When planning a family trip with your teenagers, there are some ideas that are sure to please. These 10 ideas make great vacations that your teen will be sure to enjoy.

Ah, teenagers. One workaround is to offer them a shortlist of ideas to choose from — at the very least, it might prod them to volunteer a few of their own. Those of us on the CB staff with teens have given you a head start by polling our kids about their bucket-list destinations. While their answers are as different as their personalities, a few common themes cropped up: exotic locales; high-adrenaline adventure; jawdropping scenery; beach downtime. I have always wanted to visit Banff, Alberta. This is one of those places that is as scenic in the summer as it is in the winter, which makes it a great vacation no matter the season.

Two-thirds of leisure travelers plan to take vacations this summer, according to AAA Travel, with good reason. Summer is the traditional time for families to reconnect. Parents and grandparents strive to recreate favorite childhood memories and make new ones together with the youngest generation. Each year, we present 51 great summer vacation ideas in collaboration with our partners at TakingtheKids. We also invite teens to blog about their travel experiences in the 13th annual Teen Travel Writing Scholarship.
