Grandparent-grandkid vacations are becoming more and more popular. These vacations are great bonding opportunities, especially for grandparents who live far away from their grandchildren. Plus, these fun getaways provide a much-needed break for parents. By gearing up and hitting the road with your grandkids, the old stereotype of spending a dreaded week at the grandparents’ house is no more.
Here are a few of the best vacations to take with your grandkids for a unique experience you can share forever.
Take an Educational Organized Trip
Educational travel organizations provide many experiences for all different age groups—some even have specific categories for grandparent-specific trips. These trips offer unique experiences such as seeing a Broadway show or rafting in the Grand Canyon for more adventurous pairs.
Educational trips are designed to be exciting, unique, and adventure-seeking to make learning fun instead of boring to your younger grandkids.
Organized trips also provide the added benefit of traveling with other like-minded pairs, allowing you to meet other grandparents vacationing with their grandkids as well.
Visit a National Park
National parks are a great option for an outdoor vacation with your grandkids. National parks provide a discounted senior rate, making them easily affordable for you and the grandkids to visit.
National parks are a must-see vacation destination for all ages and provide breathtaking views, plenty of educational opportunities, and active tours.
Drop-In at a Dude Ranch
Give your grandkids a taste of the old days by bringing them to a dude ranch. Dude ranches are a great place to get your grandkids to disconnect from social media and experience some old-fashioned living.
Even without their technological vices, your grandkids will find plenty to do, from horseback riding to preparing fresh meals from the ranch gardens.
Try Out a New Theme Park
One of the best vacations to take with your grandkids is a theme park vacation. Adventure-seeking kids of all ages love theme parks, making this a vacation your grandkids will certainly be excited about.
