Most families are juggling multiple schedules that seem to never tire. School, sports, friends ... the list goes on. It can be tough to get the family together for a day of quality time without being interrupted by something. Well, we’ve got a solution for you: pack up the car, get out of town, and spend the day outside. There’s nothing like a few hours on the trail or a night around the campfire to bring a family closer together. So next time you’re trying to rally the crew for some quality time, consider trying out one of these adventures.
