When you hear those words, you probably have memories of childhood family road trips, dividing the back seat with imaginary barriers, playing the license plate game, and climbing over the backseat to get into the hatchback of the station wagon (who needed seat belts before 1985?). Many of us share these vacation experiences from our younger years. When we were young the only thing we really cared about was if the motel where we stayed at had a pool. Our parents made sure we got lots of pictures with roadside attractions, such as concrete dinosaurs and Jolly Green Giant statues. Chances are, you have some of these photos tucked away in your childhood photo albums.
Now, as an adult, you find yourself faced with decisions of how to plan a family vacation for your own family. Questions such as how to keep everyone entertained on the road, and how to incorporate activities that everyone will enjoy need consideration. Not to mention that you would like a little bit of time for yourself so that you don't return home completely exhausted. With a little bit of pre-planning you can rest assured that your entire family will have a great vacation that they will remember for years to come.
