Do you long to take your family on vacation away from the crowds? Yet do you want to still be WOWED during your time away from home? Well, there are a few underrated places to visit in the US left. You can easily choose one of them to visit and make those precious memories with your family that you will cherish forever. Today, I am going to share the underrated places to visit in the US that will be perfect for a future family vacation.
Maine is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the US. Especially during the summer months. Avoiding Acadia National Park and heading to the Schoodic Peninsula will have your family staying away from the crowds. This peninsula is only an hour away from Acadia. So, you can easily visit the national park during a day trip if you want.
Pecos National Historical Park is only a quick thirty-minute drive from Santa Fe. However, not too many people are aware of this park when they take a family vacation in New Mexico. This park is full of indigenous history and culture, as well as the ruins of a Mission church.
A hike through this park will take you to two underground ceremonial chambers, known as kivas. Don’t worry, the hike is only a mile long. So, you will have plenty of time to explore the rest of the park.
Lots of families head to Lake Michigan to spend a little time together. If you want to avoid the crowds, I recommend going to the Upper Peninsula instead. There are three Great Lakes on this peninsula. So, your family will have many options for water sports and swimming. Consider paddling around the Les Cheneaux Islands or taking a cruise on Lake Superior.
If you happen to head to Mackinac Island, be prepared for it to be busier than the rest of the Upper Peninsula.
Just to the north of West Palm Beach, your family will discover Jensen Beach. This coastal town used to be the Pineapple Capital of the World. Now it is a laidback place where you can make memories on the sandy beaches and while eating delicious seafood.
Jensen Beach does get crowded on Thursdays when the weekly street party, Jammin’ Jensen, is held. It is also busy during the three days of the Pineapple Festival.
Don’t want to spend all your time in Jackson Hole or Teton Pass while on a family vacation? Head over to Driggs, Idaho instead! This small mountain town offers a charming Main Street and nearby ski resort. This is the perfect underrated place to visit in the US during the winter for a family ski trip. You will definitely make memories here without the crowds!
Okay, you can easily switch between Kansas City in Kansas and Missouri when you take a family vacation to this underrated place in the US. Your family will love visiting museums like the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. And no one will be able to resist the delicious barbecue!
These are the best underrated places to visit in the US. I can always find other options for your next family trip when I personalize your family vacation itinerary. You may even want to check out these underrated places in Europe for your next family trip!
