If you are a parent, spending time with your kids while they are still young should be a priority. To create life-lasting memories with your little ones, take them to the following places and have the best times of your lives:
Dinosaur Valley State Park – USA
The Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose, Texas is a well-preserved park that contains traces of prehistoric life from 113 million years ago, during the start of the Cretaceous Period.
With the entire family, go hunting for dinosaur tracks, hike, swim in the river, fish, ride a horse, mountain bike, or camp at the 617-hectare site that serves as home for a diverse group of flora and fauna.
Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Japan
To enjoy a magical time with your children, visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at the Universal Studios’ park in Osaka, Japan.
With the Hogwarts Castle so visible once you enter the area, it feels like you have really been transported to a world where spells, wands, owls, and magical beasts are the norm.
Make sure to try the Flight of the Hippogriff and Forbidden Journey rides, and check out every single shop on Diagon Alley, such as Ollivanders and Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, and in Hogsmeade, like Zonko’s and Honeydukes. Also, do not forget to enjoy a mug of butterbeer at either The Three Broomsticks or Hog’s Head.
Niagara Falls – Canada
The Niagara Falls is a natural wonder that is world-renowned for its stunning and spectacular beauty. Found in Ontario, Canada, seeing it up close is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that people of all ages will enjoy.
To fully witness the grandeur of Niagara, there are many options to take: by hiking, getting on the Niagara Skywheel, climbing up the Skylon Tower observation deck, or taking a helicopter tour.
The area also has other leisure facilities to offer, such as theme parks, waterparks, cinemas, restaurants, casinos, and museums.
Whale Watching – Iceland
The waters off the coast of Iceland are home to several types of whale — minke, pilot, humpback, blue, sperm, fin, sei, and killer, so whale-watching tours are quite common there.
In addition to the excitement of spotting a whale flipper or spout, the tour also provides an opportunity to appreciate the magnificent birdlife and nature in the area.
