As the new year commences, resolutions are being made left, right and centre and we’re starting to shape our individual vision for 2022.
Maybe this will be the year you finally make that career move you’ve been dreaming of, overhaul your lifestyle with a new health and beauty regime or simply start saying ‘yes’ more!
Perhaps you’re even dreaming of your next travel adventure – after years of restrictions on international travel, 2022 may just be the perfect time to see the world with your family.
With that in mind, these are just three stunning locations to make lifelong family memories.
1. Lisbon, Portugal
For those who love the vibe of the city but find the hustle and bustle a little overwhelming, Lisbon is the perfect location to experience a combination of modernity, culture and tradition in a lively, yet less hectic, environment.
With countless stunning historical sites, breath-taking beaches and sunshine three hundred days of the year, Lisbon is also considered one of the best locations in Europe for quality of life, and a quick glance at Property Lisbon showcases why it’s a prime spot for investors too.
Top visiting spots for families include the Sintra National Park, which resembles a scene straight from a fairytale and the Lisbon Oceanarium, while the country’s many beaches are perfect for a family day out.
2. Knott’s Berry Farm, California
If you’re looking for an alternative to the classic Disney holiday, Knott’s Berry Farm in California is an internationally renowned holiday hotspot.
At around 100 years old, this fabulous theme park is a favourite with families across the US – and the world – for a reason. The park features four key themed areas – Camp Snoopy, Old West Ghost Town, Fiesta Village and The Boardwalk – each packed with rides, experiences and events, as well as places to stay and eat onsite.
For families seeking a sunny escape, there are few locations better than California, and Knott’s Berry Farm offers an unforgettable experience.
3. Whitby, UK
Whitby is well-known for its famous beach, but being a UK location, we wouldn’t advise counting on the sun.
Nevertheless, this coastal town is a great spot for visiting families.
Whitby is also famous around the world as the home of Count Dracula, providing the inspiration for Stoker’s classic 1897 horror novel. The town is extremely proud of its gothic heritage, making it the perfect location for a Halloween trip, and its annual events include Whitby Goth Weekend, a family-friendly event home to live music, craft stalls, art and literature, as well as a second-to-none sartorial display.
If travel is your top priority in 2022, these three locations are perfect for a holiday hotspot to make family memories you’ll treasure for life.
