ISIS and Summer Travel for Americans

mexico city Pyramid

You want the kids to experience the pyramids, but travel to the Middle East is still a little scary.  Don’t worry, there are pyramids right here on the North American Continent.   The good news is ISIS doesn’t have to limit your family’s travel experiences.

My job is to publish a high-quality travel blog that features affordable, entertaining, adventurous and educational value.  When I’m not writing children’s book’s I’m looking for affordable travel experiences for families.

Due to the conflict in the Middle East, it’s difficult to travel to Egypt at this time, but not impossible.  Unfortunately, it’s not the best or the safest family vacation destination.

I’m grateful I was able to visit Egypt many years ago.  It was a trip of a lifetime and I encourage all lovers of travel to try and make your way to the Egyptian pyramids at least once in your lifetime.

Staying safe is one of the components of my travel recommendations.  Affordable travel is something that has to be planned for, along with safety, especially when children are involved.

Travel is a part of the American culture.  For example, you want to take the kids to see the pyramids. Instead of visiting the pyramids in Egypt this year, you may opt to visit the pyramids in Mexico and Central America.   It’s all about finding suitable alternatives.

There are over 170 Pyramid sites open to the public throughout Mexico.  Pyramid of the Sun is one of the popular historical sites and is located near Mexico City which is the largest city on the North American continent.

To learn more about tours to the pyramids just outside of Mexico City, Go here. These are affordable tours with a reputable tour company.  Tour prices are around $44 and up.
