Whether you’re looking for a quick getaway or are planning the ultimate family vacation, there are plenty of child-friendly destinations to choose from. According to new studies published in the Journal of Consumer Research, families will benefit from investing in new experiences rather than on toys – which kids will eventually get bored of after a week or two later.
Going on a family vacation removes us from the stress of everyday lives where everyone is focused on their own goals. It provides the perfect opportunity to pack your backpacks, turn off the gadgets, relax, and have fun together. So, if you’re planning your next family trip, check out these top 4 child-friendly destinations to visit in 2018.

Greece has approximately 6,000 islands in total, only 227 of which are inhabited and scattered around the Ionian and Aegean Seas.
