The year 2020 changed the world as we knew it. But after the pandemic situation gradually came under control, 2021 brought scope for kids to explore the wonders of the world once again.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Orlando, Florida)
The world of magic unraveled and recreated in amazing detail is just the place for the ‘Potterheads.’ Ride the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey to experience the magic. Next, there is ultra-fast Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure coaster for an adrenalin rush. The tamer Flight of the Hippogriff is also not to miss. Then head to Hogsmeade for a souvenir hunt. Finally, a treat of kids-friendly butterbeer and wand shopping at Ollivanders in Diagon Alley will make the bucket list full.
Riviera Maya (Mexico)
Riviera Maya is the perfect fun under the sun getaway for a family vacation. Snorkeling in the freshwater cenotes, enjoying the underwater river at the exciting Xcaret Eco Theme Park, and watching a musical show titled ‘Xcaret Mexico Espectacular’ are most popular in Playa del Carmen. Aloha Paddle Club’s water sport rentals are there to fulfill dream adventures. The little ones will also enjoy splashing and playing with dolphins, manatees, and cute sea lions at the Dolphin Discovery in Puertos Aventuras. Watching a spectacular sunset after climbing the cliff-top ruins in Tulum is the best way to cap the adventurous day.
Aspen Snowmass (Aspen, Colorado)
Aspen Snowmass stores something for all skiers and snowboarders. It is a perfect choice for a family vacation. The ‘Kids Snowmass Program’ offers daily child-friendly packages. 2-4 years old toddlers will have a great time at The Treehouse Kids Adventure Center. Camp Aspen is for older kids and pre-teens. Meeting up to ski together, tubing, or taking a free naturalist tour is the best way to spend the afternoon. Then, a Snowcat dinner or a family Chuckwagon Dinner at a remote cabin is perfect to end the day in this ultimate winter wonderland.
