Let’s dust off those suitcases and grab your swimsuits, friends, because it’s time to plan those fantastic family vacations! We’re making memories here, people! You might have dozens of apps of your smartphone and tablets to keep the kids entertained and ward off backseat boredom, but there are a lot of great apps that parents need if they want smooth sailing during their next vacation. Traveling with your family can be stressful, so why not get a little help from the apps? It’s your vacation too! So whether it’s a week at the beach or a weekend at a waterpark, you need these apps!
Potty breaks made easy with Sit or Squat Restroom Finder- When you are traveling with kids, it’s inevitable that you will need to make lots of potty breaks; however, we’ve all had incidents with bathrooms that look more like a horror movie. This app helps you find a bathroom FAST and users rate the bathroom as Sit for positive reviews and Squat for negative reviews. You can even search for Family bathrooms and baby changing stations
Sweet dreams everyone with White Noise Baby- Since my kids were newborns, they have fallen asleep to white noise. When we travel, this handy app plays looped white noise (also conch shell and classical music) and our kids feel like they are at home. The white noise also comes in handy if you need to block out noises from the hallway when you’re staying in a hotel.
Help me plan my trip, Roadtrippers– I love when someone (or something) makes my life easier, don’t you? Roadtrippers app will help you map out your trip AND discover the best restaurants, scenic spots, attractions at hotels, and more through their database. Check out pictures, description, and reviews of each place you want to visit. You can even save your favorite trips and destinations for you next raodtrip.
Help me find everyone, Life360- If your kids are older and the’re beginning to venture out on their own during family vacations, Life360 can help you keep track of everyone with the help of this app. Find everyone in your “Circle” with real time updates of maps and check ins. So even if you are waiting on a text from a family member, you can check out their location. This app also comes in handy for lost phones.
Grab your suitcases, PackPoint- If you’re the one responsible for making sure everyone has enough underwear and socks for your vacay, you need PackPoint to make your packing lists easier! This handy app helps you organize what you need to pack based on length of travel, weather at your destination, and any activities planned during your trip–how cool is that? PackPoint will even remind you to pack an umbrella if there is rain in the forecast. Now you can pack, check items off your list, and not worry you are forgetting something!
All of these fantastic apps can be found on Google Play. I’d love to hear your favorite travel apps and where you are headed this summer on your family vacations!
