2 of 11
If you're fortunate to live within driving distance of a state or national park, consider a multi-day hike. This is more arduous than backyard camping, but more rewarding in many ways. Enjoy the beauty of nature and come together as a family in a quiet, serene setting. Before you go, be prepared: Make sure to stock up on food and water, and pack rain gear. You won't even miss cable TV.
Look for a national park near you.
