Spring Break Travel Tips for Families

Planning a spring break vacation can be a daunting task. When you and your family are looking for a vacation getaway with many different activities for families from Atlantanothing can compare to Callaway Gardens Resort. From bicycle trails and zipline adventures to overnight stays in Cottages or the Lodge and Spa, everything offered is exciting, fun, and relaxing for all family members. When you're planning your spring break vacation this year, be sure to follow a few of these travel tips in order to keep everything running according to plan.

Book Separate Rooms

Instead of choosing the standard hotel room that has two beds, reserve joined rooms or two-bedroom cottages. You might pay a little more for this option, but you'll be glad you did when it comes time to sleep. When traveling with your children, it can be extremely difficult to fall asleep with them jumping on their beds excitedly during their spring break vacation. If everyone is piled into one room, you'll be going to sleep at the same time as your kids. Whether that's later or earlier than you'd like can make or break your vacation. 

Make Reservations

To make sure that everyone in your family remains as comfortable as possible, you should make hotel and transportation reservations ahead of time. The last thing you want to do on your vacation is find out that you have nowhere to stay for the night because all the hotels are booked. Instead of waiting six hours for a rental car or wandering the interstate exits searching for a place to stay, you can save yourself the time and energy involved just by making a reservation at one of the accommodations at Callaway Gardens Resort.

Pack Sensibly 

When you're traveling with your whole family, chances are the load will be heavy. Everyone has suitcases full of items that they think they will need during the trip. If you need a stroller, crib, or bike during your trip, call ahead and see if you can rent any of these things. Most places will allow you to rent these items to save yourself the exhaustion of toting them back and forth during your travels. 

Download Movies, Music, and Books

If you have a tablet or iPad, load it up with books, movies, and music before your travels. If you ever find yourself with some downtime during your vacation, it's easy to get bored while sitting in a hotel room. If you've got loads of movies on your tablet, you'll always have one form of entertainment. Keeping your children occupied during a road trip can be a tricky task. Traveling with a tablet or iPad that is fully equipped with games, music, and movies will ensure you a peaceful drive. If you're looking for something to make your travels a bit easier, investing in a tablet may be a smart decision.

Stop and Smell the Roses

During a family vacation, it's easy to get stressed and carried away in all the activities you have planned. To get the most out of your vacation, remember why you came. Your goal is to relax, have fun, connect and spend time with your family. Don't forget to slow down and allow yourself to enjoy the moment.
