Travelling as a family is one of the best ways to make memories. We live such busy lives that it can be difficult to spend some real quality time together.
However, taking a vacation can just be the thing to get everyone back together.
You take time off from your job, you change the scenery, and you have the chance to be together without all the typical day to day stresses.
The problem a lot of families face is knowing exactly what to do with that one or two week period.
So many families tend to stick with what they know for ease, or just feel less inspired to try something new.
However, here we look at some ideas that you may not have thought about and hopefully inspire you to try something new.

The ultimate once in a lifetime holiday
Everyone has that once in a lifetime holiday dream. It might be something that requires many hours of travelling on a plane, or is so expensive that you have to save up for a long time for it.
This might be a visit to Disney World or Outback free tours in Australia. Don’t keep putting it off, because one day, it will be too late to do it.
If you can afford to do it, then book it. No one ever regrets going, but will always regret not going!
Cruises often have a reputation for being for older people, but more and more families are considering cruising these days, and why not?
Most cruises ships are pretty spectacular and have everything you need for a family vacation onboard, from swimming pools to kids clubs.
On top of that, you have the added benefits of seeing many different locations in one trip.
With organised tours and excursions, where you can explore new countries and areas, but with the knowledge, you can get back on board and revel in luxury in the evenings.
A city break
Again, this is something that is often overlooked when you have children, but there really is no reason why you should.
A city break can be just as interesting for younger children as much as it can be for adults, especially if you do it for a long weekend.
It is an excellent opportunity to expose your children to new cultures and history, allowing them to learn new things and experience a different way of life.
Museums and art galleries can often be great attractions within a city, and it can often be a relatively inexpensive way to occupy your time while away.
Travel does not have to be about a resort in a sunny country, with drinks and sunloungers on tap.
It can be everything you want it to be for your family. Instead of doing what you have done year in, year out, why not try something new and learn to love travel as a family? You won’t regret it!
