Just a short 6-hour flight from the East Coast, Portugal has everything you need for a European family getaway—rich culture and history, amazing food, beautiful scenery—but without the crowds or high costs of other European capitals, making it a perfect choice to stretch your travel dollars in 2019. Start your trip in easy-to-navigate Lisbon. The city is full of kid-centric attractions, including the expansive Oceanarium, voted TripAdvisor’s top aquarium in the world, filled with everything from sharks to sunfish. Hop on one of the city’s affordable yellow tramcars to traverse the cobblestone streets of the historic quarter and visit São George Castle. For dinner, Bairro de Avillez features a spacious courtyard design, friendly atmosphere, and extensive menu of Portuguese bites. Then hop a train to the coastal town of Cascais, just 30 minutes west. Originally a historic fishing village, today Cascais offers an easy beach getaway with 19th-century charm. Nearby, step into the fairytale UNESCO World Heritage Site Sintra, filled with spectacular castles guaranteed to impress your kids.

Alaska

America’s tallest mountain and meet the sled dogs who work here

It’s Alaska’s 60th anniversary of statehood in 2019, and they’re rolling out the red carpet to celebrate, including new direct flights from Newark to Anchorage—making the 49th State much more accessible. Although cruises may be the most familiar way to explore The Last Frontier, you can actually DIY an Alaska adventure. Base yourself in Anchorage and rent a car to drive south on the Seward Highway. Stop at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center to see native wildlife such as bison, reindeer and brown bears. Continue on to Seward for a day cruise around Kenai Fjords National Park and a stop at the Alaska SeaLife Center for a special encounter with sea otters and puffins. Back in Anchorage, return the car and hop aboard the Alaska Railroad to Denali National Park to explore North America’s tallest mountain and meet the sled dogs who work here.

Let’s face it, if you have a family travel bucket list, taking your kids to see the nation’s greatest natural wonder is definitely on it. So why is 2019 the year to visit? Because Grand Canyon National Park is celebrating its 100th birthday as a national park. The park is rolling out special events to celebrate, but even without them, you can still explore the stunning scenery of the mile-deep crevice by hiking a corridor trail, riding a mule down the Canyon or just enjoying the landscape from an overlook. Another family favorite here: A ride on the Grand Canyon Railway, which combines an unforgettable ride through spectacular surroundings with live music and stories that bring the Old West to life.

Puerto Rico is ready to take center stage again after its recovery from Hurricane Maria; for 2019, the sun-drenched island says the best way to support their revival is to come visit! That should be easy. San Juan is a quick domestic flight from much of the east coast. When you arrive, you’ll get all the excitement of a foreign trip, but with no need to exchange currency, worry about cell phone service or navigate customs, since Puerto Rico is a U.S. Commonwealth. Once here, head to the beaches of San Juan, where you’ll find plenty of sunshine, golden sand and warm azure waves. It’s just a short hop from your hotel to Old Town, where the 18th century El Morro fort is the perfect place to play a real game of pirates with your kids.
