4 Great Getaways to Make Family Memories

It’s 2022 and many of us are ready to bust out of our houses! With Covid looming over us, we’ve spent way too much time at home and online over the last two years. But girls and adults are ready to step outside and try something new. IRL! So today we’re sharing 4 great getaways to make family memories.
These getaways are great for girls and fun for families, and can be adapted to meet your family’s budget.

1) Go Camping

Camping is one of our absolute favorite pastimes because it’s affordable and kids love it. Kids can learn resilience and independence by helping to carry equipment (especially if you’re backpacking!), setting up camp, making meals, etc. If you’re not sure where to go, try checking out the state parks closest to you. State parks are often scenic and include opportunities for more outdoor recreation, but aren’t quite as crowded as national parks.

2) Hit the Beach

Beach vacations can be full of adventure too. These trips give kids the opportunity to witness the power of the ocean and nature, and learn how they can develop the skills to enjoy the water safely. Beyond building sand castles, solid swimmers (with proper supervision, of course) can experiment with wave jumping, boogie boarding and surfing. Sea kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving are options in some places too.

3) Explore the Desert

Most people may not think that kids and deserts make a good combination, but believe it or not, they can! Some of the most beautiful rock formations can be found in desert areas, and are perfect for exploring in the spring or fall. (When it’s not too hot or too cold.) Kids love playing around and climbing on desert boulders and arches. National parks like Joshua Tree and Pinnacles offer affordable camping options too, but beware—you need to book them way in advance.

4) Head to the Mountains

A mountain getaway is a magic opportunity for girls to explore their strength and relationship with nature. Depending where you go, activities may include hiking, swimming, kayaking, stand-up paddling, downhill cycling, rock climbing, horseback riding and more.

Here’s to making amazing memories in 2022!
