Unplug With These Summer Family Vacation Ideas

School’s out for summer! You know what that means? It’s time to make some family vacation memories. Luckily, there’s so much to do and so much to see when you unplug and get outside. If your family is up for a road trip, then these adventurous summer vacation ideas are just your style.  

  1. Explore Zion National Park


It’s hard to imagine the beauty of this place until you get there and see it for yourself. Zion National Park offers a variety of scenic trails from beginner to expert level. Emerald Pools is a nice hike for kids where you can cool off from the mist of the waterfalls and get some shade in the caves and grottos. On the drive in, you’ll probably spot some bighorn sheep or maybe some wild turkeys if you’re lucky. Oh, and the deer? They’re just part of the community, so you might see one in the parking lot at dinner. The fun continues when you stay at historic Parry Lodge, just a short drive away.

  1. Go See Hoover Dam


Make your family vacation educational and fun with a trip to the Hoover Dam. You can take a Black Canyon Raft Tour and experience the natural gorge of the Colorado River that flows below Hoover Dam. Share in the history and wildlife of this natural geological area. Your tour guide will take you through a history lesson of the Hoover Dam and Black Canyon. The rafts are comfortable and safe, so bring the kids!

  1. Camp at Yellowstone National Park


Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park should definitely be on any adventurous family’s bucket list. There’s so much to see, including the infamous Old Faithful Geyser. There are many campgrounds in Yellowstone or you can stay in nearby Jackson. Want to take the fun up a notch? Rent an ATV or four-seater UTV and go explore the backroads where the deer and the antelope play.   

  1. Rent a Houseboat


Nothing says summer like being on the water. Tubing and water skiing is really fun, but you know what’s even better? Renting a houseboat for a week! Seriously, your kids won’t believe that they can sleep in a boat! There are many Forever Resorts marinas just waiting to provide the adventure of a lifetime. Plus, you can rent small boats and other fun water toys too.
