If you want something a bit more laid back and perhaps inexpensive, you can always go camping. There are a few different ways to go about this. You do not have to pitch tents and cook over a campfire if you do not want to, though that is certainly an option. There are campgrounds everywhere, and some have cabins for rent that make camping a bit easier while still having the great experience of being outdoors and spending time together as a family. Some companies offer RV rentals, which can be great as well. These options can be the most relaxing choices for summer family vacations.
