4 Fun Places to Stay on a Family Road Trip
The family road trip often hinges on where you stay at night. If you get a good night’s sleep and everyone feels cozy, the next day goes better every time.
Here are some fun options for you and your brood to stay the next time you take the annual family road trip.
National parks provide a fun alternative to hotels and motels, and many times it will often be a cost savings as well. The kids will love exploring what the park has to offer, and you’ll love the peace and quiet that comes from being outdoors.
The great part is, most national parks have an awesome website associated with them that will provide you with all of the information you need before showing up. If you don’t have a particular park in mind yet, the National Park Service website is a great place to start.
If you’ve never stayed in an RV Motel you are in for a treat. These combine the fun of staying in an RV with the bonus of not having to drive one. The great part is you often will have a choice between different sizes and styles of RVs, and you can pick and choose which one you want based on the features that each one offers.
RV motels range from place to place, including a quirky Airstream RV motel, or a more modern motel with Class A models that feel like mini homes. Depending on the climate and location, you’ll see that each motel caters to the local demand.
Did you know there are actually real life ghost houses you can spend the night in? It may sound creepy, but if you like a good scare you should book a stay at a bona fide ghost house and you are sure to have stories to tell for years to come.
Some ghost houses have a storied history that dates back for generations, and whether or not you are a believer of these legends they’ll still make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Of course, you’ll want to make sure everyone in your family is on board with this idea, or the trip might be memorable for all the wrong reasons.
Bed and Breakfast
A quick search for a family-friendly bed and breakfast will turn up a great selection of B&Bs that cater to a traveling family. These houses-turned-hotels provide that home away from home feeling, and breakfast the next day.
Breakfast can be a real treat when you’re traveling with your family and everyone wakes up hungry. Most reputable B&Bs will have an assortment of breakfast items that even the pickiest eaters will enjoy.
So be sure to shake things up the next time you take the family road trip and stay somewhere you’ve never stayed before. All it takes is a little thinking outside the box, stepping outside your comfort zone, and trying something new.
