One if By Land, and Two if By Sea

Remember when the Americans dressed as Indians and dumped tea into the Boston Harbor? Well, you too can experience the Revolutionary War. Come see where it all started and show your children the USS Constitution, the home of Paul Revere, Old North Church and many of the sites of the Revolutionary War. After discovering our country’s history, check out the Aquarium, Fenway Park, Faneuil Hall, or have some chowder and lobster. If you have time, travel up to Portland Maine for a trip aboard a lobsterman’s boat and see how lobster is really caught. This is a great family trip for kids of all ages.

Aloha, it’s Paradise Hawaiian Style

Hawaii is always a family favorite. Besides ocean breezes and beautiful sunsets, it offers luaus, volcanoes, surfing, snorkeling, golf and a visit to Pearl Harbor. Each island is slightly different, but it is a great destination for families with a variety of ages and interests. While it is in the United States, the islands make it feel exotic and adventurous. You can take a cruise from island to island, stay in a thatched hut or a five star resort. There are many ways to see Hawaii and all are wonderful opportunities for a family reunion or a week of relaxation or adventure. 

The Majesty of Alaska 

Alaska is God’s country. It is one of the most remote and beautiful states in the country. The glaciers, huskies, whales and moose make for scenery unlike any other place on earth. There are few roads so the only way to get around is by sea plane or boat. A cruise offers something for everyone. Excursions can include fishing for crabs, riding with the huskies, white water rafting on a glacier, helicopter rides and more. This will be an unforgettable family experience.
