Top Kid-Friendly Summer Vacations

8 of 9

Gold Country, California

Let your little adventurers run wild in California's Gold Country. Teach your kids about the historic gold rush that brought Americans west in the 19th century. Visit museums and tour beautiful landscaped gardens. If you prefer to rough it, try one of the hiking trails -- there are plenty of kid-friendly paths that your whole family can enjoy. If the weather is hot, cool off in a public swimming pool, or take a break with a picnic. Transport yourself and your children to another time by taking a trip to Gold Country.
