From the second your plane lands on the island of Maui on your family
vacation, a remarkable feeling happens. It starts with a feeling of
relaxation as you catch the scent of orchids and gardenias; as you
wander through the outdoor corridors, the warm, tropical heat wraps
around you. You know that you and your family are on a very special,
almost magical family vacation. You are on the Hawaiian island of Maui,
one of the best family vacation destinations in the world. Maui is
perfect for family vacations.
|When it comes to East Coast family vacations, Hawley, PA, cannot be
beat. Located just two hours from the greatest metropolis in the world,
New York City, Hawley has small-town charm and slow pace in spades.
Hawley is a great spot for a week long family vacation and as a
day-trip escape from the craziness of a New York City family vacation.
The location of Hawley certainly makes it a wonderful spot for a family
vacation; but the wealth of family activities makes it a great family
vacation destination all on its own.
