As Spring Back vacations get finalized and families look ahead to plan for long-weekend getaways, it often seems that warm weather destinations and resort style towns are the places that “best of” lists for traveling families. As post-pandemic travel continues to evolve, the idea of multigenerational travel (a trend that was significant pre-Covid), could be making a big return this year. Family vacations in cities, particularly the city of Seattle, are perfect for those families traveling with members both young and new. All members can enjoy specialty shops, restaurants, and events at the famous, Pike Place Market, younger families can explore Seattle Children’s Museum, and all can check out some underwater friends at Seattle Aquarium, and much more. Some great springtime festivals for the family to check out include the Spring Fair 2022 (April 14 – April 24) for great entertainment, yummy Fair Food, rides, and more, as well as the 14th Annual Flower Festival (May 7 – May 8), held at the Pike Place Market, this annual tradition celebrates the beautiful flowers that are native to the Pacific North West.
Families can stay at Provenance Hotels downtown Seattle historic hotel, Hotel Theodore has an amazing central location and is in close proximity to many of the suggested family-friendly attractions.
