So why not take your family somewhere in driving distance, and leave the hassle of price behind? Here are three U.S. states that are perfect for family vacations.
1. New Jersey – N.J. is a great state for family vacations! First and foremost, there is the Jersey shore. The beaches all along the Jersey coast are clean and peaceful. Secondly, Jersey has some great boardwalks! Point Pleasant Beach and Wildwood Crest both have awesome boardwalks that have tons of games and rides your kids will love!
