Adventurous Vacations That Families Love

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwired - Dec 19, 2013) -  While camping can be a lot of fun, if you want your kids to love the woods as much as you do, ease them in with day hikes offset by the comforts of family-friendly hotels. A good night's sleep increases everyone's enthusiasm for something new. This travel guide by Marriott suggests hotels with easy access to some of the best hiking trails in the country.

  • There is no shortage of hiking trails around Atlanta, GA, so pack your boots and binoculars and head out. Bring the troop's tired tootsies back to our Atlanta Marriott hotels for Southern cooking and splash time in a sparkling pool.
  • Hiking isn't the only activity a forest offers. Birders know catching a glimpse of a feathered beauty means spending time in lovely places. Hartford, CT wows future bird enthusiasts with its family-friendly attractions and accommodations.
  • Seattle, WA is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, and for good reason. Cross-country skiing, hiking, fishing and biking in stunning locations are all within easy reach of this city.
  • Charming Asheville, NC is surrounded by more than 3,000 miles of free hiking trails. Spend the day exploring the woods and the evenings exploring this delightful metropolis just off the Blue Ridge Parkway.
  • Cast a line in a lake or river near Branson, MO, and you're bound to bring home dinner. Charter a boat or fish from the bank, either way you'll spend a relaxing day with your family; even if you don't catch the big one, your Marriott hotel offers fantastic meals that will suit everyone.
