Five Family Holiday #NInja-Approved Destinations…
It’s getting near that fantastic time of year when you can only think about one thing – the annual summer family holiday! But where are the most #NInja places to go for the BIG summer vacation with the kids…? We’ve teamed up with NI’s mysterious holiday guru, the Holiday NInja, to find out…
Orlando, Florida, USA
The absolute behemoth that is Orlando surely HAS to be the number one family holiday destination in the whole of the world! The theme park capital has so much to do and see that you will barely be able to get around half of what is on offer over a two week holiday. And with direct flights operating from Belfast with Virgin Atlantic, there has never been an easier, more convenient time, to visit Mickey Mouse and his fantastic friends.
The ‘camping style holiday’ of having that independence to stay in a chalet or mobile home on foreign lands is very appealing to a lot of local families. And the options on offer, particularly in France, mean the choice is varied based on specific requirements. Parks, forests, beaches, waterparks, games, shows, you name it – the EuroCamps offer unrivalled family fun that is within (albeit a long) driving distance!
Heading away to one of the many resorts in the Algarve has always been popular – however over the last three to four years, the costs of holidaying in these areas has become exceptionally reasonable and particularly cost-effective. Amazing beaches, activities all year round and some of the best waterparks in Europe mean that the Algarve should be near the top of your wishlist for a sunshine European break with the family.
As if having amazing beaches, family friendly activities and nightlife wasn’t enough – then Salou can offer two things that most beach resorts can’t. Firstly, it has the biggest Theme Park in Europe on its doorstep with Portaventura World, as well as the recently added Ferrari World, giving you the opportunity for some maximum fun. And if that wasn’t enough, it’s only an hour away from Barcelona – perfect for a daytrip or overnight jaunt! It’s for those reasons that Salou is one of the more popular family summer holiday destinations.
Sailing off on a cruise has become more affordable than ever – especially considering your meals (and drink!) is included in a lot of the packages sold. And the options on-board for kids are fantastic, with an abundance of activities and clubs available for them. Shop around and find a cruise that is right for your family – I recommend one that can take in three or four European city destinations, do you can tick off your #NInja bucket list!
