USA Today has some great family travel ideas, so we wanted to share them - along with a few tips of our own!
1) Consider banning video games, TVs and radios, and bring along plenty of games instead.
Fairmont Kenauk in Quebec offers great cabins that are totally off the grid - no phone, no TV, no internet. The resort is set on 65,000 acres of protected wilderness domain, one of North America's largest and longest-established private fish and game reserves - it boasts more than 70 lakes within its borders!
2) Get a little more intense with your outdoor vacation.
The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies is a family favorite and offers access to dog sledding, cross country skiing or snow shoeing in winter, and has lots of exciting warm weather attractions like horseback riding, fishing, mountain biking and rafting.
3) Ports of call give you a chance to explore the sights, creating family memories that will last a lifetime.
We have Fairmonts in some amazing ports of call, like Fairmont Le Château Frontenac located in the heart of Old Québec. Cruise goers can experience the hotel’s historic locale with a variety of pre-planned itineraries that help guests experience the city’s most popular attractions and hidden treasures.
4) Stay in a nearby hotel or spring for a private cabin that opens right onto the beach.
Fairmont Mayakoba has its own private beach on Mexico’s Riviera Maya, and guests can take golf carts to it directly from their hotel rooms!
5) Look for a resort that caters to families; the good ones can keep you occupied for the weekend without ever leaving the property.
At the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, the year-round complimentary Kid's Club program makes vacations easy. While parents golf, dine, spa or just sit by one of five sparkling pools, kids can head to one of the resort’s two programs for children and teenagers.
