Most of us think of a vacation as a getaway for young couples or retired people. But we can't forget about the kids when it comes to a quality vacation with the whole family. If you need some ideas for kid friendly vacations, there are plenty of fun things everyone can enjoy.
If Disney World is too costly, do not despair. There's plenty of exciting things the family can do together that your children (and you!) will love to do. Camping is an excellent choice, and is usually very inexpensive. The kids will have a great time enjoying activities like swimming, fishing, and hiking, and you'll still get to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. You can opt to camp far from home or just choose a nearby campground.
Another good choice for kid friendly vacations are amusement parks. You can buy a two-day pass instead of just pay for one day, and this way everyone can take their time and will be able to do and see everything without having to rush. Amusement parks can be a water park, or a traditional theme park with roller coasters and other fun rides.
No matter where you live, a trip to the beach is always a lot of fun. There are several beaches across the United States that have plenty of choices for kid friendly vacations.

There are also resorts on some beaches designed to accomodate the whole family, so it is worth looking into. If you really want to go all out, some cruise lines also offer family friendly cruises with something for everyone.

They key is not only to make sure your children have fun and are entertained, but also that you are comfortable and have a lovely time as well.
