Find a Convenient Place to Stay

Where you choose to stay matters more than you think. If your accommodations are too far from many of the planned events on your itinerary, you will end up spending far too much time traveling between the hotel and your destinations. The logistics may become difficult later in the day if you have chosen not to rent a car, thus requiring you to stay close to the hotel and miss out on the experiences that travel affords you.


It is always best to book a hotel that is either centrally located and within easy walking or driving distance or within a reasonable proximity to public transportation. This way, you can engage with your destination. To find a great hotel, look for one with all of the amenities you need and want. Learn more about availability at your destination to get exactly the right room.


Pack Well

When it comes time to pack your suitcase, take note that overpacking is a common problem for many people. Consider your destination when deciding on what to bring. This is especially pertinent in regard to your wardrobe. If the climate is warm or cold, select clothing accordingly. In addition, you should check the weather forecast to determine if there will be any unusual fluctuations in temperature during your visit. Add the destination city to the weather app on your smartphone for easy access to the local weather.

Keep the Kids Busy

Just because you have children does not mean you have to forgo travel. Make the whole process an adventure. Instead of expecting travel with kids to be an effort, make an effort to make it fun. 


Pack a small bag of fun items to bring out at specific intervals during the travels or when on an outing at your destination. Pay attention to when your kids begin to get antsy and change their mood with a small surprise. Make it something useful, such as a little flashlight, mini deck of cards, or handheld fan.


Alternatively, play games with your kids to keep them busy, entertained, and proactively occupied while on vacation. Regardless of their ages, simple games like I Spy, word games, and creating fictitious stories together will keep everyone engaged while offering up a few laughs.
