Mini vacations are perfect for summer. What is the most fun you can have in the summer? Anything that makes a memory! Family vacations, short day-trips and other activities that cost little or no money are the most fun when we are with our families and those we love.

Show Notes – Mini Vacations

  1. Set your budget for your trip
  • What do you plan on spending for the trip
  • What do you plan to spend each day
  • Do you plan to bring food or to pack a lunch?


2. Set your time limit constraints and if any

  • How long do you want to be gone?
  • How far do you want to travel?
  • Do you want to visit museums, parks or other places?

3. Look at your child’s ages and select age-appropriate locations

  • Younger children are maxed out after a few hours and like locations that include hands-on activities
  • Older children may like activities such as hikes, train trips or water parks

4. Create memories

  • Take pictures and create an album
  • Take the children to places you’ve visited as a child

5. Share your expectations especially with teen-aged children.

  • Let the children know what is expected and allow their input.
  • As a rule of thumb, outdoor activities often are less expensive than indoors.
