Family Vacations to Take in Early 2021: A Short Guide

Family Vacations to Take in Early 2021: A Short Guide January 14, 2021

This past year, you may well have cancelled a long-awaited, eagerly anticipated family vacation. You might have instead spent more hours than you care to mention holed up inside with your young children – having to work remotely and keep them entertained all at the same time. It’s no wonder that families are desperate for some time out of the house – and some time to relax – in the early weeks and months of 2021. This short guide, aware of the coronavirus’s restrictions, aims to prompt you with some ideas.


It’s cold in the early months of the year – but that’s not necessarily an issue for experienced and well-equipped campers. If you’re a family that likes to go for a little adventure and relishes the outdoors’ cool wide space, this is certainly the option for you. Swapping the cramped environment of home for wide vistas of a mountainside, or the cool damp interior of a forest is just the way to unwind after a difficult year.

In terms of equipment, you should make sure you have a high-quality tent and very warm sleeping bags for you and your children. Make your sleep as cozy as possible with airbeds and blankets, too. Finally, build a big fire in the evening around which you can sit and roast marshmallows and sing songs – the perfect evening to spend away with your family.

Apartment Rentals

You are unlikely to be able to travel anywhere very exotic this vacation season – not until the summer, anyway. So, if you have some vacation time saved up, and you want to get away briefly with your family, a US-based apartment rental might be one of your best bets.

And these are very easy to arrange. Indeed, some of them – like the imaginative and adventurous Solterra Resort – come equipped with games, rooms, and decor aimed at exciting and pleasing children. If you need to get away and want to spend some time in a new area of the country, and in a place, that’ll delight your children, such resorts are your best bet.


Finally, you’re able to search online on Airbnb to find the kind of place that you and your family can properly relax over a short vacation in the US. There are millions of Airbnb’s across the world, and many hundreds of thousands of them in the US itself – and there are some in absolutely stunning locations in the middle of nowhere, affording absolute peace and tranquility to your family.

This should be seen as the option that takes the best of the camping world and combines it with the comfort of sleeping in a bed and under a roof. You should be able to find an Airbnb that you can reach by car, and which you know that your kids will love to stay in and explore in the early months of 2021.

There you have it: three awesome ideas for your family vacation in the early months of 2021.
