Are you planning a family vacation this summer? More than likely, your family consists of two to three generations, and these generations typically have very different ideas of what is fun. When planning your next family vacation, make everyone happy with these fun-for-all activity ideas:
Concerts or Plays. Concerts are fun for all, just make sure the music can be appreciated by all generations. Try compromising with everyone. You can also make time to see a local show!
Cooking Lessons. If you are going abroad, try signing up the family for a cooking lesson. Older generations will enjoy learning about the history of local foods (and eating the foods) while the younger generations will enjoy being able to help cook (and eating the food!).
Interactive Museums. Look for a few local museums in your area of travel. Interactive museums are best for larger families. Older generations can enjoy the history, while younger generations will enjoy interacting with the exhibits.
Don’t have time for a full blown vacation? Why not make a day trip and take advantage of the many activities offered throughout the Twin Cities area! The city of Minneapolis offers a variety of movies and concerts in many of the local parks. They have plenty of films and musical options that the whole family will enjoy!
