So many of our clients here at Embrace the Journey Travel are families looking for fun and affordable family vacations. We polled our agents to find out what they think are the best kid-friendly getaways for families.


From Disney to Norwegian to Royal Caribbean – the cruise lines have it all. There is space and time to spend together as a family and there are kids’ clubs and programs so the kids can have some independence from their grown-ups or each other! A cruise has everything in one place including live shows, pools & beaches, movies, dinner, and more. Depending on the destination, you can really expand your experiences on a family-friendly cruise.

Best Kid Friendly Getaways

Beaches All Inclusive Resorts

This recommendation came with overwhelming excitement. The options and amenities you’ll find at Beaches All Inclusive Resorts cannot be beaten for your family vacations. By having access to the beach, water, and all the fun activities – plus all-inclusive food and drinks – you’ll be glad you chose to get away together!

Best Kid Friendly Getaways


Whether it’s Disney World or Disneyland or a Disney Cruise – this is made for kids. Even if you’re not a real “Disney Adult” there is something for everyone. With the variety of characters, you can encounter at a Disney park; you could see Cinderella around one corner and Woody from Toy Story around another. You can spend as little or as long as you’d like at the Disney parks and resorts, but your kids will not want to leave at the end!

Best Kid Friendly Getaways

Universal Studios

Sometimes Universal gets forgotten, but the incredible activities this amusement park offers is really unbeatable. You can check out some of our other blog posts about what we love so much at Universal, but think Harry Potter, holiday celebrations, and so much more!

Best Kid Friendly Getaways

New Orleans, Louisiana

This one was a little wild card in our survey, but it is a fantastic place to visit with kids. Not only is the culture and food incredible and unique, but there is also really a lot to explore. The recently built children’s museum is incredible, and it’s located in City Park where you can find Storyland, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, the New Orleans Museum of Art, snoballs, and festivals! Of course – there is always time for beignets at Cafe du Monde and a visit to the Audubon Zoo!
