Making Your Vacation Unique & Inspiring
That quote about is pretty much my mantra when it comes to anything related to travel. It goes the same for my entire family.
As you know I am an Alamo Chief Travel Mom and this month we are talking about how to make your family vacation unique and really create lasting memories because isn't that what vacations are all about? Our vacations are memorable, unique, inspiring and the perfect time for my family to embark on a new adventure or visit some of our old favorites.
This summer we will be taking 6-7 different road trips around the East Coast and we could not be more excited. We have lots of games that we play together as a family and one of favorites involves a tablet or Kindle. We download all sorts of games like I Spy Bingo plus city guides for kids. We play the games, talk about the destinations and really have a great time. It sure beats listening to, “are we there yet?”
Here are some really fun games that you can download to your Kindle or tablet to play along with your family on your next vacation. Save these to your computer and then load them to your tablet so you always have something fun and unique to keep everyone entertained.
IN THE ALAMO #DRIVEHAPPY BOX
These boxes are filled with some of our favorite things. The adorable Alamo lunchbox is packed with items that will most certainly make your next vacation unique. You will find a Polaroid 300 Instant Camera to capture those important memories, a beautiful Chamilia Charm Bangle Bracelet where you can collect charms from your favorite trips (that is what I do), an ALEX DIY Duct Tape Tote that my kids made the second it arrived at our house and a Crayola Color Wonder Mini Stow and Go to keep little hands busy. Of course, it is all topped off with a Kindle Paperwhite so you can play the games above with your family to pass the time.
How could these not inspire you to create a unique vacation?
