5 Tips for Family Travel

How to enjoy life's everyday moments on the road.


1. Capture the Moment

If your kids don’t like posing for the family vacation pictures, let them direct some shots as a reward -- after getting at least one you love, of course.

2. Stay Entertained

Make a game out of looking for funny signs when you’re on vacation. Take pictures to share because you never know what you’re going to see!

3. Make Memories

Break up a road trip vacation by stopping at one place each family member chooses along the route. Be sure to allow time for spontaneous exploring as well.

4. Start Traditions

Explore traditions from countries your family has visited or plans to visit someday. Include your favorite one in your own celebrations.

5. Share the Moment in the Moment

The new GoCards app from Hallmark lets you send real Hallmark cards from your phone to their mailbox. Even better? You can personalize the message and add a family photo from your smartphone, which makes it perfect to send to grandma!
