We have a lot of favorite destinations that we like to travel to every summer on our family camping trips.

Winter recreation doesn’t have to be expensive, and you don’t have to invest in skis or snowshoes to get out for an easy family-friendly hike.

You might find the kids actually prefer hiking during the winter!
