The sun is out, the kids are out of school, and the temperature is heating up… it’s officially the start of summer.
With two months to enjoy with the family, you have some options for those awesome summer memories. Instead of visiting the same beach as you did last year, why not try something new?
We have some amazing summer getaway ideas the whole family will love. Continue reading to learn more.
Camping isn’t for everyone but with Glamping (glamorous camping) being a popular trend over the last few years; it doesn’t seem like a getaway you want to miss. Get back to nature with your family while still enjoying the luxury of a hotel lifestyle.
Glamping sites usually offer electricity, free Wi-Fi, and furniture in the tent, including a bed! Drift off to the sounds of nature while snuggling in that comfy bed. It sounds much nicer than an RV park or sleeping on the ground.
Most glamping grounds will also have activities and hammocks available to either bond with the family or enjoy some relaxation.
2. Cape Canaveral, Florida
If you want to have an excellent summer getaway but still want your kids to learn something, consider visiting Cape Canaveral, Florida. This affordable location is home to the Kennedy Space Center. If you don’t feel like traveling to the space center, enjoy the Canaveral National Seashore.
Here you can find 24-miles of an undeveloped beach which is home to over 300 bird species and thousands of plants. Opt to tour the area of Port Canaveral and Cocoa Beach with a guided electric bike.
3. Surfing Adventure
Learning to surf as a family is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and one that each member of your family will hold dear to their heart. It’s not every summer a child or parent learns how to surf, so why not make it this one?
Beaches across the United States offer surf camps, some even arranging the accommodations, private lessons, and rentals for the whole family. Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina has 3- and 5-day family surf experiences if you can’t afford to travel to California.
Once you see the smiling face of your child and feel yourself successfully catch your first wave, you’ll know you made the right choice! Don’t know where to go? Travel agents know which beaches are better for surfing, relaxing, and swimming.
4. Old-School Camping
If glamping isn’t your style, why not go old school camping instead? Step away from the electronics and teach your children about the outdoors with cookouts, fishing, hiking, and swimming.
Some campgrounds like Camp Wandawega have a vintage feel, including a rope swing hanging over a lake and rowboats. Choose between a tent, tree houses, or log cabins for your accommodations.
If going away on a family vacation isn’t quite in the budget this year, don’t worry. Staycations are becoming increasingly popular, and there are many activities to do right at home that will make you feel like you’re on vacation.
Make a campground in your own backyard, cook over a campfire all while in the vicinity of your own home.
