This season, families looking to stay closer to home on their next trip can look to tour operator Collette Family Vacations' three family-friendly vacations. Tailored for parents and grandparents traveling with children, The Wild West & Yellowstone, Canyon Country and American Spirit escorted tours around the country feature activities including river rafting out West and or a scavenger hunt through some of Philadelphia's historic sites. Opt for an air-inclusive family tour for complimentary roundrip home-to-airport sedan service or alternative vehicle depending on family size.
On the seven-day Wild West & Yellowstone tour, explore Yellowstone National Park, including seeing Old Faithful first-hand, touring Snake River aboard a raft where you'll get a full view of the Grand Tetons and checking out Jackson Hole Rodeo.
With the Canyon Country tour, nine days in Las Vegas will take you on a breakfast cruise on Lake Powell or a pontoon raft down Colorado River. Get a full tour of three national parks, including Zion, Bryce, and the Grand Canyon. Our favorite is the tour's Chili Cook Off in Scottsdale.
On the eight-day American Spirit tour, start in Washington, D.C. will with a visit to the Spy Museum or the National Zoo. Head to Colonial Williamsburg to meet local artisans, before a tour by a local guide will introduce you to the farmlands and history and traditions of Amish Country. We like discovering Philadelphia via a scavenger hunt.
