Vacations with the family are far different these days. You need to go somewhere where the kids will have as good a time as you. To inspire your family vacays for 2015, here are 11 of the best events for families from coast to coast.
Mardi Gras celebrations are a non-stop party from Feb. 13- 17.
The annual gathering may revel in debauchery, with drunken throngs and questionable behavior performed in order to get a strand of plastic beads. Despite all that, it’s an awesome event for the kid set. It’s recommended that families avoid the French Quarter and line up along St. Charles Ave. during the parades. Kids catch oodles of toys, stuffed animals, and the iconic Mardi Gras beads. There is also a special Family Gras 2015 festival February 6 to the 8.
