Weekend Vacation Fun
by Dian Thomas

If you lack money or time for that dream cruise or family trip, you can still take a memorable vacation spread thorough the entire summer. You can plan one-, two-, or three-day excursions that require a minimum of travel and money and promise a maximum amount of fun.

Try these trips to make your mini vacation carefree and watch the video to learn some idea to entertain the children when traveling.

Destination Game

To add an air of suspense to your travels, try this easy way to decide the destinations and activities of your weekend excursion.

Spend an evening with family or friends pinpointing nearby places you want to visit and activities you want to try. Write each excursion or activity on a separate slip of paper and place the slips in a bowl or box. When you have a free day, draw a paper from the bowl or box and head out for so travel fun.
