Fresh ideas for travel in 2018

We all need help from time to time, no doubt.

Here at Rad Family Travel, we believe we can all live our best life with the help of others.

That includes connecting, sharing, and brainstorming ideas with other families like yours and ours who value recess and great getaways with the goal of returning home rejuvenated and reconnected.

This coming year, we want to help you get out there together.

So, needing inspiration for your next best vacation with your growing kids and teens?

We got you covered.

Road trips on a budget

As a family of six, we've logged a lot of miles on our ole' swagger wagon. While we enjoy flying, driving beats out flying 99.9% of the time when it comes to traveling on a budget.

We get it.

Some of our all-time favorite family vacations included long road trips. Like our California road trip here.

Our favorite places

National parks, beaches, cities, mountains.

Roughing it or luxe travel? We like both. 

Check out the gorgeous, spoil-you-rotten Big Cedar Lodge in the Ozark Mountains or an unforgettable road trip through Utah's Mighty Five.

Outdoor adventure is high on our list, especially with tweens and teens.

Relaxing and just hanging out together is key too. We appreciate a mix of action and chill time.
