Top 10 Summer Travel Destinations for Families

Orlando, Fla.

The first thing most families probably associate with Orlando is Walt Disney World, and for many, that's probably "enough said." But Orlando also has other attractions that help ensure it's a great summer destination for families. Besides the theme parks and water parks like SeaWorld and Universal Studios, families can race go-karts, ride hot air balloons, play miniature golf and get in a round of regular golf, too. And if you're into kitsch, Florida's specially styled souvenirs are cheap and plentiful in countless shops, and dinner shows are a great way to wrap up a day.
