5 Family Travel Tips
Whew. That is all I can say about this summer. It was busier than I anticipated. It was the summer of travel! We traveled locally and left the state twice. Although summer is coming to an end, family travel tips are handy throughout the year! We’ll be doing more travel this year and next year as well. Tips are always helpful so I thought I’d share what I learned this summer.
1. Pack Snacks
This is something that I did for each trip and I’m so glad I did. I packed snacks with us whether we were driving or flying. It saves money but it’s also something familiar. W is pretty good when it comes to eating. But having familiar snacks while on the road was definitely a huge help!
2. Sleep in a Suite
If your travel involves a hotel, try to find one with a suite. This summer I learned the joys of having a two room suite. There was room for everyone! W could spread his toys out and get comfortable. And I still had space to myself as well! Plus, most of these suites have a mini fridge which is great for storing drinks and snacks!
3. Don’t Be Afraid of Downtime
I’m the type who likes to be busy on vacation. I like to pack in as much as I can. I want to get my money’s worth! With a family, this is not always the best move! Sometimes spending some time around the hotel pool or in the room relaxing is just what the family needs to make the rest of the vacation go smoothly.
4. Protect Your Skin
I was good about sunscreen this summer. I didn’t want W’s sensitive, alabaster white skin to be damaged. I even protected myself pretty well. That is an accomplishment! I am usually so concerned about my little guy that I forget myself. But traveling with kids is never fun if someone has a sunburn. So don’t forget the sunscreen.
5. Keep Kids Healthy
Traveling can often do a number on a person’s system. W spent a day on our San Antonio trip with a fever and not feeling well. J spent a night on our Galveston trip with a stomach ache. It can happen to the best of us when we travel.

We tried the packets and I love how easily they dissolved in a cup of juice or water. I tried the chewables to see what they tasted like and enjoyed the natural bursting berry flavor. I didn’t notice any aftertaste or anything either. It’s an easy thing to take along on your next family trip!
What tip helps you when you’re traveling with the family?
