Kids are only kids for a short amount of time, so you want their childhood memories to be happy. Ditch the video games, switch off the TV and go on an adventure with your children. There are so many fun activities to do on your summer vacation that are both educational and entertaining, meaning no child needs to be left bored or stuck inside when the sun is shining. It can be a challenge to fill that two-month summer break from school, and it may seem like your kids always need entertaining. However, with these vacation tips, you’re sure to have fun as a whole family. So, if you’re going away for the summer, here’s how to create an action-packed schedule for your vacation.
Local events and festivals
From Mardi Gras to county fairs, there is bound to have something fun happening where you are. Festivals and fairs tend to happen around the summertime and usually involve music, dance, parades, picnics and maybe even fireworks. Historical festivals are also pretty interesting. Each US town or city has their own heritage, and it’s usually celebrated with a free festival for the community. Expect lively historical war reenactments, activity sessions, live performances and more.
Visiting art galleries and museums is also a good call on your summer vacation. Not only will your kids fill their minds with knowledge, but they also get to have lots of fun in the process too. Many US museums usually feature a kids’ section where they can take part in activities such as dressing up in historical costumes or make their own art. Another way for you and your kids to experience culture on your summer vacation is to catch a sports game with the help of Ticket Sales. This could be a great way to bond with your children, and they’re sure to remember it forever. Some of your options include NFL games, NHL tickets, baseball, and basketball – all of which could make the perfect day out during your trip.
In America, it seems like the possibilities for outdoor adventures are endless. Think long walks, building forts out of sticks or riding bikes in a National Park. You can also make a game of gathering different types of leaves, flowers, and bugs, as well as go animal spotting. Make sure you bring a ball or Frisbee on your vacation for hours of fun – especially if you’re staying somewhere with a beach. There are endless possibilities when it comes to your surroundings, so be sure to have as many adventures as possible.
Wherever you choose to stay in the US, you’re sure to find a theme park near you. Cedar Point, for example, is more than just about roller coasters – there are a water park, a petting zoo and a mile-long stretch of sandy beach. If you have younger kids, then Universal’s Islands of Adventure in Florida or Legoland in California could be the perfect choice for a younger family. Let’s not forget about the teenagers! For teenagers, Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay, Florida where you’ll find hair-raising rides such as Montu, Florida’s first inverted roller coaster and the Kumba roller coaster that actually ‘roars’ on the track.
