There is a lot to consider when trying to execute a memorable week of quality family time free from boredom, tears and tantrums. Do you try to teach lessons in history, encourage tired legs around thrilling theme parks, build new memories braving adventure activities or create distractions by embracing wildlife?
Ticking everyone’s boxes is no mean feat. You can’t beat a villa holiday for comfort, relaxing beach days, and shallow sandy beaches. What’s not to love about daily ice cream breaks? Cruises offer the easy family fun, with contained entertainment and cultural stop-offs, but you can also get your money’s worth at an all-inclusive luxury resort. Utilise a laid-back kids’ club to schedule in some well-deserved alone time that is sure to please parents.
With such a versatile mix of incredible trips for the whole family, here’s The Independent’s selection of holiday destinations that toddlers, teens and the in-betweens will love to inspire your next family getaway.

Vancouver is full of bustling markets, interactive museums and foodie hotspots. The Canadian city’s dynamic landscape makes it the perfect holiday destination for all ages.
