The Best Cities for Families in 2017

September 26, 2017 | By forimmediaterele | Filed in: Press Releases.

Travel & Tourism Industry release:

“Cities are often overlooked destinations for family vacations, but can actually be incredibly convenient and budget-friendly,” explains Amanda Norcross, Features Editor of Family Vacation Critic. “With so many attractions and restaurants packed into one destination – plus convenient transportation options and lower costs on the weekend when hotels look to fill rooms vacated by business travelers – cities can be a perfect place for a quick getaway, especially during the school year. This list highlights the best cities that cater to family members of all ages – so parents can feel confident they’ll be able to entertain every member of the family.”

To help families make the most of quick weekend getaways, the editors of Family Vacation Critic have put together weekend guides, outlining where to eat, play and stay in each of the top cities, with options for a variety of budgets.
