Deciding where to take the family on holiday can be tough as there are so many beautiful places you can head to. When picking destinations for families there are many factors you need to take into account: cost, amenities and attractions are just three things to consider.

Below you’ll find five top family friendly destinations to think about.

1. Menorca

Out of all the Balearic Islands, Menorca tends to be the least busy. It has an idyllic, peaceful atmosphere that will help you to relax and forget about life back at home. There are plenty of fun attractions to keep the whole family entertained. One of them is the Aqua Centre where you’ll spend hours enjoying the water slides and various play areas.

2. Florida

Florida is the ultimate family destination. It’s one of the more expensive options but if you have the money it’s definitely worth it. There are many attractions catered to families here including SeaWorld, Disney’s Magic Kingdom and Universal Studios. There simply won’t be enough time to explore all that this beautiful destination has to offer.

Orlando achieve 20th place in the 2013 Post Office Holiday Barometer, still being cheaper than destinations like New York, Italy, New Zealand and China, and with the average bottle or can of Coca-Cola/Pepsi costing £1.36.

3. Barcelona

One destination you might not have considered for a family break is Barcelona. Mainly known for its culture and stunning architecture, this city has plenty of family themed entertainment.

It also has quite a magical feel which is one of the reasons it has such a good reputation with children. The basilica and Gothic Quarter are just two places to head to on your trip.

4. London

You don’t even have to leave the UK to have a great family holiday. London is one of the best loved cities in the world and it isn’t hard to see why. The London Dungeons, Ripley’s Believe it or Not and the London Zoo are all great family attractions to be enjoyed in the capital and there are plenty of free art galleries and museums you can visit too!

It’s easy to get to and easy to get around while you’re there too. It often helps to create an itinerary before you set off so you don’t miss out on any important attractions.

5. Corfu

Corfu has been a popular family destination for many years now. With its hot sunny climate and stunning scenery, it’s the ideal place to forget about your everyday stresses. Some of the best attractions to visit with the family include Aqualand Water Park, Star Beach Water Park and Kalypso Star.

The only thing to keep in mind with Corfu holidays is that many of the beaches are pebbled so make sure you pack appropriate footwear or look up sandy beaches before you go.

    Loved reading this post — it’s very interesting for us in North America to get a different perspective on family travel. Obviously Florida caught my eye in your listing and made sense since there are generally a large number of UK travellers at Walt Disney World whenever we visit. Great list! Menorca is new to me, so one to keep an eye on.
