Traveling with Family – on Hallmark’s ‘Home & Family’

  1. You may want to switch off and unplug – Camping or outdoor based trips like Cherrystone Camping Resort in Chesapeake Bay area (keeps kids busy with array of activities like swimming, crafting, sunset dolphin cruises and more) or Mammoth Mountain (offers hiking, biking, kayaking, zip-lining you name it!) And contrary to popular belief  this doesn’t HAVE to involve a tent – you can rent an RV, trailers or cabin.
  1. You may be on a budget – Take a day trip to the nearest museum, national park or beach (download an app like ‘daytrips’ to your iphone) If you do decide to fly download a flight tracking app like ‘hopper’ which will notify you when flight price go down!
  1. You may not have much time off – weekend getaways on the coast are the way to go – on the west coast anywhere from Santa Barbara down to San Diego, or on the East check out Myrtle Beach in North Carolina which offers the best of both worlds with a amusement parks and arcades located right beside the beach (and it’s also very affordable)
  1. You may need it to appeal to everyone! – There are great all-inclusive resorts in locations like the Paradisus Playa del Carmen in Mexico (with rates as low at $130 a night with food and kids club included) or the The Ranch at Emerald Valley, CO, which has something to do for every age.
