By Michael Lanza
Want to guarantee that your kids are always excited about getting outdoors as a family? Find adventures that excite them. We adults tend to look for nice scenery, but that, by itself, isn’t always going to fire up a school-age child or teenager.

By thinking a little more about trip planning, parents can find places and activities that inspire everyone scenically and experientially.
