ZooTampa at Lowry Park
Who doesn’t absolutely love spending time with animals?
ZooTampa at Lowry Park is without a doubt one of the best zoo parks out there. Children can get really close to animals, and can even feed some of them. In Wallaroo Station, there is a children’s area where kids can brush a goat’s fur and walk down a path as kangaroos hop in front of them. It really is an exciting experience both for parents and children. There is even a Safari Africa exhibit where you can climb on a platform and feed giraffes.
Another great thing about ZooTampa at Lowry Park is the fact that there are many “mommy stops” along the entire park. Whenever you feel tired, you can take a break on benches which are placed in shaded areas or enjoy a picnic with the entire family as they have provided picnic tables at certain areas. Doesn’t that sound awesome?
Yellowstone National Park, United States
If your children absolutely love nature, and their favorite activity is hiking, then Yellowstone National Park is the perfect family-friendly vacation destination for you.
An absolutely breathtaking national park. Your children will definitely love it.
Yellowstone was established as a national park in 1872 in order to protect its dramatic canyons, alpine rivers, lush forest, hot springs, geysers, and amazing wildlife. The national park is mostly in Wyoming, but it also spreads into parts of Montana and Idaho as well. It’s a large area which will definitely amaze you with its major attractions.
It is one of the most visited national parks, and after you see its beautiful wilderness, you will definitely realize why many tourists gladly return.
Elafonisi Beach, Crete, Greece
If you are looking for a relaxing family getaway, then Elafonisi Beach might be the right place for you.

The beautiful sandy beach, Elafonisi, was a secret only a few locals on Crete new about. However, in 2014, it was named one of the world’s top 25 beaches, and the entire world found out about this magical gem. The water is very clear, however as the sun goes down, the sand becomes pink, and the water gets a beautiful pink reflection.
Elafonisi is truly heaven on earth, and if you are a nature lover, you’ll definitely be amazed by this mesmerizing beach. It’s truly a great choice for a family-friendly vacation if you are looking to relax and enjoy the beauty of the sea.
