For many travelers, 2022 will signal a return to normal as COVID-19 restrictions are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Travel insurance comparison site InsureMyTrip has ranked 10 of the most popular cities in the U.S. for family vacations to determine the best for travelers right now. Researchers looked at a range of factors, including the quality of family hotels and nearby beaches and quantity of family attractions as well as area safety, sea temperature, lowest wave height and weakest ocean current strength. Scores ranged from 3.54 (10th) to 5.5 (first). All 10 destinations are undoubtedly worthwhile trips for vacationing families but these survey results could help break a tie for those still undecided on their next group getaway.

Earning an overall score of just 3.54, Miami surprisingly ranks among the worst of the top U.S. cities for a family getaway. Miami is known for its beautiful beaches and epic nightlife but is hurt by its low scores for area safety and the quality of family hotels.

An iconic summertime vacation destination for families on the East Coast, Coney Island ties the Florida Keys thanks to impressive scores for both quality of family hotels and area safety. Like Ocean City, travelers will have to wait a bit for the ocean to warm up in this Northeast neighborhood.
