What is your favorite family-friendly vacation destination?

Many famillies are drawn by the Hope Valley/Hwy. 88 area, with nearby Lake Tahoe.

Family-friendly vacation destinations – what is your favorite?

The Delta King (a floating hotel), moored at Old Sacramento, is a place where families can gather for a few days/nights and explore Old Sac and nearby downtown Sacramento.

With the holidays, families have the opportunity to discuss and plan a family vacation for the coming year. My own family, with two daughters, their husbands, three grandkids and we, the grandparents, have already begun the discussion.

So, we are seeking your recommendation for best family-friendly vacation destination. We’ll publish the best submissions right around Christmas time, so send them to me!

Please send a short description, 100 words or less, and a photo or two.  Please also include why you loved the destination, including attributes like: “it had appeal for all ages, kids to adults. Scenic, perhaps on the water. Fun activities for kids, adults. Good restaurants and lodging nearby. Affordable. Within a short drive of San Joaquin County” – that kind of thing.

Readers challenge: Send your favorite family destination, with the reasons why (100 words or less) and a photo or two (if you have them) by December 15. We’ll publish your top selections right around Christmas time!
