It’s too tough right now to take mother daughter vacations, but you can do some mother daughter day trips. You don’t need to travel far to have a special bonding moment with your daughter. It can be as easy as having a fun and simple mother-daughter weekend.

When trying to come up with some fun mother daughter day trips it’s important to think about a few things:

  1. Where can you both go that you will enjoy?
  2. What’s close to you that you can get to with ease?
  3. What’s a fun place to go together that you’ll want to go back again (and again)?

I remember when I was younger my mom would take us (my sister and I) on a fun mother daughter weekend. We would go to New Hampshire or Boston or a destination that we could get to in an hour or so drive. It was always so much fun. The older we got, the more we looked forward to these fun mother daughter trips.

Now that I have a daughter of my own, taking a mother daughter vacation is something I yearn to do with my Victoria. Right now we have to stick with mother daughter day trips, but I also know that day trips can be just as fun and just as special.
