How to Plan a Summer Family Road Trip
A summer road trip with the family is a timeless way to make memories and break up those lazy summer days. Plus, this type of vacation offers unique opportunities for kids to get out, explore, play, and learn. They will see (and help) you prioritize and plan, as well as learn the value in getting out of one’s comfort zone and experiencing new things … even if those things are just a short distance away!
A family road trip is good for everyone. While it does take some time to plan and prepare for the trip upfront, it’s all worth it when you’re having fun and rediscovering each other outside of the daily grind.
One of the best things about road trips is that they are scalable — they don’t have to be complicated or expensive – the trip could last a day or a weekend. You can stay at a hotel or campground, or simply leave early in the morning and return later that night. There are no rules to a successful road trip, and each family can do it their way.
