If you still need to pick a place on the map to head this summer, these eight family summer vacation destinations can provide the respite and atmosphere you're looking for.

Do you need a break from Disney or Six Flags? You might consider spending a week in Hershey, Pennsylvania, home of Hershey's chocolate! Are you feeling hungry yet?

Other outdoor activities include rafting, fishing, and going on gondola rides.
