When younger, I relied on my parents to come up with fun activities for vacations. Sometimes it was just about visiting with people they knew and going according to the plans they generated. If they had kids, that meant we would be entertained. But other times, we made special plans as well as just sight seeing. Some of the present day activities did not exist then.

Climbing walls for instance, were not a thing then. But they are very popular with kids today. In fact, now they have walls just for kids and hang out areas for parents. Now they have other recreational entertainments as well like ping pong, a yoga studio, classes for yoga enthusiasts, places to eat and even retail outlets. If someone has a birthday coming up, it might be a consideration.

Aquatic centers are also fun. A water slide is common which children love. Ropes into the pool and leisure pools are also a thought to pass the time. Parents usually like the sauna facilities and hot tubs. Mini golf is a great family activity to while away the hours. Don't forget about the free water parks in most cities. A picnic would round out those kind of activities.

If it is too hot for outside pursuits, consider taking a tour around a museum or science center. Look for a bowling center if you crave a little competition or even a horseshoe pit in an outside park. Check out the local Farmers Market when hunger pangs attack. If you feel brave, try out the zip line some places offer and trails for hiking. Maybe fishing is your thing and that could be a great family outing in parks where this is encouraged.
