3 Tips for a Hassle-Free Family Vacation

3 Tips for a Hassle-Free Family Vacation Where is your family going on Spring Break vacation? A popular amusement park like Walt Disney World or Universal Studios, a trip to a local beach, or a getaway to the Colorado Mountains? Wherever your clan chooses to go, it’s all about having fun as a family! In order to do that, you must first cover the basics.

Here are 3 tips on how to keep everyone in a good mood for your Spring Break vacation!

Get everyone in agreement on the destination.  Easier said than done, we know. But if you can’t get everyone to agree on where to go on Spring Break, then you’re setting yourself up for disaster. Save yourself some trouble and give each family member a say in where you’ll vacation. You’ll thank yourself later.

Entertainment for the road. If you’ve ever taken your child on road trips lasting longer than 5 minutes, you know the first sign of trouble is the question “Are we there yet?” Don’t let the kids get bored or you’ll be hearing this question the whole way there. Plan ahead and bring some games that you can play as a family. Some of the more traditional games you could play include I Spy, Bingo, or the License Plate game where you try to spot tags from all 50 states.  A bubble gum blowing contest or road trip scavenger hunt are also fun ideas to keep the kids busy.

Keep snacks on hand. Most importantly, don’t let the kids go hungry. Not only will you spend your hard earned vacation dollars on fast food, but you’ll arrive late to your destination because of all the stops. Try making Moore’s Potato Chips before you hit the road. Just add enough Moore’s Original Marinade to cover your potato or tortilla chips and microwave for 10 seconds.  Moore’s Monster Mix is also a great road trip snack option for the kids.

A happy family vacation begins with agreement on the destination and a fun car ride there on a full belly. Wherever the road takes your family this Spring Break, just make sure that you enjoy the time your family is able to spend together.
