You long for it many months out of the year, but when it comes to planning your yearly vacation you sometimes balk at coming up with an idea of what you’re going to do on that vacation. Where will you go? What’s the itinerary?
Then, if you have kids, you need to decide if they are going with you or staying and grandma’s while you and your significant other vacation romantically, or you go alone if you’re a single parent. There are many decisions, but sometimes the way to make up your mind is to decide what exactly you want to do while you’re on that vacation.
Visit A Resort
If you want to relax, but also want to have luxurious options that you can pick from, a resort may be for you. There are different options when it comes to staying at a resort. If you vacation in the summer you may want to stay somewhere with a beach, a huge pool, or even a water park. If you’re taking a winter vacation you may be interested in a stay at a ski resort.
Go On A Cruise
If you want to travel farther than just a resort, but still be able to enjoy a pool and maybe even some golf or tennis, you might want to consider going on a cruise. Most cruises are an adult only thing, so make sure you look into your choices in cruise lines if you’re thinking about taking the kids along. Be prepared for motion sickness if you’ve never been on a cruise, or on a boat for that matter.
Visit Another Country
If you’re feeling really adventurous, you may want to consider visiting another country for your vacation. Maybe you’ve always dreamed of seeing the outback in Australia, or maybe you want to learn more about your heritage by traveling through the UK. There are many options and many things you can do on this kind of vacation. Go backpacking through Italian wine country or go learn about Japanese culture.
Go For Rural
If you want to stay closer to home, and maybe learn a few things on your vacation (or take an educational vacation for the kids, you could do something unique like stay on a farm. You and the kids could learn how to plant crops, milk cows, and so much more. Both fun and educational, and still a vacation from everyday life.
You could do a smaller vacation, like a weekend horseback riding. Rural vacations can be fun, and they can keep you close to home so you spend less money.
Try A Staycation
Speaking of staying close to home, if you don’t have a lot to spend on vacation, or you just aren’t in the mood for much traveling, you could try a staycation. Come up with craft projects for the kids, visit the local museum, go to your local park or beach for a picnic and some fun in the sun.
