Theme/amusement park:
Amusement parks are the most costly option on this list but are a great way to spend an entire day. Roller Coasters, water slides, park experiences and everything in between allow fun for all ages as longs as you can keep going. With food options of all kind often available, people are able to refuel and keep going as long as their enthusiasm or pass may allow.

Camping:
Camping is often an acquired taste. The thought of sleeping in a tent, preparing your own food, being out in the middle of nowhere and without an internet connection is enough to put most people off, but it is, however, a great way for a family to bond. Where you’re camping and whatever conditions you are facing can require people to rely heavily on others to put up tents, cook/prepare food and pack up when it’s time to leave. This a great way to learn valuable life experience and spend uninterrupted time with your family.
