Travel and Vacation Information

Planning your next travel trip

Okay, now that you've all filled out your questionnaires, are there any items that you ALL checked that you like to do?

If so, make a list of these common interests.

Then, sit together as a family and talk about which ones you all think are the most exciting and rate them starting with #1.

Then, get a calendar and start marking off days that are "HIT THE ROAD" days so you can get excited.

ROAD TRIP #1: Drive in country (day, time, place)
ROAD TRIP #2: Go to movies (day, time, which movie?)
ROAD TRIP #3: ???

What if your family all checked off different things you like to do? Everybody sit down with a piece of paper and rank the things you checked that you like to do in order of importance. For example:

    #1 - climb trees
    #2 - watch animals
    #3 - splashing in waterfalls

Then, take your lists and combine them, writing down the top 3 favorite things each member of your family likes to do. For example:

Dad's List:

    #1 - Watching sports
    #2 - Playing sports
    #3 - Lying in a hammock

Mom's List:

    #1 - Shop
    #2 - Eat
    #3 - Sunbathe

Your List:

    #1 - Watching Animals
    #2 - Painting and Doing Arts & Crafts
    #3 - Science Experiments

Baby Brother's List:

    #1 - Watch movies
    #2 - Play games
    #3 - Fly kites

If you combine your favorite things, you need to find a place that has a way to watch sports, a place to shop, a place to watch animals, and a place to watch movies.

Maybe you could visit an aquarium or zoo with a gift shop in the morning - that would take care of Mom's #1 thing and your #1 thing. And then, for lunch you could go to a sports bar where Dad can watch some sports for his #1 choice. And, then you can all go to a matinee movie and take care of baby brother's #1 thing to do!

See how creative you can get in planning your family's ROAD TRIP!
