Taking a trip with your family will not only be a good bonding experience but a good learning experience as well. You don’t need to spend a fortune or go very far to make it fun, and there are plenty of options to choose from if you’re wondering where to take your child or your whole family.
Here are 5 fun bucket list trips to take with your kids:
Seeing beautiful nature attractions, enjoying s’mores around a campfire and sleeping under the stars – every kid should experience tent camping at least once! Everyone gets a good learning experience when they spend time outdoors, especially children. Book a good campsite in a National or State Park and choose one complete with amenities and kid-friendly activities to start!
It would be ideal if you practice camping at your backyard first to get the kids more excited!
Visit a dude ranch
Another great place to visit to encourage spending time outdoors is a good old dude ranch. No child could resist riding horses and playing in lush, green fields. Here you can also enjoy chuck wagon dinners, fishing, cattle drives, horse care lessons and kids’ rodeos!
Catch a movie at a drive-in theatre
Give the children a new fun experience seeing a movie by watching it at a drive-in theatre! Prepare their favorite snacks and drinks and have a good family picnic while watching. With fresh air, yummy food and your company, the kids will surely have a grand time!
Go on a rafting adventure
If your kids love the water, rafting is something they will surely enjoy. Sounds dangerous? Not really – there are packages specifically for families and kids (as young as 6 years old), whether you’re looking for an easy float or a ride with a little more adventure. Places that offer rafting also offer other fun activities such as fishing, treetop canopy tours, ziplines, hiking and even rock climbing, so be sure to check those out to maximize the trip!
Every kid dreams about going to Disneyland. You may have to save a little money to go on a family trip to Walt Disney World, but it will be worth it once you see the smile on their faces. Be sure to embrace the magic at each of the four parks! Disneyland, after all, isn’t called the “happiest place on earth” for nothing!
