In this day and age, it can seem nearly impossible to get the entire family in one place. There always seems to be something like late night meetings at the office, sporting events, and everything in between that takes up our time. Life becomes a busy mess of checking things off of our “to do” lists and events filling up our calendars. Why not take a break from the craziness of life at home, pack up the kids, and escape with us here at Southern Oaks Inn and spend some time as a family in one of the best pet friendly hotels St Augustine FL has.
Traveling With Kids
One of the most significant roadblocks when traveling kids is keeping them entertained in transit without the typical “Are we there yet?” conversations. We all remember the little games of i-spy, road sign games, and car karaoke, but sometimes that does not last the entire trip. A great way to keep your kids busy during your travels and out of your hair is by having a travel kit for each child. Find a backpack or small tote and put these items in it for endless entertainment for your tiny backseat drivers:
- Coloring book
- An I-Spy bottle
- Homemade window clings
- A magnetic chalkboard
- Fun magnets
- Snacks, snacks, and more snacks.
Avoid sticker books and markers as they could potentially damage vehicle interior if the kids get carried away. For snacks, you can find a small tackle box to keep things like celery sticks, carrots, apple slices, crackers, and other tasty treats in their own spot and make it easy to find and transport everywhere.
Building An Itinerary
Once you get to St Augustine and get all settled in, it is time to set out on fun adventures. When planning for your trip, building an itinerary can be beneficial in making sure you do not miss any of the best stops and attractions. The best way to create an itinerary is by finding one or two large attractions each day, such as the St Augustine Aquarium or Potter’s Wax Museum, and two smaller adventures along the way. This allows you to spend a good amount of time checking out each stop without running on a tight schedule to make it to each place before closing time. You will also be able to make impromptu stops for those interesting spots that you just cannot pass by.
Finding That Perfect Stay
The most important part of planning any trip is finding the perfect accommodations for your ideal stay. You will be sure to find ideal features and pet friendly hotels St Augustine FL when you stay with us at Southern Oaks Inn. You can kick back by the pool while the kids make a splash and know that you are making memories that you and your family will never forget. We even have accommodations for your dog if you bring your best friend along for the journey. Call us or visit our website to book your next family vacation with us!
