Taking a real vacation isn’t always in the cards depending on pricing and even time during the summer, but taking a day trip somewhere is much more practical. Choose somewhere that is new to you and only a few hours away. Car rides with the family can be a great bonding experience, especially if you take away the electronic devices and have some real conversation.
This can be just your family or you could invite neighbors or family friends from your neighborhood. Enjoy burgers and hot dogs with classic sides like coleslaw and potato salad. If you’re not looking to host the town, keep it to just your family, but spend some extra time together preparing the meal as a family!
