Planning a family vacation can be challenging. With so many options, and a million little details to try and manage, it can easily start to feel overwhelming. You can save yourself a lot of stress—and likely also a lot of money—by letting the travel experts at Trafalgar Tours help.
They have done most of the legwork for you, by compiling a number of great options to create an assortment of family vacation packages. This gives you a huge headstart, as all you need to do is browse the choices and take your pick. No matter which you choose, you are sure to have an exciting and unforgettable adventure with your family.
If your clan is the adventurous, trailblazing type, you may feel drawn to the Pioneer Adventures of the Old West trip. You will feel like you’ve been transported to the Old West as you trek around the Grand Canyon and explore rock formations that trace back millions of years. You will also get a chance to check out authentic Southwest Native American art in Navajo Country.
There are two other options that will each also make you feel like a time traveler visiting the era of true gunslingers and the Pony Express. First, the Wild West Cowboys and Buffalos - End Denver tour. Staring off in Salt Lake City, the route for this trip takes you through six states in total. You can ride along Snake River on a scenic optional wilderness float trip or gaze in wonder upon the impressive scenes Mother Nature has created in Montana's Big Sky Country.

Or consider the somewhat similar but uniquely exciting Wild West Cowboys and Buffalos - End Rapid City tour. This gives you many of the same highlights, but your trip will conclude in Rapid City, where you can join an excursion to Bear Country USA, a wildlife park that has an impressive claim to fame—it’s the world's largest private viewing habitat of American black bear.
Explore the great outdoors on an expedition in and around Costa Rica as part of the Monkeys, Jungles and Volcanoes tour. Soak in all of the natural spectacles the region has to offer, including the sounds of jungle animals and the sights of wonders like thermal mineral pools.
If surfboards and shoreline views are more your style, consider the California Dreamin’ road trip. Starting out at the City by the Bay, you may just leave your heart in San Francisco after spending time exploring the city via cable cars and making friends with the sea lions that hang out near the piers. You will then head to Yosemite National Park, and will also get an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Or maybe you would like the chance to experience a taste of Colonial Times. The Trails of Liberty tour is basically an immersion experience, putting you right in the middle of the locations where our nation first established its identity. You will spend time exploring the many historical attractions and national landmarks in Washington, DC before heading to Philadelphia, Harrisburg and Gettysburg.
Whichever selection you choose, any of these options will provide you with an opportunity to create amazing family memories while also benefitting from once-in-a-lifetime educational experiences.
