The Easter holidays may have been and gone but your chance of enjoying a spring or summer break has not. Why not make the most of one of the forthcoming long weekends, or the school half term holidays at the end of May, and head off on a family trip away? With travel companies like Tots Too offering a wide range of luxury holidays to a number of exquisite destinations you won’t be short of choice and can make some quality memories with your loved ones. Sound good? Then here are five places that are sure to make for a fun-filled break.
If you hate flying and can’t stand the thought of visiting an airport – fear not! There are plenty of things to see and do right on your doorstep, so it’s certainly worth checking out the array of campsites, countryside retreats and beautiful hotels/B&Bs dotted around the country. Sure, the weather can be unreliable on this little island but if the clouds roll in there are many rainy day activities that’ll keep your whole brood entertained.
Feeling a little more adventurous? Then perhaps the sunshine island of Cyprus could be more up your street. Located in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, this country is as charming as it is unique, offering everything from beautiful countryside to spellbinding beaches. You’ll even discover Nicosia, the only divided capital city in the world and can take the opportunity to explore the northern (Turkish) and southern (Greek) parts of the island.
What’s more, spring and early summer is a great time to visit Cyprus as the weather is usually sunny and settled without being overbearingly hot as it can be later in the year towards July and August.
France is another European country that might take your fancy and as the pound has recently reached a more than seven-year high against the Euro, now is the perfect time to book your trip. UK holidaymakers to the Eurozone will have just over 15 per cent more spending power than a year ago, so why not make your way to this romantically chic country and check out all the highlights, from the stunning mountain ranges to attractions such as the Louvre Museum and Eiffel Tower?
This destination is better suited for the next school holiday, allowing you to travel somewhere further afield without having to rush back. So, if you’re a family of intrepid explorers who can’t wait to set off on another adventure, how about sussing out the wonders of Dubai? From breath-taking sand dunes to giant shopping malls and incredible architecture (the Burj Khalifa is the world’s tallest building at 829.9 metres), you’re sure to be impressed.
Similarly, if you don’t mind a long-haul flight, America is a top destination for families. So, whether you want to play cowboys and indians in the Wild West, relax on the sandy beaches of Miami, or check out the sights and sounds of New York, you can tailor a holiday to suit your passions. And, of course, if you’re heading across the pond don’t miss Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando which is absolutely packed to the brim full of fast rides, parades, fireworks parties, tasty eateries, fairies, princesses, castles and much, much more.
