Teenagers are often hard to please.  If you are the parent of one, you are likely to understand this better than anyone else.  Vacationing with your teenager can be an experience, one which you may not always wish to remember.  To prevent boredom and an unhappy child, you are encouraged to select a summer vacation destination that has your teenager in mind.

When selecting a summer vacation destination that has a focus on teens, you are encouraged to keep your child’s likes and dislikes in mind.  Just because one teenager enjoys playing video arcade games, does not mean that yours will.  Not only it is important to find a vacation spot that is geared towards teenagers, it is also important to make sure that your teenagers will enjoy or make use of the available activities and facilities.

Amusement parks and theme parks are popular vacation destinations that target teenagers.  In addition to traditional amusement parks that can be completed all in one day, there a number of amusement park resorts.  These resorts may include Disneyland, Disney World, and Orlando Studios.  In addition to these resorts, you may find smaller parks that offer onsite camping or hotel accommodations, such as Six Flags.

In addition to amusement parks, teenagers may find thrills while white water rafting.  White water rafting tours are available all around the United States.  Popular whitewater rafting locations include West Virginia, Colorado, Utah, and Idaho.  If you are interested in scheduling a white water rafting vacation, you are encouraged to keep your children’s level of, or lack of, rafting experience in mind.  For inexperienced whitewater rafters, a guided tour is recommended.


One vacation destination, for teenagers, that often goes unnoticed is aboard a cruise ship.  Cruise ships operate all around the world. Many of the most popular cruises take place in the Caribbean and in Europe.  Many cruise lines operate multiple cruise ships.  Many of these ships are geared towards families.  Your teenager may find many onboard activities, such as swimming, dancing, playing video games, watching movies, and rock climbing, exciting.  


There are a number of well-known cities, all around the world. These cities are often famous for one reason or another.  If you and your family are interested in taking a vacation with your teenager you may want to consider visiting one of these cities.  New York City, Hollywood, Toronto, Ontario, and New Orleans often attract large numbers of tourists.  Many of these locations often have a number of events and attractions that may appeal to your teenager.

As previously mentioned, it is important to consider what your teenager likes and dislikes doing.  In addition to determining their vacation preferences, you may want to consider allowing them to help you choose your next summer vacation destination.  Allowing your teen to help plan your summer vacation will not only ensure that you will pick a destination that meets their approval, but you will be able to spend time together.  Finding a summer vacation destination together will be time well spent.


No matter how you choose your next summer vacation destination or where that destination ends up being, you and your family should have a memorable experience. By researching a vacation spot before you book your reservations, you can make sure that your memorable experience is truly memorable in a good way.
