family-vacations

“A family that prays together stays together.” That’s a common saying among tight-knit families. Overtime, I’ve read many versions of this saying. Some people would replace the word “pray” with “eat” or sometimes, they’d replace it with “spend time”. Today, I will present to you another rendition of this saying. And mine goes: “A family that vacations together stays together.” Why do I say this, you ask? Well, that’s because I believe that when a family experiences memorable things together, they tend to associate it with their familial bond.

Top 5 Family Vacation Ideas

“A family that prays together stays together.”

That’s a common saying among tight-knit families. Overtime, I’ve read many versions of this saying. Some people would replace the word “pray” with “eat” or sometimes, they’d replace it with “spend time”. Today, I will present to you another rendition of this saying. And mine goes:

“A family that vacations together stays together.” 

Why do I say this, you ask? Well, that’s because I believe that when a family experiences memorable things together, they tend to associate it with their familial bond. Even if they enjoyed only a certain activity and not exactly the company of another family member, they will forever associate the person who’s with them at the time whenever they think back on the event in the future – especially children. Thoughts like “My sister and I had so much fun skiing” or “My Dad used to take me to exciting fishing trips” are subtly yet convincingly forming in the person’s mind. This makes vacation time very important for every family – including yours. 

Sadly, vacations seem to be an infrequent family activity nowadays – for reasons I can most likely guess. Some families would pass up the chance to go on a holiday because of members’ individual priorities. Teens have dates and parties; parents need to go work overtime for the extra cash. Then, there’s also the issue on money – spending money, to be exact. Why go vacationing when you’ve got bills to pay and groceries to buy, right? Lastly, there’s the unpopular opinion that “vacations are a waste of time.” Instead of dilly-dallying all day, a person can do 101 other things and be more useful.

I beg to differ.

Vacations aren’t causeless. They’re important family moments that won’t come around the second time. Each vacation is a unique one with its own set of laughs, stories, and dramas to tell. Even as time goes by, each of these getaways will become precious memories to remind us of home. So if you think that’s causeless, then I really doubt the existence of your heart. As they say, you can always earn more money but you can never buy back time.

Always make every second count.

If you’re ready to take your family to a one-of-a-kind vacation on the next chance you’ve got, then we have the perfect getaway suggestions for you. Each of these destinations holds something special, something that will make your time worthwhile. To top it off, I made sure that they won’t be going over your vacation fund as well! Are you ready to check them out? Here we go!

All Year Winter

Even if it’s spring or summer now, you know that in other parts of the world it’s still winter right? Some places even have never ending winters. Places like Alaska and Hokkaido (in Japan) experience cold winter weather almost all year round. So if your family is one that likes a nice freezing experience, why not travel to one of these places on your next holiday? We’re pretty sure the kids would love it!

There are a ton of things you can do on trips like this. You can take the kids skiing or snowboarding, or maybe do something as simple as creating a giant snowman. In the evening, you can huddle up together in front of a hearth and sing fine tunes. Vacation time should be a special time for the family so make sure that you get less busy touring and more involved with family bonding moments!

Looking For Some Time With The Sun, Sand, & Waves? Try Hawaii!

If you’re not too good with cold climates, then how about you try tropical ones? Tropical islands hold a lot of nature and wonder; things you and your family would definitely appreciate to experience! With all that being said, might we suggest the splendid island of Hawaii as your next vacation stop?

The island of Hawaii (or should I say islands?) is a place of wonder, adventure, and tradition. The local myths and legends about their spiritual history as well as their beliefs in many supernatural beings have astounded many listening ears. Every island would have a story of its own; every mountain would have spiritual history. You can even say that the air itself is different in Hawaii. Not because it’s hot or humid (which is characteristic of almost all tropical countries) but because of its mystic atmosphere. Hawaii is a unique experience children of young and old will definitely enjoy.

Best of all, Hawaii is world-famous for its gorgeous beaches and gigantic waves. Surfers all around the world would travel to these eastern lands just to have the ride of their life. Almost every local can surf and even offers to teach tourists a wave trick or two. If you fancy surfing or at least want to experience it, then why not take your family out for some tropical fun?

Safari Trips Sound Fun, Don’t You Think?

Zoo trips are so last year, why not try going for a Safari trip instead? Imagine taking your family to one of the best kept reserves in South Africa. There, you can see roaming wild animals in the flesh! Think of the sight of a really tall giraffe, a humongous elephant, and the King of the Jungle himself – The Lion! The kids are definitely going to flip over the various activities they can try in Safari theme parks.

If you want to get back in sync with nature and touch your inner wild, then this vacation idea will suit you perfectly. Trying the local cuisine should be fun too! So why not pack your bags and schedule the next trip to Africa? Don’t forget to bring sunscreen!
