Summer vacation ideas for dads

As summer approaches, you may be dying to take a vacation. As a dad, taking a week off is more difficult than it was in your younger days. But that doesn't mean you still can't go on a trip with your kids. All it takes is a little creativity and you and your family can be experiencing a little well deserved R&R this summer.

With that in mind, here are a few options for that perfect trip.

1. Disney World. It may seem cliche, but it's one of the most popular spots for a reason. It has something for everyone – you'll love the sun and warm weather and they'll love seeing their favorite characters up close.

2. Camping. What better way teach your kids the value of self-reliance than to take them into the wilderness? They'll learn firsthand about the beauty of nature, and you'll get to enjoy some time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Win, win.

3. Hall of Fame road trip. Does your kids love sports? Yes? A hall of fame road trip is a great way to teach him or her about the history of various games. Going from the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts all the way to the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio (with a stop for Baseball in Cooperstown) can be a great bonding experience.
