SPECTACULAR SUMMER GETAWAYS FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
Summer is one of my favourite seasons, so I want to ensure you make the most of every moment. I’m sharing a Costa Rican destination with family-friendly experiences because nothing says vacation like surfing and sunshine. And in celebration of Independence Day next month, I’ve been eyeing some bucket-list worthy firework shows to keep on your family’s travel radar this year, in 2024 and beyond.
To your next family getaway,

FAMILY FUN IN COSTA RICA: DISCOVER ‘PURA VIDA’ WITH FOUR SEASONS
Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo has endless activities for you and your family to experience. Children ages 4 to 12 can immerse themselves in nature as part of the Kids For All Seasons program, or explore as a family with a Papagayo Explorers excursion. As you hike, swim and play, be on the lookout for howler monkeys, iguanas, hermit crabs, military macaws and mangrove cuckoos. A sanctuary just for teens is hosted by a dedicated concierge to help them choose from the numerous activities available. Kids can also take lessons at the resort’s surf school, SurfX, and learn to ride the waves like a pro. Which activity speaks to you and your family?
THE BEST FIREWORKS DISPLAYS TO ILLUMINATE YOUR FAMILY’S SUMMER GETAWAY
With stunning shows, live music and the summer foods we all love, Independence Day trips go off with a bang. Here are three incredible fireworks displays I know you and your loved ones will remember for a lifetime.
BOSTON POPS CONCERT FIREWORKS
In 2024, the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular will mark its 50th year as one of the nation’s proudest holiday traditions. The historic Massachusetts tradition is a musical celebration at the DCR Hatch Shell on the Esplanade.
WAWA WELCOME AMERICA FESTIVAL
Celebrate America’s birthday with a stunning fireworks display over the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The largest July 4th celebration in the nation, this festival offers sixteen days filled with family-friendly experiences right in the heart of the nation’s birthplace.
FOURTH OF JULY CELEBRATION
San Francisco’s annual July 4th celebration takes place along the northern waterfront; ask me about arranging a special cruise or waterfront reservation for the best views. The city sets off the incredible display from the end of Municipal Pier and barges in front of Pier 39.
