For most families, summertime is often thought of as the best time of the year. These fun filled warm days are made even better with trips to the beach, summer camps of all types, ice cream trucks and family vacations. Though lots of parents choose to venture outside of the Untied States with their kids for their long awaited yearly two week vacation, even more decide to stay within the country, instead opting to spend a few days of their vacation time running around one or more of the nation’s top theme parks.
In fact, there are over 400 amusement and theme parks within the US, with each of them differing from the next. Some focus on water fun, some on animals and wildlife and others on themed adventures. And of course you can’t forget about the famed Disney parks that attract hoards of visitors throughout the entire year to both Florida and California.
