I have vivid memories of family vacations as a kid and now as a parent. I didn’t care for them much as a kid which I now very much regret. I love them now as a parent. Creating memories is a gift for now and the future. I believe a little bit of intentionality is what really makes a vacation great. Thinking / planning ahead and talking to the rest of the family can make a huge difference. The internet provides us unlimited resources to finding things to do in an area. I read this post on “5 Things to do on Every Family Vacation” that is worth reading too.
