It is almost that time again - summer break!
My children are ready to have a vacation from school! I am looking forward to it too, but I need to have activities to keep my kids busy. They would love to go somewhere new everyday.
Five Summer Getaways Every Kid Should Experience
1. Disney World
For younger children the best park at Disney is Magic Kingdom. We have been there 3 times, and my kids loved it. We have very fond memories of that. Now that my kids are older, we need to check out some of the other Disney parks such as Epcot.
2.The Grand Canyon
It really is a great site to see. I would not recommend taking very small children unless you are sure you can hold them so they don't get near the edge. But for older children it is a wonderful experience.
This is more of a local theme park in Indiana. I remember going there when I was a child when it was called Santa Claus Land. They have expanded to cover more holidays. Now there are sections for Haloween, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, and others in addition to Christmas.
4.Camping and / or fishing
Kids love to be outside. Going camping can be a very inexpensive getaway. My kids love it, but I am not too keen on sleeping on the ground. (Sounds like someone is getting old.) Usually my parents take my kids fishing, and they really enjoy it. They have fun and they learn how to catch their own food.
My favorite place so far was Hawaii. If you ever get a chance to go, take it! But it is expensive to take a family. My kids love any beach where they can swim.
Most of the getaways for kids that I listed can be very inexpensive. If you and your children do most or all five of the listed getaways, your kids will have the best summer ever!
