Great Summer Family Vacations in the West

Many American families think that summer vacations require trips to amusements parks packed full of people where the main activity is waiting in line to enjoy a short thrill ride. While this vacation experience offers joy for some, it's certainly not the only way to spend a summer vacation.

For more freedom, fresh air and natural beauty, consider planning a summer family vacation in the West. These are the best destinations to consider for your trip:

Kanab, Utah

Kanab is one of the most family-friendly destinations in the West, largely due to the numerous attractions and the nearby National Parks. While in Kanab, make it a point to book a tour with Forever Adventure Tours. These guided tours allow you to experience all that Kanab has to offer in a way that is safe, fun and informative. Complete your stay in Kanab with a stay at the historic Parry Lodge, where many Western film stars stayed while they shot on location in the city.

Las Vegas, Nevada

Las Vegas doesn't always come to mind as a destination designed for families, but there's actually a ton of attractions for people of all ages. For example, families with young children can check out the aquarium at Mandalay Bay, and those with kids who love thrill rides will love the rollercoaster at New York, New York. Not far from Las Vegas is the Hoover Dam, which is a must-see for any family visiting Las Vegas. While you are on your way to the Hoover Dam, make a pit stop at the Colorado River and enjoy a river rafting tour.

Bryce Canyon National Park
