Want an amazing family vacation? Plan a trip to one of these 40 must-see destinations. Get there while your little ones are still little (or at least before they're out of the nest altogether!).
Grand Canyon Northwestern Arizona
Why you've got to go: Do we really need to convince you? It's only one of the most spectacular, iconic sites in America! This great gorge is 277 miles long and 6,000 feet deep in some spots, with rocks that are millions of years old.
What to do: Don't just stand there and stare! Bike along the South Rim (rent wheels from Bright Angel at the visitor center) or hike into the canyon on free ranger-led tours to spot fossils, lizards, and California Condors. For the ride of lifetime, explore by mule, but reserve your 3-hour excursion at least a year in advance.
