Top Tips for Family Travels

by |

Summers are usually full of family travels. Here are some tips to make them run smoothly so everyone's having fun.

Traveling this summer with the kids? The key to a happy family vacation is to be prepared! Take these tips from the folks at FastPark (thefastpark.com), who have seen plenty of vacationing families come and go!

LET KIDS PACK THEIR OWN BAGS

With a little supervision from you, kids can pack their own bags and learn the difference between needs and wants.

PRE-LOAD FAMILY ELECTRONICS

Make sure all batteries are fully charged, you have all your chargers, and your devices are loaded with kid-friendly apps.

HAVE A FUN BAG

For the tiniest kids, bring along paper and washable markers, travel games and picture books. Older kids will love a hand-held device. Of course, always bring extra snacks.  Head to http://www.thefastpark.com/travelplanning/inflightactivities/ for some fun ideas of games and activities to play during or before the flight.

PREP FOR SECURITY

Explain security in simple terms: “We take off our shoes here,” and “We put our computers here …” etc. So they’ll know what to expect and can help you move along.
