We all have places that we’d LOVE to visit in our lifetime. I have a list that I keep, and have been slowly chipping away at it over the years. I know how difficult it is to travel with kids, mostly because very rarely can you get away to a destination that EVERYONE in the family is going to be happy with.
Back to my list – One of the place on my “to visit” list is Vail. When we lived up north we were a skiing family. As a matter of fact my son was on his first pair of skis at the age of two (we both learned to ski that year). Those were the vacations when the ENTIRE family enjoyed ourselves. It wasn’t so much the skiing as it was being outdoors and staying BUSY, while still enjoying each other’s company. We’d return to the mountains in the summer and would have the same type of experience. So, yes Vail always seemed like one of those destinations that the entire family would enjoy…..
Vail Resorts has developed a real FAMILY solution to vacationing, drawing on the majestic national parks and forests of the West to transform their village at Keystone Mountain into a family base from which daily adventure trips take place. Set in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, their Epic Summer Family Adventure offers families an action-packed getaway with 4 or 7-day itineraries.
- hiking up cool mountain trails
- going white water rafting
- zip lining
- trail horseback riding
- exploring National Parks
- adventure biking
- attend a real cowboy campfire dinner under the stars
Mom, you’ll love this part – all of the details have been taken care of for you, from transportation to guides to picnic lunches, adding up to the ultimate outdoor family experience. Moreover, back at home base other options await: Dad can hit the golf course while we Moms sneak off for some wondrous spa services.
With everything from meals to outdoor trips covered, all you have to do is show up with sneakers, a bathing suit, and a sense of adventure! Plus, the all-inclusive pricing proves surprisingly affordable. What better way to create lifelong memories than a vacation where the only thing you have to think about is how much fun you’re having.
I know that it’s almost time to go back to school. But a last minute summer vacation might be just the thing before all of the routines start up again in September.
