Family Travel Tips: Matching Your Transportation To Your Adventure
Your family vacation is booked. You’re headed to somewhere that everyone has agreed on. You’ve done the planning, the hotels are set, the budgets are good, and everyone’s ready for a positive experience. One sort of unique things that you can add to that experience, if you’d like, is the form of transportation – assuming that you’ll be traveling by car in this instance.
And the point of the specific addition is to match your transportation to the vibe or overall theme of your journey. Think about what this would mean, for instance, for a vacation out skiing, or going camping, or hitting the beach. What about crossing the country in comfort, or what short trips in style would add to the memory? Take a moment to consider.
Hitting the Slopes
What’s the perfect car for a ski adventure? Obviously it has to have enough room for the family, but then you’re also going to want room for equipment, great handling for those slippery roads, and maybe even a sense of style or adventure to go with the idea of shooting down the mountain on the latest powder. Simply the act of traveling to your adventure can be part of the experience in this way.
And let’s say you’ve decided to go camping. If you could pick a vehicle of choice to go on that journey, what would it be? Do you envision yourself in a car that’s a little bit more rough and rowdy, like a Jeep or a pickup? Something that can withstand the elements and go off-road? That sort of extra potential to head into new terrain could be a huge source of fun out on your vacation.
The Beach Vacation
And then there’s the ultimate beach vacation. Pack your swimsuits and sunscreen and get ready to hit the sand and ride the waves. What would be your ultimate transportation for that journey? What about something like a VW Bus? Lots of room for those surfboards and sun umbrellas, and the sand on the floorboards will fit right in with your mood at your destination.
Crossing the Country In Comfort
Now, if your vacation is all about something like traveling the country and sightseeing, then your mode of transportation has to be all about comfort. Something like a big, comfy full sized van with entertainment screens built in, and big captain’s chairs for the kids would work just perfectly.
Short Trips In Style
The very short trips in style, maybe for families with older children, might involve something like a limo. The short drive to a big concert, for example, would be a great opportunity to make that happen with total VIP status.
