The Best Adventure Trips for Families

Sometimes a family vacation is more than roller coasters, magical kingdoms and cartoon characters


Planning a trip for the whole family is a tricky business. The only thing that is better than experiencing amazing sights, seeing natural wonders and engaging in unforgettable activities is doing all of those with the people closest to you. But how do you create an itinerary that everyone will love?[slideshow:102211]

Research show that people are looking for something different when it comes to adventures. They don’t want to just go to a far-flung location; they want to explore and learn about native cultures. Many don’t want to feel like regular tourists; they want to know how locals live and be like them for a while.

One-on-one time with your kids is great, but spending time together as a family is even better. Bonding gives you the opportunity to create new memories and share new experiences with one another.

If your family is the adventurous type, go on a vacation getaway that will keep you active, entertained, and happy. Some of them are going on a train expedition, camping overnight in a national park, signing up for a week-long cycling tour, and staying at an old-school ranch.
