Indoor Family Vacation Activities | RTX Traveler Magazine

Some winter days are just meant to be spent inside. Whether it’s because of dreary winter weather, shortened daylight hours or a frigid breeze, there are bound to be times during a winter vacation that the whole family needs to stay indoors. Here are some ideas for indoor winter activities that the whole family can enjoy. Try these on your next winter trip or at home over the holidays.

  1. Get educated. Visit a museum or aquarium that the whole family will enjoy.
  2. Let your inner child come out and play. Check out area arcades, bowling alleys and other indoor amusement centers.
  3. Take in a movie. 3-D flicks on a big screen are a great family vacation activity.
  4. Pajama party. Order pizza delivery and stay snuggled in your pajamas all day.
  5. Bake off. Use your unit’s fully equipped kitchen to bake cookies, brownies, cakes and/or pies. Team up or have individual competitions to see who has the best skills with the whisk.
  6. Fitness can be fun! Use the resort’s indoor pool, hot tub and/or fitness room to get your heart rate up and keep warm from the cold.
  7. Resort Activities. Many resorts offer indoor activities for kids and adults. Check with the front desk for a weekly schedule in case the weather keeps you in.
  8. Board games. Check with the resort to see about renting board games and make an evening of it. It’s always a good idea to bring one or two favorites from home on your trip, or turn to a few classics that don’t require equipment, like Charades or Telephone.
  9. Shop til you drop. Find out where the nearest indoor mall is, and give everyone a budget. Make it a competition to see who can find the best deals, or make a scavenger hunt.
  10. Book club. Find an age-appropriate book that everyone can enjoy, and read it together.
