Our July blog has us thinking back to the summer vacations of our yesteryear when we experienced things together as a family for the first time.

Time spent with family is worth every second, but what makes moments spent with family truly special are the memories that we make. We hope this year, you and your family get a chance to enjoy the experience of a once-in-a-lifetime journey together safely. We’ve mapped out five different vacations to take with your family to create lifelong memories:


  • Disneyland: Disney is as family-friendly as it gets! With character meet & greets, parades, rides, and fantastic food, this location will surely give you memories that will last a lifetime! There’s more than a single park to Disneyland; there’s adventures all over entertainment and pop culture, such as the newly-added Avengers Campus. Disneyland is a world of activities and experiences. It’s a fantastic adventure that is life-changing for many children.

  • Grand Canyon: If you are looking for somewhere to be out in the fresh air or be outdoors in nature, this is the place for you. Aside from vacationing, visiting the grand canyon will also give you an educational opportunity to learn about its history, native vegetation, and wildlife. 

  • Hollywood, CA: The Hollywood Walk of Fame will be one to remember. You can enjoy taking a stroll through Hollywood Boulevard while visiting iconic museums, theaters and snapping some pictures of your favorite celebrities’ stars! With Universal Studios also a few minutes away, you can enjoy this theme park with friends and family. 

  • San Francisco, CA: With attractions such as the famous Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39, Alcatraz, and many more, this trip is sure to be a great one! San Francisco’s variety of culture and cuisine is another great reason to visit as there are many fantastic options to try around the city. 

  • Monterey, CA: Monterey offers some of the best attractions, such as visiting Old Fisherman’s Wharf and taking a boat out to spot whales. This area is one of the only places where you can find whales year-round, so it will not disappoint! If you are into water activities, kayaking, boating, and hang-gliding are some of the great opportunities you have in the area. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is a staple piece that is a must-visit when being in the area! Monterey is also close to many other famous attractions such as Pebble Beach, Carmel, and Big Sur. 

Each of these destinations are fun, somewhat cost affordable, and within driving distance.
