Next time you’re dream­ing about jet­ting off on a fam­ily ad­ven­ture, think closer to home! North Amer­ica has so many in­cred­i­ble des­ti­na­tions that will live up to your globe-trot­ting fan­tasies. These five spots are worth the trip.

We all want to show our kids the world. Ta­pas in Madrid. An African sa­fari. The Aus­tralian Out­back. We dream not only of those trips, but of see­ing the joy and ex­cite­ment in our kids’ eyes as they ex­pe­ri­ence a far-off land for the first time. And for those of us who are very lucky, we’ll be able to save up and go on one of these once-in-a-life­time ad­ven­tures with our fam­i­lies. But for the years when you need to stay closer to home, we have good news: North Amer­ica can make you feel like you’re in Europe, Africa, South Amer­ica, or even Aus­tralia. “Why fret?” says Colleen Kelly, host and ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer of the na­tional PBS se­ries Fam­ily Travel with Colleen Kelly. “There are so many awe­some and his­toric places right around here. In­cred­i­ble scenery, fas­ci­nat­ing land­marks, cul­tural di­ver­sity, and fan­tas­tic foods...we re­ally do have it all here in North Amer­ica.” Got a trip on your bucket list? Find a swap—each a fa­vorite of a fam­ily-travel guru—that’s just as amaz­ing.
