Greece really can be a great family destination has it has such variety and is so diverse . You will however need to research your choice of holiday destination and also check out the best times to visit .
Mainland Greece and the Greek Islands can get very hot in the middle of Summer . It may be that if you are traveling with younger children you do not want to holiday when temperatures soar and the holiday makers sizzle . I have been on beaches in Greece when the sand is so hot you cannot bear to even tiptoe across it to the sea without footwear on .
One of the nice things however about Greece is the Greeks as they adore children and you will feel your kids are perfectly safe . Also they make children very welcome in hotels and restaurants . As with everywhere nowadays you will still need to watch over your children as you never know , especially about other tourists .
What you will find in Greece is there are many hotels which cater particularly for families . These often have children’s clubs and additional activities . There are many recently opened water parks where children big and little can have a whale of a time .
Never forget that Greece has a fascinating history and culture . There are a million and one museums , galleries and archaeological sites . There is swimming , scuba diving and snorkeling where you can see wondrous fish and or turtles . Most Greek beaches have glass bottomed boat cruises , banana rides , paragliding and other boat trips .
Wherever you travel to in Greece you will find wonderful scenery where you can walk safely . Decide what sort of family vacation you are looking for and I bet you can find it in Greece .
