The beauty of a vacation means something different to everyone. Some families will jet off to a quite beach and enjoy uninterrupted bliss in the sunshine, while other families will head to the countryside, visiting family and catching up with old friends. But neither is wrong. Because vacations really are what you make them. But when you’re a family that loves to get outside and take a taste of the wild life, an adventure vacation could be exactly what you’re looking for. If you’re not sure what kind you want to head on this year, here are a few options to inspire you.
First of all, you may want to consider going camping with your family for your next vacation. When you love to be outside, and you’re keen on going on adventures, then camping should always be at the top of your list. Camping with kids can be a lot of fun. You can head out into nature, go on hikes, cook campfire food and even play a bunch of different games too. With camping, you can make your experience as adventurous or as tame as you want it to be.
If your family has a love of the water, then you’re definitely going to want to consider going to a lakeside resort. With the choice of huge parks or more serene spots, you can definitely customize your vacation to your needs. Heading out to have fun with watersports, enjoying peace and quiet by the lake, and even heading out to fish can be a lot of fun for the entire family.
When you’ve got a huge sense of adventure, you may find that you go camping and head to the lake a lot. So, if you want to switch things up, why not think about going on a winter adventure this year? There are so many ski resorts around the country and internationally that it’s something you could easily do. Heading out on the slopes, snowboarding, and even enjoying the social side of things can be great for a family that wants a good balance of both.
If you find that everyone has a lot of different ideas about what they want to do, or where they want to go, why not turn your vacation into a road trip? You can camp out, stop by the lake and even ski if it’s on your route. So pack up your Thule rack with everything you need for the water and the snow. You could even take your bikes! Then, you can be sure to indulge in a lot of different mini adventures under one big vacation umbrella.
Or maybe this year is the year that you’re going to do something different. You want something big and fun and exciting. So, an African adventure may await you, with a safari style experience thrown in. And if you’re not looking to head overseas right now, you may want to see if you can recreate a similar safari experience with a bit of wilderness survival instead. That way, you can combine your sense of adventure and camping skills and see where it takes you.
