When planning an all-inclusive family vacation be sure to consider the interests of all of your family members.
This can become especially challenging if your family consists of children of very diverse ages.
While you and your spouse may be perfectly happy participating in activities that one or the other enjoys, do not expect such a happy compromise from your children.
Destination, therefore, is of utmost importance, in for all inclusive family vacation.
Choose a destination that offers a wide range of activities.
Beaches, theme parks, cruises and all inclusive family resorts generally fall into this category.
Most children are easily bored by certain activities such as sightseeing. Sightseeing can also be too strenuous for them.
If there is any sight-seeing to be done, then teenagers prefer to do it on their own or with their peers. Unless they are avid birdwatchers you should allow your kids to pick the cultural activities that they find most interesting.
A new activity that my family has started doing with our kids is visiting the state park that is near whichever resort we are renting.
Most state parks offer a free junior ranger's program.This is a great way to introduce some culture to the kids and allow them to see the many differences and similarities found in different cities in the United States.
There are several activities that the kids need to complete in order to earn their Junior Ranger's badge. A few of the things that we have had to do are: naming plant and animal species that are found in the park, drawing a foot print of an animal and recycling any trash they may see on the grounds.
At the end of the day, not really a day it usually only takes about two hours, the children are presented a Junior Ranger certificate and a badge.
This is a wonder free activities and especially fun for kids who are either boy scouts or girl scouts.
If your all-inclusive family vacations involve a beach, you will of course enjoy the sand the sun and the water.
But besides relaxing, you can indulge in scores of water sports, ranging from swimming to surfing, beaches are ideal for all inclusive family vacations.
