One of the best family vacation travel tips to remember is that it doesn't matter if you are traveling by car, plane or train, having exciting travel games on hand will help to make great memories. And, they are fun to have whether your vacation is on an island, a beach, a mountain top, a cabin, a forest, a big city, or a cruise ship.

Another best vacation packing tip is to remember to bring some of the oldies but goodies from your house, but also, to buy a few new ones for the trip and surprise your kids.

Be prepared by having travel games you can pull out when you are staying in a hotel, a tent, a camper, a cabin, or Grandma’s house!

Let’s face it, sometimes (and usually when you least expect it) kids can get bored and just need some games to play even when they are in the most beautiful spot in the world.

Sometimes they can’t seem to get excited about a romantic sunset, or relaxing with a cup of coffee while watching the sunrise, or just marveling over the scenery with awe and thankfulness.

Yep, that’s when you need to be able to pull out a surprise by pulling out a few travel games for kids from your hidden stash tucked in one of your suitcases.

There are ways to have fun while traveling in the car that do not require you to purchase anything. 

  • Look for license plates from different countries and states.  Keep track of all the plates.  This is also a good way to learn United States geography!
  • If you are heading to northern Michigan, see who can spot the Mackinac Bridge first!
  • Sing old favorite songs together.
  • See who can name the capital of each state you enter.

These are just a few of the ways to have travel fun and make great family memories!
