Long Distance Moving VacationBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

For youngsters, moves tend to be giant exciting adventures. Perhaps a tad scary, but ultimately a possibility to experience interesting things. And we, as adults, could learn from that. Moving to Houston for most of us is quite stressful. You work hard for weeks selecting a new residence, packing all you own, and getting ready the residence you will be leaving behind to be left. Once the big day arrives to load up the truck and commence on the road trip to your new house, you are probably very worn out, anxious in addition to feeling like going for a lengthy nap more than driving for a number of hours to unbox everything yet again.

But wait. You might be missing the trees for the forest here. The instant you close up the moving truck to the point it gets there in Houston (a few days in the future) to your new home: You are free. And perhaps better, you are already packed up for a road trip with the family. Rather than viewing this as the last long portion of your moving experience, consider it as a getaway. A prize you provide yourself and your youngsters for finishing the tough half of the move. And, it can be done readily without having to break the bank.

Today, we are here to mention some tips on turning your long-distance move to Houston into a low-cost family vacation.

Outdoor Picnic at Historic Markers

One of the easiest ways to include a little leisure along with fun to a necessary road trip is to have a picnic. At the "low, low cost" of a few sandwiches and sodas, you and the family members can certainly settle someplace full of sunshine with picnic tables and have a lovely afternoon. Our nation's freeway system is unquestionably covered in appealing little spots to stop, have lunch or dinner, and let your little ones play for a bit.

Our favorite are historic markers. Fascinating locations in which something significant happened previously. Many of them have a big sign, possibly a statue, and a few tables near to a well-kept grassy spot for play. A handful even have a playground or even a small cost-free museum nearby to make a day of it.

Check out Little Community Tourist Attractions

However if you would like to make this an inexpensive adventure your children won't ever forget, do some hunting for small-town sightseeing opportunities. Take the kids to a local carnival for funnel cakes and carousel rides at an enjoyably nominal expense. Additionally, there are a large number of unique and delightful local tourist attractions. Tremendous balls of string, entertaining tours of nearby caverns, petting zoos, plus small-town water parks.

Your kids could have so much fun exploring the joys of small-town America that they forget this journey has a goal apart from vacationing. And, regardless of how old and grown up you are now, you'll be always permitted to enjoy riding Ferris wheels and petting pigs in the company of your children.

Arrange a Charmingly Affordable Room

Needless to say, if you take time to have fun playing on the journey, undoubtedly you will also have to find someplace to sleep for a overnight or two along the way. And this doesn't have to be expensive either. Road tripping creates the chance to stop in small town motels. You might notice they're more prone to have goodies in the lobby, be brightly illuminated and well-cleaned, and maintain a superior quality at lower rates versus city hotels. In other words, charmingly affordable.

It is possible to get a two-queen room with the customary comforts for less than $75 a night. Or perhaps, with some innovative browsing inside trip rental applications such as Airbnb or VRBO, you just might find an economical treasure, a little cottage or neighborhood apartment for significantly less as opposed to local room costs.

Head to Museums and Amusement Parks

And if you have time and a little extra moving budget to have a good time, then you might spend a complete day of magnificent times in a more substantial point of interest. You can unquestionably find a children's interactive science museum where your family can make enormous bubbles or perhaps crawl around in an atomic model for the price of a family day pass.

You can even bring your kids to a real theme park. Medium-small cities often have a local amusement park that's just as fun but significantly less commercialized and expensive than the big-name theme parks. By knowing where to find one, your children might have the time of their life riding roller coasters and playing games, making this move the neatest thing that's came about in a long time.


The road trip necessary for long-distance moving doesn't have to be a stress-filled drive while your kids bicker about remaining stuck in the car. As an alternative to stressing out, make a holiday of it! Stop at parks. Have picnics or maybe go into restaurants. Arrange cozy small-town accommodations and look for the cool lesser-known museums and theme parks to investigate. And whatever you do, don't forget to kick your feet up sooner or later and chill out before getting back in the driver's seat.

This long-distance move to Houston might be the holiday you need prior to arriving at a new home to unpack and establish your family life somewhere completely new.
