Lionhead Natural Water Slides & Family Hike

You can often find an interesting family adventure just around the corner! We had a blast sliding down the Lionhead natural water slides in North Idaho. The hike to the slippery rock slides is a great outing for families of all ages. This destination is located near Priest Lake and Lionhead Campground. My husband Andy and I took our kids ages 8, 5 and 4 on this forested 2-mile hike along Lion’s Head Creek. We really enjoyed sliding down the natural water slides at the end of the trail.

Seattle Museum of Flight Family Visit

Seattle Museum of Flight Family Visit

Rainy days are perfect for going to a museum and learning about history. Our recent trip to Washington took us to the Seattle Museum of Flight where we learned about the history of aviation and saw lots of airplanes. My kids enjoyed sitting in fighter jet cockpits and wandering through the spacious airplane exhibits. I enjoyed learning about some of the details of World War I and World War II and looking at historical photographs. A family could easily spend an entire day at the Seattle Museum of Flight, get lunch at the cafe and watch one of the IMAX presentations. The Museum of Flight is a great Pacific Northwest family trip destination.
