3 Unique Family Vacation Ideas for Outdoor Lovers

Beach and tent camping trips are popular vacations for families who love being outdoors. Problem is, even your kids will be less excited to go if you do the same sort of trip year after year. If you’re ready to explore other options this year, here are three unique vacation ideas to try.


Swap the tent for a cabin rental and enjoy the comforts of home in the beautiful outdoor location of your choice. A cabin gives your family a quiet, spacious place to vacation with surrounding outdoor space for fun and games. You’ll find a variety of sizes and styles available from no-frills rustic to luxurious Broken Bow Cabins with internet access and cable television. Nearby, you’ll find opportunities to hike, fish, cycle or kayak.


If your family loves spontaneity on vacation, renting an RV is a great option so you can easily move between locations without unpacking. You’ll find a choice of sizes and amenities to choose from including those with full kitchens and reclining chairs and couches for relaxing after a full day of outdoor family fun. Kids will love the bunk beds and you’ll appreciate the convenience of the on-board bathroom.


Enjoy the beach from a different view for this vacation. A houseboat rental combines the fun of cruising with the convenience of RV camping and is a great choice for families who love water sports. Imagine swimming, fishing or launching a kayak from the deck of your own boat. Unwind from the day’s activities with a peaceful evening on the deck stargazing to the sound of gentle waves.

Each of these convenient unique family vacation options usually come fully stocked with pots, pans, cookware, plates, cups and utensils in the kitchen and linens for the bedrooms and bathrooms. The only essentials you need to pack are food, drinks, snacks, personal items and your family’s favorite outdoor activity gear.
