Get Away with Fun Travel Games

With summer time usually comes vacations, but these days traveling with even a small family adds up quickly.  My dream vacation is to go somewhere tropical but with the cost of gas and flights these days, it is just not a possibility right now.  With fun travel games at I’ve found that taking an exciting trip does not always have to be expensive. My favorite game, Vacation Quest – The Hawaiian Islands, provides an exciting alternative and a great way to relax in the comfort of my own home

This hidden object game is full of beautiful locations and scenes, it really feels like you’re there!  And if Hawaii isn’t your thing, there are other travel games that whisk you away to anywhere from Paris to Australia to Egypt and more.

But when the kids awaken you from your virtual vacation and it’s time to go on a real one, there are plenty of fun ideas that won’t leave you breaking the bank in order to have a good time. Here are a few of the best budget-friendly vacation ideas.


Enjoy the splendor of the outdoors while saving money. Tents, sleeping bags and other camping necessities are available at affordable prices from many camping stores. Many inexpensive food items can be brought along for the trip and can include things like hotdogs, burgers and s’mores. Camping also offers a great way to spend time with the family while exploring the wonders of nature.

Stay Local

Many people would be surprised to learn that many fun attractions can be found not too far away from home. Museums, historical walking tours and water parks can provide a fun experience for the entire family. Give yourself a more authentic vacation experience by staying at a local hotel or bed and breakfast.

Consider Swapping Houses

There may be other people like you who are looking to take a vacation. Perhaps your local area appeals to another person as an ideal vacation spot and vice versa. If this is the case, you may be able to arrange a housing swap with that person. People often swap houses free of charge in order to save money on accommodations.

  2. Outdoor camping sounds interesting to me, it’s an activity where your whole family can surely enjoy . Gathered around the campfire while eating and chatting is an ideal moment I picture out my family and I will be doing.
