Plan an Active VacationDo you like to hike, bike walk, run, kayak or swim? There are vacation destinations that will provide hours of physical activity for you and your family. Consider a hotel with a pool, a water park destination, back packing, river rafting, walking tours, or participating in a race (5k, 10k, half-marathon or full marathon) as a runner or walker.

Keep the following in mind when planning an active vacation:

1. The ages, abilities and skill level of those going and what is realistic for each family member.

2. Equipment and attire, for example, proper shoes (running shoes, hiking boots, sturdy walking shoes, water shoes) and clothing (shorts, swimsuit).

3. Check ahead of time to verify what is included at the site or tour; equipment, meals, the hours, lockers, guided tours, group tours, rental fees, package deals, minimum age, minimum height, and any health limitations or risks.

4. Involve the whole family in the planning and keep the focus on having FUN!
