Summer is coming to a close soon but don’t worry, you can still make a getaway with your family! Embassy Suites is located across the nation and ready to host you for a wonderful family vacay.

May I suggest my top location picks for each time zone?

Pacific: Nothing says summer like the ocean so head to San Diego, California for your last little summer trip! While in San Diego, you can take the kids to the World Famous San Diego Zoo, walk on the USS Midway (not only did they tape American Idol try outs there last season, it’s a really cool history lesson that the kids will enjoy learning!) and for lunch and souvenir shopping, hit up Seaport Village! The kids will love playing in the ocean or splashing in the hotel’s indoor pool!

Mountain: Scottsdale is just gorgeous. I’ve always said if I were to move back to Arizona (I grew up south of Tucson and my parents now live in the east part of the state), I’d move to Scottsdale. Yes, it gets hot in the summer but it just so beautiful. Known for it’s many luxurious golf courses, I’d say this is a destination the golfers in your family will love! All others, stay poolside! Young children will love the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park and art lovers will enjoy Old Town Scottsdale.

Central: Chicago is a must-do for everyone. The city is beautiful with it’s amazing architecture and lakeside presence.  It has many attractions like Sears Tower, the Navy Pier, Magnificent Mile (wonderful shopping, including the American Girl Place for your daughter!), and dining like no other place! Don’t forget to try Chicago style pizza while there!

Eastern:  Hampton, Virginia is a great east coast destination with so much history and culture!  You can spend days hitting up places like Casemate Museum at Fort Monroe, Charles H. Taylor Arts Center, Hampton University and the highlight, the Virginia Air and Space Center! After a long day of culture, return to Embassy Suites for a cocktail at the hotel bar!
