Travel Options for your next Family Vacation

As a trucker, you spend a great deal of time away from your family, so your vacation is something you look forward to. While you may be looking forward to your time away, chances are you’re not excited about a road trip with your family. If so, there’s no need to worry, because there are plenty of vacation options that don’t require a great deal of driving and will easily suit your budget as well.


The beauty about a camping trip is that you don’t have to go too far away from home. That makes it especially nice for truckers who don’t want to spend a great deal of time driving while on vacation. Camping can give you the opportunity to get away from that pesky traffic you’re used to dealing with on a daily basis and spend some quiet time with nature. Plan to do some hiking and fishing on your camping trip, and don’t forget making s’mores around the campfire at night. If you’re camping in winter, look for a cabin with a cozy fireplace and then spend the day outdoors hiking or snowshoeing. You’ll feel much more relaxed when you finally hit the road again because you have been able to block out all other distractions during this special time with your family.

Beach Bungalow

Take to the water for a family vacation you’re sure to remember. You can either make it an ocean getaway or head to a recreational lake to enjoy swimming and boating. Plan to take some walks along the shore and build sand castles with the little ones. You could also rent a fishing charter, go dolphin sighting, or try your hand at waterskiing. When the day is done, sit on the banks of the water and watch the sun go down over the horizon. Whether you stay in a quiet beach bungalow or a high-rise condo, just being at the beach can be fun and exciting for people of all ages. There’s a certain calmness that comes with being near water, which means you’ll be rejuvenated and ready to head out in your truck once you return home again.

Family-Themed Cruise

If you’re truly looking for a vacation of a lifetime, why not consider a family cruise? Several of the major cruise liners offer packages that are ideal for families with children to consider. These ships have amenities such as rock climbing walls, skating rinks, and miniature golf for the kids to enjoy. Some of them also have special programs and entertainment designed especially for children. The fun’s not limited to kids, as adults can enjoy Broadway-style musicals and plenty of fine dining. Some of the other amenities a cruise ship could hold include a fitness center, water park, and a zip line. You can choose from a number of destinations, so you can visit exotic places that you may have only dreamed of visiting before.

Finding a vacation for the family to enjoy doesn’t have to be difficult. There are plenty of choices that will help you escape the pressures of truck driving so you can focus on being with those who matter most to you. By planning a quality family vacation, you’ll feel a little less guilty about the time you’re away from home while earning a living as an over-the-road truck driver.
