The 9 Best Family Travel Adventures | During Fall & After The Holidays



Domestic family life is all well and good, but is there anything better than setting off on an adventure with all your loved ones by your side? We don’t think so. You’re enjoying yourself on an individual level, but also enjoy seeing your family having a good time, too. And then there’s the added benefit of strengthening those family bond. If you’re looking for inspiration when it comes to what you should do for your next family getaway, have a read below, where I'm outlining a number of the most fun adventures that a family can have. Be warned, though - by the time you finish reading this article you’ll be ready to go on vacation!





A Week at the Beach

The classics are always the best. An underrated aspect of taking a week-long beach vacation is that everyone wins. Parents get to spend their days recovering from the stress and strain from work, while the kids get to play in the sand and the water. It’s a calm life, for the most part - there’s always space to go on a long coast walk, or explore the local attractions. Take this type of trip, and everyone will return home blissed out - and maybe just a little tanned, depending where you go.

Theme Park Fun

Oh my, theme parks. They’ve come a long way. Just when you think they can’t get any better, they pull something out of the bag that makes the most magical place on earth even more magical. And of course, theme parks are not just for kids, not in the slightest, though parents will need to let their inner child out for a few days. All in all, it’s a special way to spend your vacation time with your family. Even if it’s not necessarily the first thing you’d do if you went on vacation alone, the faces of your kids will make it all worthwhile. 

Small Town USA

There’s many a popular family-friendly destination in the states - like the theme parks mentioned above - but there’s also a lot small-town tourist spots that are just as, if not more, fun than the big guys. There are normally fewer people, for starters, and everything’s a bit cheaper. There’s also something inherently enjoyable about the more eccentric parts of America. The car-less, horse-drawn Mackinac Island, for instance, is a big hit with families, in part because there are no cars, and kids can roam free. 

Camping under the Stars

Urban areas are well and good, but there’s something about the great outdoors that is just made for family adventure. It’s less stressful, perhaps. Or it could be that you know the kids are going to have a good time, and won’t need entertaining - in nature, they’ll entertain themselves. The next time you’re planning a family getaway, consider camping somewhere #picturesque. It’ll be a simple life of exploring in the #outdoors, eating easy meals, and being together around the campfire. If you know any children-friendly ghost stories, this will be the time to bust them out. 

Your Own Accommodation

But what if you don’t like camping, as is the case with some parents, and even some children? That doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t spend time in the outdoors. Invest in a travel trailer like the Rockwood 2507s, and you’ll be able to venture off into more rural areas knowing that your family has a bed for the night. The beauty of owning this type of accommodation is that you’ll never be too far away from an adventure. You’ll just need to pack up the supplies, have a vague destination, and then set out. You and your family will love, as it allows you to create your own adventure; you can go wherever you please. 

Overseas Travel

Sure, traveling internally within the United States is fun - it’s a big and varied country, after all - can it doesn’t compare to the excitement of traveling to a new country. When that happens, everyone is equally clueless - the parents don’t know how things work, and of course, the kids don’t either. This means everyone’s buzzed and excited for what lies up ahead. If you’ve never taken an international trip, begin with countries that speak English, such as the UK - don’t worry, the queuing system will give you your dose of confusion - and then progress up to countries that speak a different language. 





Exploring the Local Area

You think you know your local area, but in reality, you probably only know one side of it. If you live in a city, there will be many other things to do and see that you’ve never even considered before. If you live in a rural area, there’ll be attractions with an easy driving distance that you’ve never visited before. So grab the kids, and get discovering. It’s always fun learning about your local area, but especially when your family is by your side. And the thing about this is that you don’t need vacation time to begin exploring. It’s all achievable within a weekend! 


Adventure Activities

Now, you’ll always have fun if everyone’s ready for an adventure, and you’ve traveling somewhere exciting. But it’s also fun to know that when you arrive at a destination, there are activities there that’ll guarantee everyone will have a memorable time. So for your next trip, why not consider going on an adventure vacation? Skiing, or mountain biking, or anything else that gets the adrenaline pumping will be a hit with everyone in your traveling clan. 


Visiting Relatives

You’re #traveling with your family, now how about adding some more family members into the mix? If your relatives live somewhere that’s worth visiting, then go see them. You’ll have an exciting trip ahead, and your kids will be excited about seeing their cool auntie or uncle. Perfect! 


Final Thoughts

You could go for a walk in the local woods and have fun with your #family. So imagine how good a long #vacation will be? Get planning now, and you’ll be on the road to creating life-long memories. 

I cannot wait to start planning small weekend getaways or even bigger ones during and after the holidays, hopefully these small yet quaint ideas inspire you.
