Nothing is more fun than bringing the whole family together on a fun family vacation. A road trip is a great way to celebrate summer’s arrival. The classic way to bond with your crew is by taking a road trip. It’s a great way to get everyone together for a week. However, planning is important because the destination will provide the fun. It’s true that getting there is only half the fun. These are the top 10 things to remember when you embark on your family adventure.
1. Keep the kids entertained by packing fun car games
To keep boredom at bay, you should have a variety of fun and entertaining games for your car. You won’t have to hear another “Are you there yet?” From your little ones in the backseat. Mad Libs and I Spy are some of the games you can play on family fun trips.
2. Take some tasty snacks with you on the road
You don’t have to rely on convenience stores along the roads for your snack needs. Preparing snacks for your family is a great way of keeping any stomachs from rumbling. You would rather give your family healthy cut vegetables, sandwich squares, juice, and hot dogs than sugary sodas or questionable hot dogs at a gas station.
3. Book a great hotel
Book your hotel carefully to ensure your family’s fun trip goes more smoothly than a jar full of Jiffy. Make sure your hotel offers something for everyone, including breakfasts, cable and other great goodies.
4. Take a trip on an adventure tour
Avoid boring tours and choose tours that provide a memorable experience such as ghost tours, dollhouse museums or safari rides at a wildlife center.
5. Do your research
Make sure to make a list of the things you want to do and see before you go.
6. Get a camera
Cameras can sometimes get lost in the excitement of a trip. Make sure you don’t miss any special moments on your family vacation by packing your camera, charger and spare battery.
7. Get some fresh air
Don’t forget to include a few outdoor adventures in your day plan to allow the kids to play and run and get some sun.
8. Take a look at these cheesy landmarks
There are many cheesy landmarks in every city. Take a photo of each one.
9. Take a little time
Make a day just for the kids. Perhaps you decide to take your kids to a train museum they will love.
10. Take some time to be grown up
You should also make sure to include some grown-up time. Be sure to include some fun for the grown-ups, whether it’s a dinner with wine and antiquing.
