Do you want to jump on an airplane and visit an island for your next family vacation? Have you forgotten to either renew your passports, or haven’t even applied for them? Well, there are at least seven islands you can visit where there is no passport required! These islands are all part of the US, and no passport is required to visit any of them. All you need to do is pack your bags, hop on a plane, or go on a car ride, and make those memories with your family while on an island vacation.
Assateague Island is one of the best places to take a family vacation when you want to spend time with wild horses. There are a couple of thoughts on how these wild horses ended up on the island. Some people prefer the story where the early American settlers brought them to the island. Others think the horses arrived on the island when the ship they were on wrecked right off the Virginia Coast.
It doesn’t really matter how the wild horses arrived on Assateague Island. All that matters is you can enjoy watching the horses while making memories with your family. There is no bad time to take a family trip to Assateague Island. However, the annual Pony Swim is the most popular time. I recommend planning your vacation well in advance if you want to see this phenomenal event.
Does your family love to have fun in the sun in Florida? Do you prefer to stay away from the theme parks while having fun? If you answered yes to both those questions, I recommend heading down to the Florida Keys. There are plenty of islands there to capture your attention.
Although, Dry Tortugas National Park is the best area to visit. You must take a seaplane or ferry to this remote island. Once you arrive, your family can explore Fort Jefferson or spend all your time snorkeling in the clear water near the reef.
There is no limit to how much fun your family can have while making memories in paradise!
The island of Kodiak in Alaska is the complete opposite of what you will find down in sunny Florida. This remote island can only be reached by plane via Anchorage or a ferry from Homer. Time on this island will be spent in nature.
Your family will want to hike the trails. Go canoeing in the creeks. And capture a glimpse of the Kodiak bear within the National Wildlife Refuge. I can make arrangements for your family to enter the National Wildlife Refuge as I am planning your personalized family vacation.
Not ready for a family vacation on a remote island? Well, you can spend your time on charming Mackinac Island instead. This is the perfect destination for a family vacation. The kids will love attending the knife-making workshop. Afterwards, hike one of the trails or take a horse and carriage ride on the cobblestone streets.
Another day can be spent on the beach or walking through downtown. Don’t skip the Mackinac fudge. It’s delicious, so plan on making one last stop before you leave to grab some for home.
Puerto Rico is a commonwealth of the US, so there is no passport required to fly there for a family vacation. Your entire family can practice speaking Spanish, as you wander around the colorful streets. It is possible to learn all about pirates at the castillos, or castles, in San Juan.
There are so many beaches in Puerto Rico to choose from too. A little beach hopping may be required before your family finds a favorite one.
Any of the Hawaiian Islands are perfect for a family vacation. However, Kauai is one of the quieter ones without all the touristy crowds. The entire family can learn about many of the Hawaiian cultures and traditions while on vacation in Kauai.
Take the time to visit plantations, hike the countryside, and go swimming under a waterfall or two. You may even want to get your hearts racing a little with a ziplining adventure. There are so many reasons why Kauai is perfect for your next family vacation.
You don’t need to spend time in the hustle and bustle of major cities in California during your family vacation. Instead, head to Catalina for a relaxing island experience. This is one of the Channel Islands, which are only about an hour from Los Angeles.
When you arrive in Catalina, begin your adventures in the Port of Avalon. It is best to explore this island on foot, so you don’t miss anything. In between walks, grab some fresh seafood to keep everyone fueled.
No passport is required to visit these seven islands for your next family vacation. So, don’t beat yourself up over not having a passport or forgetting to renew it. Simply head to one of these beautiful islands and enjoy making memories with your family. You won’t regret a moment of time you spend away from the mainland.
