At SmarTravel, we offer clients dozens of vacation destination options all over the United
States and even a few in the Caribbean. Now that it’s June (isn’t this year flying by?), one of
the busiest travel months, we wanted to showcase a few of our very favorite destinations for
fun family vacations. We’ve decided to feature four hot spots from around the U.S. to ensure at
least one location is a quick drive or flight from your family’s home.
1. Kissimmee, FL
Kissimmee is about as family-friendly as it gets! This tight-knit community is just a short
drive from all kinds of Disney fun! Walt Disney World, Sea World Orlando and Universal
Orlando are all just around the corner and so is the ocean! The white, sandy beaches
of the Gulf are incredibly welcoming and make for a very inexpensive day of fun for
families. In Kissimmee, you get a small town feel with nearby, exciting amenities! Who
could ask for a better combination?
2. Palm Springs, CA
If your family is closer to the west coast, SmarTravel has you covered with beautiful
properties in Palm Springs! This city in the desert of southern California offers a rich
sense of history and culture plus ample ways to relax. Filled with parks, pools and a
great nightlife, Palm Springs is family-friendly as well as a great fit for singles or couples.
Any Marilyn Monroe fans out there? Downtown Palm Springs features a 26-foot tall
statue of the late star; that is not something you see every day!
3. Myrtle Beach, SC
Relaxation, beautiful scenery and great local eats- what more can you ask for in
a vacation destination? Myrtle Beach boasts more than 60 miles of beaches and
attractions plus a romantic boardwalk. A popular place for beach-goers, spring breakers
and golfers, Myrtle Beach is a place to truly dig your toes in the sand and relax. Looking
for a little adventure? Try out one of the water parks or consider a deep-sea saltwater
4. Port Clinton, OH
Hoping to stick to the Midwest? Port Clinton is a gem of a town that many people don’t
know about. Situated on the Lake Erie shoreline, Port Clinton will make families feel like
they’ve been whisked away to Florida or California while keeping the Midwestern charm
of Ohio. Boating and fishing are the main attractions in the summer months, but Port
Clinton is popular all year for its wineries and local restaurants.
When choosing where to vacation with your family, it’s important to note that every family is

different. While some families might find the beach to be the most appealing option, yours might
be more focused on a location that can provide lots of fun excursions for the family.
At SmarTravel, we offer vacation destinations to meet the needs of any family, couple or
individual, including resorts in all four of the destinations mentioned above. But we don’t stop
there! We have dozens of options all across the U.S. and even in the Caribbean! For more
