In a tight economy, you cannot help but penny-pinch. Often considered as a luxury, traveling on vacation can put a big dent on your budget, especially if you have your family in tow. Fortunately, you can save while traveling by choosing all-inclusive family vacations. Choose a package that will allow you to have the most fun without breaking the bank.
Atlantis Resort And Casino
You can explore Atlantis both above and under water with your family. The Atlantis Resort has two main locations; one is at the Bahamas and the other in Dubai. It recreates the lost civilization with exhibit lagoons, plenty of underwater animals that include sharks, turtles, dolphins and stingrays. The resort’s 20,000 guest rooms are located in three buildings–Royal Towers, The Cove Atlantis and The Reef Atlantis. Approximately 38 restaurants are on site, which serve international cuisines, such as Italian, French, Chinese, Japanese, Southwestern, traditional and steakhouse.
Swim in miles of beaches and 11 pools on site. Try the famous Aquaventure where you can try the slide of your life–the Mayan Temple’s Leap of Faith that has a 60-foot drop that features a tunnel submerged in a shark-infested lagoon. Have fun under the sea in Dolphin Cay. Kids of all ages can enjoy fun activities offered through the Atlantis Kids Adventures, which include rooms that cater to games, performances, culinary, computers, Lego constructions, wizardology, arts and crafts.
