Have you got your long awaited holiday? Waiting to set off on a vacation with the rest of your family? Well, there are so many beaches, heritage sites, adventurous parks and many other spectacular locations out there in the world that are waiting for you. But not all these sites will kindle interest in you and you might find some of these sites a little out of your budget and capacity. The first thing to make a trip successful and memorable is to plan it well. Being spontaneous is also fun and exciting. Yet a family trip that includes kids and elderly requires a lot planning and there are safety measures to think of as well. Therefore here are a few important points to remember and a few suggestions of destinations that will be very much helpful for you to plan your family vacation.
The first step is to brain storm for a place to visit. Think of the interests of your family as a whole. Do they want to visit new places, relax on the beach or have a small barbeque near a lake? For example if you choose to have a beach vacation, the next step is to decide whether you intend to travel abroad or visit a local beach. Traveling would be expensive yet it will be a brand new and a memorable experience for the kids. Lopes Mendes beach- Brazil, Barnes Bay- Anguilla, Waipio Valley beach- Hawaii, accommodation 1770 Agnes Waters – QLD, Australia and El Nido beach in Philippines are a few suggestions for beautiful and safe beach sites of the world. Once the location is fixed you need to define your budget. List down all the costs including transportation, accommodation, food, entertainment and remember to keep an extra portion for emergency purposes
The next step is to plan all the necessary logistics. Purchase your airline tickets at least a month prior to the set date. Don’t wait until the last moment as it will only be a burden. Book your hotel rooms well in advance as well. Have a clear idea about the food and other services offered by the hotel. Do not book the first place that you come across. Do some research about the prices and check the reviews as well. Luxury hotels or resorts, for example, accommodation 1770 Agnes Waters will provide a total package of food and lodging and several other extra activities as well. These details need to be well checked.
Think of your mode of transportation. Even if you reach the destination by airplane, how will you arrange transportation thereafter? Hiring a vehicle or hotel transportation? Make sure you bond very well with your family. Create some lovely memories of a hike, a boat ride or a road trip. Group yourselves for different activities. Let the boys play a football game while the ladies have a round of shopping. Be spontaneous. Don’t plan the activities too much. Let the kids enjoy themselves and do some off the schedule activities as well.

Not just trips but explore the wilderness
Adventure tours are great for the summer. So, if you are planning to take your family out choose a remote country side location which brings out the country’s rural and natural side. Now, if you are heading to Australia, Queensland is that ideal state for you packed with lovely beaches and summer locations for you. You can book a hotel for your stay and let the vacation begin.
Places like Fraser Island and Cape York are very famous for these adventure Cape York . This is one simple example but if you are in any part of the world every country has its little mysteries waiting to be explored by you. So, instead of just going on a day out you can plan one like this to have a look at different animals, places, beaches and waterfalls. These natural beauties aren’t just there but they are waiting to give you that peace of mind and break away feeling from all the hustle and bustle.
Have outdoor parties
On a beautiful sunny day it’s a crime if you try to have your party indoors. Celebrate your special days and family gatherings in your garden and you don’t get that chance everyday do you? Throw a BBQ and a cool spot to offer your guests chilled drinks for the hot weather. You can decorate your deck the way you want and matching your garden flower’s colors and the seasonal colors like bright red, yellow, orange and brown. Specially pay attention to different kinds of summer treats since you don’t get the chance to make them in winter. Some homemade ice popsicles, ice cream, ice coffee, simple salads and cool juices are easy -peasy cooking ideas for you to kick start your holidays. It’s brilliant even when you have a party to offer little ones and your guests with these chilled drinks to make them cool!
Do some summer fashion
We can’t wear our winter clothes for summer, can we? Do some shopping to see what’s new to the town for summer and buy the items you like. Summer clothes start from denim shorts to swim wear so it’s a wide range of clothes that can have different choices. If you are going to the beach don’t forget to buy yourself a beach robe and sunglasses. If you have run out of sunscreen then add it to your shopping list as well. One of the new trends have become spray tanning to match the colors of this season. You can either get a sun tan or simply go to your beauty salon and get one done. It won’t cost you a lot but after and before a spray tan there are several do’s and not’s. So, take the proper advice to get the best results.
