Hike, bike, walk, visit museums, play sports with the locals, picnic, volunteer, clean trash up, surf, canoe, take public transportation, or visit parks and zoos. Observe the wildlife, recycle, count cows, let your kids hold the map. Remember the old road trip game slug bug? Try out the new variation where you replace VW bugs with hybrids.
As jharp mentioned there are a lot of things you can do – i’d say the most important thing is to try to instill a sense of love and wonderment in them about their natural surroundings and encourage them to learn as much as they can about the environment so that in the future they’ll act to protect it.
You could look into planning a trip that includes volunteering. This is a new fad among people who want to do more than just SEE the sights when they visit a place. Rather than being passive tourists, “voluntourism” allows you to interact with your destination in a more meaningful way. Helping out physically (not just contributing your vacation $$$ to the local community) can make the trip more memorable and more genuine.
I don’t know how old your kids are, but you can find “voluntourism” opportunities all over the place. Search online for your specific destination ideas, or look at voluntourism.org to help GET some ideas!
