Maharashtra offers quintessential opportunities for family vacations where travel time is not too long or strenuous, and everyone can enjoy themselves and find something fun to do. There are many places to visit in Maharashtra—some for peace, others for adventure, and still others for the charm of a typical hill station.
Here are some of Maharashtra’s points of interest in the hills that are perfect to get away from the city life and make the most of the long weekends in 2018.
Located about 84km from Mumbai and 67km from Pune, Lonavala makes for an ideal getaway that’s not too far from home, but still gives the feeling of another world. If your family is adventurous, then come here for trekking, or to explore the Rajmachi Wildlife Sanctuary and Kondane Caves. While you are here, don’t forget to bite into Lonavala’s famous chikki!
This hill station offers the perfect respite from the city’s hustle and bustle because its terrain is filled with verdant mountains and a mesmerizing charm that’s typical of a hilly area. Some activities you can do here, together as a family, include biking, trekking, splashing around in the waterfalls, and exploring Visapur Fort.
If you want a cultural family vacation, head to Saputara, which is about 255km from Mumbai. While here, you can explore real tribal culture (the place is named after the snakes that these people worship), trekking, Vansda National Park, Hatgadh Fort, and Saputara Museum.
