Have it ALL in Barcelona, Spain
Whether you have FC Barça fans in your family, art lovers, or foodies, Barcelona has something for everyone. No trip to Barcelona would be complete without exploring the works of Gaudi from the Sagrada Familia to the more family-friendly Park Güell with outstanding views of the entire city.

Explore the culinary dishes of Spain and other Mediterranean cultures at the Boqueria (large market with fresh produce, meats, and restaurants), which is located off the major pedestrian thoroughfare in Barcelona called La Rambla. For the more adventurous, you can see Barcelona from a cable car starting at the port with arrival at the beautiful vista of Montjuic. Perhaps this is the place for your next family photo? With so much to see, you will need to recharge your batteries. With lavish accommodations and superb location, the Mandarin Oriental Barcelona offers serenity with spa treatments, childcare, mouth-watering cuisine, and shopping.

Yosemite without Roughing It
Many have fallen in love with California’s splendid and magnificent Yosemite. From writers and environmentalists to photographers like Ansel Adams and even you and your family, Yosemite’s natural beauty is living art and inspiration to all. Although much of Yosemite is to be experienced on foot: hiking trails, waterfalls, or beautiful lookout points, don’t forget that when the sun sets, it is time to turn your eyes to the brilliant night sky. Take a train throughout the park to seize the moment that no iPhone or camera can capture well. Yosemite makes family vacations transform into life-long memories to repeat with grandchildren and other generations. For a luxurious stay with no need to rough it, Tenaya Lodge nestled amongst the conifers of the Sierra National Forest, offers a tranquil getaway with all the adventure activities imaginable: rock climbing, nature walks, boat rides, mountain biking, and more. A National Park visit like this is NOT like a Griswold Family Vacation.
