FlipKey by TripAdvisor: In early 2014 we launched our 50 States Series on the FlipKey blog. Throughout the months we’ve touched on a number of subjects – awarding businesses, museums, activities and more with a spot on our lists. We spent time highlighting their attributes, accomplishments, and why they deserve to be a stop on your next vacation.
We’re starting back at our roots with this post – as we name another 50 family attractions from around the USA to this prestigious list. Here’s what we said about the award-winners and award process last year:
When raising children, it can be difficult to find an ideal vacation destination that appeals to all family members. Will it be safe? Will it be relaxing? Will my six-year-old meet the height requirements or will my three-year-old be scared? Will my twelve-year-old actually look up from her phone for five minutes? All are valid questions when planning out your next trip.
You want a vacation that will be memorable, fun, will provide hours of entertainment and gigabytes of photographs. We’ve searched through every state in the U.S. to find the 50 top family attractions worth traveling for. Museums, zoos, parks, roadside attractions, sightseeing spots, and many, many more were considered for the list. Some of these entires you’ve heard of before, and some are diamonds in the rough.
So check out this year’s list and start planning a trip the whole family will never forget.
