Vacation Ideas for the Whole Family #ourgoodlifetravel

It’s getting to that time of year where you’re thinking about booking some time away with the kids. However, arranging a vacation that everybody is going to enjoy can be frustrating, not to mention difficult without spending too much money. When you have children, all you’re looking for is something that will entertain them, educate them, and also provide some sort of respite for Mom and Dad. That can’t be too difficult, right? Luckily, it’s not as hard as you might think and to help you out, we’ve come up with a list of easy vacation ideas for the whole family, so check it out!





Camping


Camping is by far, one of the cheapest and most adventurous holidays that you could have with your children. Being at one with nature, snuggling down in your tent at night, and having the freedom to come and go as you please are just some of the perks of going camping with your family. A 5 man tent costs next to nothing in this day and age, and most campsites now have electrical outputs for kettles, portable cookers, and fridges, and even to charge your mobile phones and devices. The best part? Once the kids are asleep it gives you and your partner the perfect chance to sit under the stars with a glass of your favorite wine. There’s something very magical about being out in the wilderness, and it’s definitely something to consider for an easy and affordable holiday.

Vacation clubs

Finding resorts that are able to offer both adult and children entertainment can be quite hard to come by, especially if you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club offer exactly that, for extremely affordable prices. Offering a supervised children’s club, you and your partner could take a child-free day and indulge in tennis, dancing, Spanish lessons, or even dine at one of many restaurants as just the two of you. Or, have fun as a family with a plethora of activities available for everyone to enjoy such as Ocean World. Vacation clubs are great for both fun and educational stays, so it’s definitely worth considering!

Nature stays

If camping isn’t going to suit your family, then why not consider a nature stay? This would involve booking a hotel as normal, but during the day heading out and experiencing natural wonders of our world and the pure beauty that comes with it. Not only will your children learn lots about our planet, but you’ll be able to capture some wonderful shots with incredible backdrops of your family. Bali is a great place to start as it’s cheap and during the summer you can enjoy the beaches and outdoor activities like whitewater rafting, snorkeling, glass bottom boat rides, and rice paddy walks.

Staycation


Finally, if you can’t really afford to go away - then don’t! Grab your favorite snacks, head out to a local hotel and spend a day or two as a family enjoying each other’s company!

  1. We do a lot of staycations since it's hard for my husband to get leave from the military at times. We aren't really a camping family. My daughter is, but the rest of us need real beds. So maybe glamping?

  2. We are headed back up to Alaska to go camping for few weeks with the grandkids and their parents. Grandpa will be teaching them how to fish and grandma is in charge of nature walks and great campfire meals.

  9. Vacation clubs, cruises and all-inclusive resorts are perfect for all members of the family! And glamping, like in the tent cabins (with actual beds) in Yosemite brings back such wonderful memories for my family. Thank you for sharing these great ideas!

  10. I love these ideas! We do a combination of these throughout the year. We have a few camping trips planned this summer already, have some long weekends planned to stay in friends lake houses, and then of course exploring our own area during the week. I like to kick things up a notch and pack in as much fun as I can in the warmer months!

  11. We are usually always up for staycations. Sometimes, with time and budget constraints, it's what our family could do but we always look for fun activities in our city to partake in!
