4 Surprisingly Relaxing Family Vacations


1
Camping

Camping may not sound very relaxing if you’re the person who’s in charge of packing food, tents, sleeping bags, gear, and activities for your entire family – or if you’re the one who keeps seeing rain in the forecast – but once you set up camp in the great outdoors, it doesn’t take long to let the sights and sounds of nature push all the stresses of your daily life out of your mind. Spend your days reading by the tent, splashing in the lake, or tiring out the kids on an afternoon hike; then sleep like a baby under the stars after campfire dinners, s’mores, and ghost stories. For maximum relaxation, choose a site out of Wi-Fi and 3G range so you can all unplug.
