If you love to travel, then I want to tell you about a revolutionary way to vacation. For example Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Wild Rivers and Aquarium of the Pacific are all within a 30 minute drive and can offer a lot of fun activities to do. Then after a full day of having fun on the rides or looking at the beautiful fish return to the nice peaceful resort style living of Huntington Beach.
Full of tunnels, playrooms, and secret rooms, this family-friendly retreat for up to 25 people in western Washington bills itself as a place “where kids entertain themselves.” There’s even a slide leading down to a play space full of ride-on toys. We’re talking personal butlers, a serene spa and even private guides who will give you a tour of the island’s hilltop lighthouse and crystal-clear lagoons.
These pads aren’t for people who like to be waited on hand and foot – guests usually do their own cleaning and washing up. But if you don’t fancy battling for a sun-lounger each morning, private properties can offer space for groups of friends or families with kids who need to let off steam.
Please add yours to the Holiday Rentals thread. In the Easter school holidays I got a 5 beachfront apartment at Treyarnon Beach (Cornwall) for Â£500 instead of Â£950, simply by leaving it until four days before we wanted to go. I’ve had similar deals in Northumberland and the Scottish Highlands.
Plan your hotels along your route, never doing more than 6 hours of driving a day – 5 if you’re on a cross-country road trip. Recommended Hotel: Grand Isle Resort & Spa particularly suits families with its white-sand beach and one- to four-bedroom villas. It’s hard to beat an all inclusive vacation for the simple fact that everything you want and need at the resort destination is paid for before you ever leave home.
