When it comes to planning the ultimate summer getaway for you and the kids, you might be struggling to come up with the perfect plan. There are tons of options out there for parents to enjoy the summer months while the kids have a ball as well, and while some are more expensive than others, not all of them have to break the bank. Need some ideas from both camps? Check out these awesome summer holiday ideas for all budgets.

A Family Trip To Florida

A family holiday to the Sunshine State is a great way to spend your summer holidays if you love theme parks, beaches and general fun times. Florida is home to some of the most enjoyable parks in North America including Universal Studios, Disneyworld, Discovery Cove, Epcot Centre and SeaWorld to name but a few. You can avoid the queues with Disney park tickets online, saving you time, stress and money as opposed to buying them on the day, with a lot of great packages to be had if you choose to purchase them in advance.

Not only is Florida awash with great parks, but the likes of the natural reserve of the Everglades makes for some great wildlife viewing for those who love getting back to nature. You can take hovercraft tours of parts of the wetlands where you might get to see some of the regional crocodiles along with other animals that call the region home. Want something a bit more luxurious? Consider heading to the Florida Keys – a string of islands in the Gulf of Mexico that are home to luscious beaches, turquoise waters and numerous resorts where you can get pampered and feel like a movie star.


A staycation is always enjoyable for those who are on a tight budget or for those who just want to sit back, relax and enjoy their time off. Staycations usually mean just pottering around the house, catching up on your favourite TV shows and doing various projects in the home that you want to get done before heading back to work. If you have kids, consider getting them involved in projects around the house – such as redecorating or helping to build a deck or even gardening. It’s a fantastic way to get the kids off those iPads and doing something productive!


A time honoured tradition with many, camping is probably one of the most popular summer activities. Not only is it enjoyable and fun, but it helps you to get back to nature and resets your body clock with the rising and setting of the sun. You can enjoy all the camping activities like canoeing, bonfires, roasting marshmallows and more, along with spending quality time with the family or friends without the interruptions of the modern world.

So if you’ve been looking for great ways to spend the summer months for 2019, consider one or two of these great ideas. With so many options out there, it’s difficult to pick just a couple to fill your days, but hopefully this short list will get you started with ideas you can try this year and years to come.
