Vacation ideas: Kid-friendly getaways

The 2022 summer vacation season is just about in the books, with kids headed back to the classroom soon. 

But if you’re planning a 2023 summer vacation or even a spring break trip, here are some spots that provide lasting memories and fun for a kid-friendly getaway. 

San Juan Islands, Washington 

San Juan Island 

The San Juan Islands are the ultimate playground for kids because of their outdoor appeal. Depending on your available time, you might try visiting both San Juan Island and Orcas Island to experience the differences they offer. Ideally, you’d want to spend two or three days on each island for a chance to truly explore. 

A ferry ride from Seattle to San Juan Island takes about 3 hours and 45 minutes, but is foot traffic only. If you are thinking about bringing your vehicle, drive to the Anacortes Ferry Terminal. Either way, you’ll arrive at Friday Harbor, a charming town with quaint stores and many dining options.

The Barn Suite at Saltwater Farm in San Juan Island, Washington, is perfect for families who need a bit more space and privacy. It even includes a fun loft for kids.

Book your stay at Saltwater Farm, which is removed from the bustle of the ferry dock. The farm has a variety of options to suit both small and larger families. The Barn Suite is perfect if you need a bit more space and privacy, as it is set away from the rest of the lodging and offers two bedrooms along with a fun loft for kids and a kitchen. The farm offers five smartly designed guest houses nestled in the woods on 162 wild acres.
