Vacation Next Year Mommy-of-3-awesome-kids 3 kids; Go Hawks, IA, United States 2584 posts

My husband and I are looking for people's opinions on which vacation you think would be better for our kids age group. We are planning on taking a 2 week vacation next year with our children around July. My husband and I both grew up going on numerous vacations that is what we remember the most about our childhood and we want to give that too our children. Abby will be 9 1/2 by then, Grace will be 6 and Chris will be around 8 months. Chris is too young to really enjoy either but he is part of the family so he is going to. Thank you in advance. I know it is early but we want to start thinking of how much we need to save up.

I vote for Wisconsin Dells! We've been to the Black Hills for Sturgis a bunch of times and of course love the rally, but when we went and didn't go to the rally, it really wasn't that exciting. Granted, I've never been to Wisconsin Dells before, but I hear that it's a ton of fun.

Thank you we are leaning towards Wisconsin Dells because I think the kids would love it. There is circus world where they can ride a elephant and camel and see a bunch of animals. Pirate cove where they can go on a pirate ship and see a pretend pirate. They can mine for gold and a bunch of water rides and other rides. It sounds like it would be a lot of fun. Thank you.

We live about 45 minutes from Adventure land which is an amusement park. That is about the only thing I can think of. I have not been there before I should check it out sometime it sounds neat. Thank you so much.

I have been to both. I vote Wisconsin Dells, it is more kid friendly. I think they would enjoy the Black Hills more when they get a little older.
