- The Atlanta Aquarium or even better the City Pass to Atlanta
I include the Atlanta Aquarium because it SO much more than just an aquarium, even though the aquarium itself it somewhat MAGICAL! I have been as a regular customer as well as toured the “backside” which is where they take care of the animals, feed them, transfer them and MORE! When you walk into the aquarium you are taken away by the size and things happening around you! They have an awesome walk through tunnel where the kids can see animals swimming above and below and side to side! Make sure you also see the 3D movie which the kids(and yourself) will love!
The Atlanta CityPASS:
CityPASS Admission Includes
- Georgia Aquarium
- World of Coca-Cola
- CNN Studio Tours
- Zoo Atlanta OR Center for Civil and Human Rights
- Fernbank Museum of Natural History OR College Football Hall of Fame
- The Beach- according to where you live the actual beaches will vary,(the closest one to me is Panama City Beach, Fl) however, the beach is an awesome place for a family vacation!! Sun, sand, and beautiful ocean is an amazing time for families! Make a picnic on the beach or do like we used to do and go crab hunting at night! Because the beach is only an hour and a half away from us, this is the vacation we take the most!
- Tampa Bay CityPASS-
CityPASS Admission Includes:
1Busch Gardens Tampa Bay
2The Florida Aquarium
3ZooTampa at Lowry Park
4Clearwater Marine Aquarium
5Museum of Science & Industry OR Chihuly Collection
Busch Gardens is AWESOME for the adults and kids! They have rides and beautiful scenery!
4. Take a Cruise with the Kids!
If you find a family friendly cruise get ready for both you and the kids to have a BLAST!! If you use the link below they even have certain cruises that allow the kids to cruise for FREE!!

Now we cannot forget that traveling with kids is NOT always easy right? Certainly not, these convenience traveling kits below can surely help a little bit!
My own kids(8,7,&3) tend to get bored VERY easily! Therefore we NEVER forget to bring the portable DVD player(and charger + DVDS), their own set of headphones, TONS of snacks and drinks in a cooler, and travel size games! Here a few cool travel games to get you started: The Travel Games of Things for Multiple Ages, Traveling craft game kit, and for the little ones try this Sesame Street Travel Set here.
So what are YOUR families summer plans? Myself, my spouse and our three kids are planning A LOT of beach vaca’s or really “mini vaca’s” but we also REALLY want to make it to Atlanta to the aquarium and possibly take advantage of the Atanta CityPASS. I would love to hear your plans let me know in the comments below!
By the way, I would HIGHLY recommend purchasing this very affordable road trip in a box product it is awesome and has you covered for HOURS of FUN!
