TAKE A ROAD TRIP

If you’re itching to get out of town, we have some great road trip ideas for you.

Close to Home

Saugatuck, St. Joseph, and South Haven are our “go-to” beach towns for family fun. Each  town offers their own unique feel and beach vibe. Plus, they’re all just 1 hour to 1 and 1/2 away.  We have ideas on discovering, dining, and playing in each of these local resort towns. Reader tip: head out early to get a parking spot if you plan to head to the beach.

Further Away, but Worth the Drive

Our KZOOkids writing team ventured out over Spring Break to get the insider scoop on some other road trips. Find out why we LOVED our adventures in Detroit and Milwaukee. More of a drive, but definitely tons of family fun options!
