    Winterberries frame the dome of the Capitol in Washington, D.C

The world might be shrinking, but the opportunities to push our travel boundaries remain. Here are three ideas to consider for the family in 2016.

Utah’s Wasatch Mountain Range: This mountain mecca, known for perfect skiing days, stellar hiking and biking, fly-fishing and Robert Redford’s film festival, continues to provide fresh reasons to visit. A plethora of new hotels, restaurants and outdoor adventures, plus the ability to use your Vail Resorts Epic Pass (thanks to the recent purchase of Park City and Canyonland Resorts), all contribute to an energetic vibe that can elevate your family’s mountain getaway.


Nashville, Tenn.: Music-loving families can travel to the center of the country music universe and explore its origins. Tap into the latest sights and sounds from Tennessee’s capital city. Check out the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Grand Ole Opry, the Johnny Cash museum and the legendary Ryman Auditorium.

Change it up with a stop at the Adventure Science Center. Always family- and pet-friendly, the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel offers packages to help take full advantage of your stay.


Washington, D.C. There is no better way to provide an educational backdrop for an American election year than to embark on the ultimate show-and-tell experience: the U.S. Capitol. To arrange a tour, check with your congressional representatives. Visit the Supreme Court. Pose for selfies in front of the White House and wonder about who will be moving in next.

Discuss what the upcoming elections might mean for your family.
