Planning Tips for Multi-Generational Day Trips:

--  Let everyone help decide upon the outing. This keeps the whole family

--  Figure out a budget for your day trip. If the whole family is going,
    it could be expensive. It might be best to find a free or low cost outing
    like a local harvest festival or a stroll through a state park.
--  Prepare for different energy levels. Balance more rigorous activities
    with some low-key activities throughout the day.
--  Give the children cameras -- the disposable ones are great. This way
    you will have photos of everyone on the trip, from all sorts of angles.
