For some of us, the term ‘planning’ ignites our excitement for an upcoming adventure. For the rest of us, the idea of planning is a process to be resisted, or a process we see as a burden. Despite which category you fall into, we all know that planning a family vacation can often grow tedious – with dozens of internet tabs littering your display screen, tabs on various guidebooks, and illegible mock itineraries scribbled along as you begin to decipher and map out each of your destination attraction locations. As exhilarating as this process may be for some travelers, most of us can barely find the time to book our flights – let alone prepare all the activities prior to taking advantage of those vacation days. Here are some of our recommendations for planning a family vacation:

Booking the hotel and airfare is the easy part, of travel planning – it’s building out your activities schedule that can often take the most time. With our Go City Cards, the process is simple!

Start by exploring the offered attractions in your destination city. Consider each of your family member’s interests as you browse, and select activities that all of you can enjoy. Feeling daring? Include attractions that are outside of your comfort zone! Non-sports fans can discover an appreciation for Red Sox Nation on the Fenway Park Tour in Boston; art-lovers can get a rush on the SHARK Speedboat Ride in New York; museum junkies might just catch a wave with Beach Gear Rentals in Oahu.

Don’t forget you beach gear on your Family Vacation!

Vacation isn’t just about discovering a new place – it’s about discovering new sides of yourself, and growing as a family. When we step outside our comfort zone, we build lasting memories of our experiences. With our Go City Cards, you can see any or all of the offered attractions in your destination city for one low price – allowing you to be spontaneous and explore attractions you may not have otherwise considered!

Once you’ve determined which attractions you’re interested in, you can consult a map to decide how you’d like to arrange your itinerary to maximize your schedule. With your Go City Card, some attractions will allow you to skip those long attraction lines, so you and your family can make the most of your travel time! Your included guidebook features detailed maps and recommendations for each region of your city, making it simple to navigate the locale. It also provides specific redemption instructions, hours of operation, and attraction descriptions and details.

Since all the attractions are included, you can change your mind at a moment’s notice. Sudden downpour in San Diego? Not to worry! Your Go City Card offers plenty of alternative activities to keep you and your family entertained.
