When summer vacation rolls around, it’s tempting to just pack the kids in the car and head to the closest beach for a week. But summer vacation doesn’t have to mean doing the same old, same old! If you’re in search of educational, out-of-the-box family summer vacation ideas, we suggest a trip out west.
If you live on the east coast, a trip out west can be far more exotic than hoping on a plane for the Caribbean. Have your children yet experienced the majesty of the Grand Canyon or Montana’s Big Sky Country? How do these summer vacation ideas sound? It’s like a whole different world out there!
Plus, it’s an incredible opportunity to share America’s natural gems with your kids. Discovering what’s in our own backyard, so to speak, can be such an inspiring experience.

As summer vacation ideas for your family, here are two such companies putting a lot of pampering in an “out West” experience:
The Resort at Paws Up:
This gorgeous luxury family resort in Montana is like the summer camp you’ve always dreamed of.
Picture horse back riding through Montana’s breathtaking forests, cattle drives across the great open plains, and warming up by a rousing campfire at night, a cup of hot cocoa — or a glass of wine! — in hand.
But this family resort puts a decidedly luxurious spin on the summer camp theme.
Families can try their hand at “glamping” — glamorous camping — in one of the resorts decked-out tents. These roomy tents often feature soaking tubs, chandeliers, and rustic luxe design accents. Breathtaking views across tinkling creeks, and gourmet, farm-fresh dining, await you outside your tent.Let's try glamping (glamorous camping)! #luxuryvacations. Click To Tweet
