have heard about and added to the list.

1. Disney World

2. Disney Cruise

3. Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay

4. Statue of Liberty and NYC

    […] The Four Seasons, in my opinion, has really stepped up what they do for children. I would absolutely love the chance to share this place with my kids. This place where there father and I first began our married life. I think that my kids would love it for so many reasons. The Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay is definitely on my Family Travel Bucket List. […]
