Check out popular spots for family vacations, and enter to win a trip to Florida

Vrbo Family Travel Expert Melanie Fish shares top up-and-coming destinations you should consider for your next getaway.

It’s time to talk travel. Vrbo’s Melanie Fish is here to share the top up-and-coming destinations you should consider for a family getaway.

Melanie starts by saying that we all love Florida beaches and ski trips to Colorado, but Vrbo’s 2020 trend report points out some places that maybe aren’t on your list that should be!

First, take a look at Bella Vista, Arkansas. It has shown a big jump in the number of families renting vacation homes. There are a lot of outdoor adventures to be had there, golfing, lakeside homes, and more. Bentonville, Arkansas right down the road is also home to the world class art museum Crystal Bridges.

Spring is on the horizon, but now is the time to book your summer vacation. Vrbo's Family Travel Expert Melanie Fish is here with tips and inspiration to begin planning. The best time to plan your family's summer vacation is right now!

Second, you could visit the heart of the North Georgia mountains, Cherry Log Georgia. One of the biggest attractions in the area is Fall Branch Falls, a great hike for families.

Finally, for a family rental vacation home consider Edisto Island, South Carolina. It is between Hilton Head and Kiawah, and no hotels are allowed.

For some, however, the trip to Florida is a family tradition. So, Vrbo is giving away a trip to Panama City Beach! This trip is a $5,000 getaway for your family. You can enter at vrbo.com/win or find out more at ksdk.com/contests.
