Northeast Family Travel

I've spent most of my life living in the Northeast of the US, so I'm probably biased. But I think this region offers some of the best family travel destinations in the United States, including beach, historical, and ski destinations.

Because the Northeast states are relatively small, it can be easy to combine travel to one or more destinations. I always love road tripping to a new part of the region, or returning to one of my favorites.

If you are planning Northeast family travel, check out all of our posts with hotel, attraction, and destination reviews, from Boston to the White Mountains, NYC to Coastal Maine.

Note that we've experienced some of the destinations/attractions below at no cost for purposes for review in the past.
