Many “family” vacations are actually “kid vacations” – not to say you don’t enjoy Legoland or a Disney Cruise, but you enjoy it because the kids are happy, not because you like being on a boat with a big mouse. So when we found the family vacation where the whole family can participate in and adore every single activity, we were thrilled. Meet your family vacation for the next dozen years or so – The Alisal Guest Ranch. Click through our flipbook to see why it’s our pick for family vacation of the year.
Solvang is a charming Danish town just north of Santa Barbara. 2 1/2 hours north of Los Angeles and 4 1/2 hours south of San Francisco, it's an easy car ride, yet a world away from most parts of California. Once you're in town, turn right on Alisal Road, and follow it right to the Ranch.
Let’s talk vacations–what’s the last true family vacation you went on? Do you think that your kids would love the Alisal Ranch as much as we do? Tell us below!
