family-vacationBringing the kids on vacation is like switching up the scenery, but with your kids in the forefront, still grabbing all of your attention. To ensure you enjoy your vacation just as much as the kids will, there are a few ‘saving graces’ that you can watch out for, so that you can have fun too (and maybe even be able to relax).

Beachy Busting

The best thing about beaches that are strewn along a foreign coastline is…your kids will be consumed with the novelty of it for hours. They may go shell collecting, be fascinated with the waves, dig themselves into the sand and even get lost for a little while as they allow their imagination kick in (thar be pirates on that there horizon!). For beach safety, make sure that you check ahead of time (the front desk at your accommodation will be able to assist you with information about local sites), about the type of beaches that are around, if there are any you should avoid, etc. Besides the daytime fun that can be had at the beaches (some non-motorized equipment for the kids to play in the water is also at your disposal), you can bring the kids back to the beachside for some stargazing.

Activities with an Advantage

Touristy destinations are usually overflowing with fantastic activities that are strictly geared for kids (there are toddler activities, mid-teen, and teen activities). Everything from sports activities, to lessons through activities (recreational fun that can be taught like snorkelling, boogie boarding, scooter rides, horseback rides, and dancing just to name a few), and there are even live entertainment activities that bring the kids in on the action. Outside of your accommodation, you will be able to locally find an abundance of sights to see, foods to taste, and undoubtedly some historic sights that will be very enticing.

Dapper Daycare

When the little ones are still just too small to be able to cope with the hustle and bustle of sightseeing, there are daycare options within your accommodation that really extend their services to benefit you. Some onsite daycares offer in-room babysitting services, or you can allow your child to interact within the playroom of the daycare with other small kids. Onsite facilities that can entertain the kids are the pools, playparks, and sometimes mini-golf, tennis courts, and basketball courts.

No Strings Attached

The family vacation should not take away from the parental enjoyment; romance is in the air, and you can explore that while the kids are being thoroughly absorbed in numerous activities. Even a quaint boat ride can give parents and other family members a little peace (kayaking or canoeing can also give you and the kids some separation). Hikes, bicycling, strolls through nature…those can all can be achieved when you are vacation. Checking on guided tours are also a big bonus to kids, as more can be seen in a shorter period of time. Load up the kids’ itinerary, then sit back and enjoy the few moments here and there that you will have while they are having the time of their lives!
