OverviewFrom Los Angeles to New York City, from Chicago down to Dallas, there are any number of fun family vacations to embark upon. From amazing roller coaster parks to odd attractions, the possibilities are endless. As Clark Griswold from “National Lampoon’s Vacation” would say, “Hey, hey, easy kids. Everybody in the car. Boat leaves in two minutes … or perhaps you don’t want to see the second largest ball of twine on the face of the Earth, which is only four short hours away?Six Flags Over TexasSix Flags in Dallas (actually Arlington, Texas) boasts a number of trip-worthy rides and attractions. With rides named “Batman,” “Superman: Tower of Power” and “Mr. Freeze,” the young ones will love the superhero-themed section of the park, further expanding their imaginations and creativity. That’s not to say the adults won’t have fun, too. These thrills are designed for the whole family, bringing them closer together than ever.DisneylandM-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E! What man, woman or child does not succumb to that tingly feeling when embraced by the magic and wonder of Disney? The “Indiana Jones Adventure” and classic “Magic Mountain” are sure to excite every member of the family. Visiting with characters as Mickey and Donald at Disney’s parks in Orlando, Fla., and Los Angeles will bring the parents back to yesteryear while introducing the children to family-friendly characters and role models.Universal StudiosLights! Camera! Action! Behold Hollywood up close and personal at Universal Studios’ theme parks in Orlando and Los Angeles. With rides like “Revenge of the Mummy” and “Jurassic Park: The Ride,” the family will be fully enveloped in the blockbuster movies they have watched at home. Take the tour and see where some of your favorite movies have been made or watch some new ones in the midst of filming.Sea WorldExperience the magic and wonder of the ocean at Sea World in Orlando and San Diego. The “Dolphin Cove” is sure to delight as onlookers can watch the dolphins play and interact with the audience. Be sure to visit Shamu and watch as the majestic whale glides gracefully through the water and up to the glass past the fascinated onlookers. This park has so many things to do and see that a family weekend getaway would be packed with excitement.Yellowstone National ParkGet back to nature and take the family to see the wonders of Yellowstone National Park. Spanning three different states, it can’t be too far from any corner of this great country. See bears, wolves and elk frolic and play in their natural wildlife habitat. Take tours to get up close and personal to these wondrous creatures, whose stories of deviant behavior are far more fiction than fact. Become one with nature at Yellowstone.ResourcesreferenceSix Flags Over TexasreferenceDisneylandreferenceUniversal StudiosresourceSea WorldresourceYellowstone National Park
