Top 5 Family Beach Destinations in the USA

School’s out! If you’re looking for a weekend or week-long getaway to detox after camp ends, head to one of these sleepy American beach towns full of family-friendly activities and accommodations.  Notoriously fun for the whole crew, make lasting memories as you whittle away the sunny days. If you do your homework, these towns have more than just sand bars; they’re places to get your culture and history fix, too.


Newport, Rhode Island

Home to spectacular scenery, awe-inspiring architecture, rich history, a thriving downtown waterfront and legendary hospitality, Newport, Rhode Island is considered by many to be the shining gem in the coastal crown of New England. Play at the International Tennis Hall of Fame, historic homes, Fort Adams or take a walking tour by the sea.
