Planning A Family Friendly Vacation


Often when we go on holiday as a family we completely forget what a vacation should be about. It’s not just a chance to relax and escape from the stresses of the modern world. It’s also an opportunity to reconnect as a family, come together, appreciate one another and share some quality time. However, this idea can often get lost when you are traipsing around a busy theme park, rushing to the next plane or perhaps squeezing in some activities that are a tad educational.

Instead, you should simplify your next holiday and head into the outdoors, the great wild with your kids. You won’t be disappointed if you do this and we’ve got some great tips to get started.

Pick A Beauty Spot

You don’t have to travel halfway around the world to find the perfect place to go on vacation. There are plenty of destinations near and around where you live, probably only a few miles from your home. You should have a look online and explore local rural areas around your residence. You might find that there is some stunning forests, gorgeous green hills or beautiful aqua lakes.

Once you realize the potential of this location, you can then look for a place to go camping. You might find that there are a vast number of different places that allow you to set up a tent. Or, you may need to get permission to use private land. It’s always better to check rather than just heading out there and planting your pegs. Although, before you set off on your vacation in the outdoors, you should get the kit.

Buy Your Kit

You’ll definitely need a tent and it should be big enough for your whole family. Don’t forget, there will be days when it pours down and you can’t leave the tent without getting soaked. On days like this, you want to make sure that you have enough space in the tent without everyone feeling over crowded. If you check out a site such as TentsAndCampGear.com, you’ll find that there is a wide range of different options when purchasing your first tent. You might want to think about opting for a deluxe choice if you have never taken the family camping before.

As well as this, you’ll need to make sure you have a portable stove to cook food on. Otherwise, you’re going to be making a lot of trips to the nearest town or city and eating at restaurants. This might not be a bad idea but it can detract from the idea of this type of vacation and make it a lot more expensive.

Plan Activities

Typically, when you go on a vacation for the kids, your activities aren’t planned for you. Hit this theme park, show up at that water park, don’t forget the night show and make sure you take them to that spot. On a vacation like this, there’s no time to catch your breath. Here, things are a little different because instead you can plan activities yourself from fishing to mountain biking. You might even discover that you if head to certain places that are more exciting options on the agenda like family river rafting. Check out some great ideas on NetMums.com.

The bottom line is that if you plan a trip like this for your family you’re going to love how it brings you all together.
