Everyone knows that a little extra planning is necessary when to comes to traveling with children. After all, depending on the age they likely have favorite item that they can’t live without. Whether it is a stuffed animal, blanket, shirt or smart device if you leave it behind, you could incur a wrath that gets your Lake Tahoe vacation off to a rocky start. So what can you do to make sure your Lake Tahoe Getaway starts off smoothly? Check out these tips.
- Make a packing list for each child
It seems as though the smallest human needs the most things. If you are traveling with an infant, you likely need a carseat, stroller, baby carrier, specific clothing appropriate for the time of year, bottles, teethers and SO much more. With the school aged children, they will probably want some type of distraction to keep them occupied during the travels. This could be coloring supplies, books, tablets, toys and ipods. Regardless of what you know they will need, be sure to make a list for each child you are traveling with and check things off as they get packed. This ensures you do not forget something you know they will need and it keeps you from having to rebuy something once you arrive at your Lake Tahoe vacation rental.
- Search for kid friendly activities ahead of time
Depending on the ages of the children you are traveling with, you may want to research local activities for children during the day. From events at the library to local parks, there a lot of free things to do that children love. If it is summer time, you may want to look into easy hikes or beaches with items to rent that will get the kids in the water safely. If it is winter, you may want to try snowmobiling, inner-tubing or skiing. By looking things up ahead of time, you will know what is available, when it is available, how much it will cost and what items you need to bring specifically for this activity.
