Top Places that Children’s can Enjoy
Children really wants activities, even though they are still young they want to be part of exciting trips. If you are thinking on going for a trip here the guides for the best place that your children can enjoy too.
- Lyme Regis, England
Lyme Regis is perfect bucket and spade holiday territory but it’s also got rainy days covered. What Dinoursaurland Fossil Museum lacks in state-of-the-art interactive displays, it makes up for in the enthusiasm of its paleontologist founder and the ever-growing collection, including many sea-dwelling ichthyosaurs, whose fossilized remains are a famous feature of this stretch of the Jurassic coast.
- Olhão, Portugal
Not such an obvious Algarve base, but stay in bustling Olhão and you have the choice of two unspoilt islands on which to while away your days. The glorious beaches of sandbank islands Armona and Culatra being a short boat ride away only adds to the sense of anticipation and discovery – and the further along the coastlines you wander, the more deserted they become.
- Vermont, USA
Make green-living Burlington your base for exploring Vermont. Scoot, Segway or cycle round Lake Champlain, take a cruise – little ones can look out for Champy, the Loch Ness monster equivalent – or simply relax on one of the lakeside swing seats. The nearby Shelburne Museum could keep families entertained for days, with an impressive collection ranging from a 4000-piece model circus to the steamboat Ticonderoga. Round off your trip on a sweet note at the local Ben & Jerry’s factory.
- Normandy, France
Slowdown in rural Normandy, you can enjoy the picture-perfect forests, orchards and meadows, and filling your picnic basket with delicious local apples, cheese and perhaps a sneaky flask of cider for the grown-ups. One way to work up an appetite is aboard the vélorail, riding a special four-person contraption along a disused railway line from Pont-Erambourg, south of Caen. Kids will relish the novel form of transport, and the fact that they sit back while parents pedal!
- Dalyan, Turkey
A fun boat-taxi ride from riverside Dalyan, İztuzu beach is famous for its nesting loggerhead turtles – tread carefully (between May and October) and deliver a real-life lesson in the challenges of balancing ecology with tourism. On a less serious note, Dalyan is also handy for some pampering or mess-making – whichever way you look at it, a visit to the sulphur mud baths is a must.
- Algonquin Provincial Park, Canada
Let the kids be your guides on one of several trails around the rolling expanse of Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario. Younger children will love looking out for the blue arrows marking the way, not to mention chipmunks and beavers; intrepid teenagers might be more tempted to explore by kayak, reaching parts of the park otherwise inaccessible.
- Kent, England
Create your own Canterbury Tales with a holiday in Kent – with England’s oldest cathedral and a Norman castle, not to mention a UNESCO World Heritage Site; Canterbury is a firm family favorite. And with the history lessons ticked off you can head to Herne Bay for fish ‘n’ chips, or to Diggerland, for construction-machinery-based fun, with a clear conscience.
- Lake Iseo, Italy
Experience the famously warm welcome Italians grant to bambini in the breathtaking surroundings of Lake Iseo, less overwhelmed by visitors than its neighbors Como and Garda. You can explore the shore by road or (on the eastern shore) rail, or hop on and off the regular ferries. Monte Isola, Europe’s largest lake island, is a unique stop – no cars are allowed here so discover its winding roads on two wheels, cooling off with a plunge or paddle when needs be.
- Asturias, Spain
This region of northern Spain may not get the guaranteed sunshine of the med resorts, but a spot of rain grants it lushness – and a name, the Costa Verde – that the south lacks. On a sunny day, beaches like Torimbia can’t be beaten, and, should shelter be required, there are appealing harbor towns like Ribadesella and the astounding prehistoric caves near Puente Viesgo to explore.
- Lake Bohinj, Slovenia
If bracing family walks are your thing, try stretching your legs in northwest Slovenia. Surrounded by the majestic Julian Alps, Lake Bohinj has an otherworldly calm. Walking trails lead you round the 4km lake circumference or on various routes up into the mountains, where your efforts are rewarded with magnificent views. Alternatively, you can opt to canoe across the tranquil water instead.
There you go the top place that you children can enjoy. Let them encounter the nature, for him or her play with beauty of it and wonder what the world can offer to him or her.
