School is almost out for the summer! While the first official day of summer may still be a few weeks away (technically it’s Tuesday, June 20), the warm weather probably has everyone thinking summertime thoughts. That means planning summer vacations and other warm-weather family events—from trips overseas to trips to Worlds of Fun or Oceans of Fun right here in Kansas City. But those trips don’t always come cheap, and if you need a little extra cash for your next summer outing, a short-term loan may be just what the doctor ordered!
The family summer vacation is a time-honored tradition and something that many families look forward to all year long. There’s nothing better than the excitement of doing something unique during the break between school years, and besides, you want to be sure that your kids have something memorable to say in their “what I did over my summer vacation” essays next September, right?
In fact, there are so many great family vacation destinations right here in the continental United States that it can be difficult to choose just one. A few of the top spots for family outings include the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, Walt Disney World, and Washington, DC. There are even travel destinations that are closer to home. Right here in Kansas City we have amusement parks, museums that kids will love, a world-class zoo, and a recently-opened aquarium. Go a little further afield and you can visit the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, or head out to Colorado Springs to see the sights.
Many families plan road trips that let them visit two or three different destinations, thereby maximizing their family vacation experience, while some families eschew the road trip entirely in favor of something a little more exotic. Maybe you’ve all been itching to take a cruise, or are planning a flight to Mexico or Europe for a week or two.
No matter where you’re headed, you’ll want to make sure you pack all the essentials that make a family road trip unforgettable! That means plenty of clothing for everyone on the trip, and of course don’t forget swimsuits, hats, and sunglasses! If you’re going to be out in the sun or are heading to the beach, sunscreen and beach towels are also a must! Plus, it’s a good idea to make sure that the kids have something to keep them entertained in the car or on the flight. Long trips go much easier on everyone when there are plenty of movies, games, and apps on devices to keep everyone busy.
Of course, all that family fun isn’t free, and for most families part of planning a family summer vacation is saving up the cash that you’ll need for the trip. Even then, though, you may sometimes find yourself a little short on travel money to cover expenses—especially ones that crop up unexpectedly—no matter how carefully you’ve planned out your itinerary.
