Fun Activity Ideas for a Family Vacation

Family vacations are a great way to spend quality time with the people who matter most. If you’re not sure how to fill your time while on your trip, check out these fun activity ideas for a family vacation.

Tour an Art Gallery

Whether your family members are artists or not, touring an art gallery is a great way to spend an afternoon. Taking young kids to an art gallery is a great way to foster a love of art in them. Don’t feel as though you have to wait until your kids are “old enough” to bring them to the art museum.

Many small children, as young as three or four, can behave quietly and respectfully in an art museum. Explain to your kiddos how they should behave while visiting the gallery, and give it a shot—they just might surprise you!

Spend Some Time Outdoors

Spending time in nature has positive effects on the mental health of people of all ages. It’s also a great opportunity to enjoy scenery unlike what you see at home.

Enjoy cool breezes and tall trees during a family picnic in the park. If you’re visiting somewhere with mountains or rolling hills, consider taking a family hike. Just be sure to cater the length and difficulty of your trek to your kids’ ages and athletic abilities.

Plan a Parents-Only Evening

As fun as it is to spend time with your kiddos, it’s also important to invest in one-on-one time with your partner. If your kids are old enough, plan a parent-only evening. Your kids can order room service and play video games or watch movies—they’ll have a blast having the hotel room to themselves.

As for your date night with your partner, there are plenty of great options. Grab drinks at a local bar or try a highly rated steakhouse. If you’re visiting wine country, you can’t miss the local wine tastings. But if wine isn’t your thing, don’t worry. There are plenty of other things to do for non-wine drinkers.

With these fun activity ideas, your next family vacation is sure to be a success.
