The first few months of school are officially under our belts and it’s time for a break! Fall Break is the perfect time to get some much-needed reprieve from the busyness of school, activities, and sports that can leave our heads spinning. This year, our team at Beach Water Sports recommends you plan a week enjoying the warm weather in Jupiter, Florida to give yourself the strength needed to make it to Christmas Break. Read on for our top three tips to vacation like a pro.
1. Plan Ahead
While we love spontaneity as much as the next person, vacations tend to go smoother when you at least have a general idea of the activities and excursions you want to do. So, instead of waking up every morning and trying to decide what to do, plan ahead and book your excursions so you know they’ll be available for your family to enjoy. Consider renting jet skis, paddle boards, kayaks, or even a boat for a whole day out on the water.
2. Research Your Location
Another component that separates the novice from the pro vacationer is research. Before you head south, look up a few restaurants you know your family would enjoy. Think out of the box on this one and try to find a few that are away from the hustle and bustle of the Fall Break crowd. You’ll be glad you found that little hole-in-the-wall burger joint when everyone else is facing an hour’s wait time on the main drag.
3. Have a Back-up Plan
Finally, nothing can derail a vacation day faster than not planning for the unexpected. Sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate, the activity you had planned doesn’t work out or the family just doesn’t feel like spending the day shopping. Whatever the issue, having a backup plan will save the day and keep you from feeling like a first-time vacationer. Look up a few ideas such as visiting local zoos or interesting landmarks to keep in your back pocket in case of a vacation emergency.
