Summer is full of opportunities to relax and have fun. It’s also one time of the year when there tends to be a bit more time for play, with kids off on summer break and families planning vacations. Much of the fun times to be had involve water activities, especially here in the Ozarks. What better way to escape the heat than a day on the lake or a dip in the pool?

It’s good to keep in mind, however, that water activities come with risk. Every year people are injured or die due to drowning or boat-related accidents. With that in mind we wanted to offer everyone a few safety tips, ideas, and reminders to keep you and those you love safe this summer.

  1. Never let anyone swim alone. It doesn’t matter how strong a swimmer you might be, it’s always safer to swim in twos. Make this a family rule that is strictly followed

  2. Never drink while boating, swimming, skiing, or operating other watercraft. Alcohol is a known contributing factor in many drownings.
  3. When boating, always have everyone wear a life jacket. It doesn’t matter how good a swimmer you are, this simple precaution can be life-saving.

  4. Have a strong “no-horseplay” rule around water, including around the pool, on the shore, in the water, and on the boat. Kids in particular can get excited and forget the danger around them.

  5. Ban headfirst diving. Diving in feet-first is always safer, even in pools. If you do dive in other bodies of water, make sure you know the depth, that the water isn’t murky, and that there are no rocks anywhere near the dive path or water below.

  6. Always watch children around water, no matter how good a swimmer they are. Even if they are wearing flotation devices, kids should always be closely supervised.

  7. Don’t swim during a storm. If you hear thunder or see lightning, get out of the water immediately.

  8. Consider taking a CPR class, especially if you spend a lot of time on adventures with your family. This is a life-saving skill that you never know if you need.

  9. Set time limits on water-time. Children don’t always realize how tired they are or don’t want to miss out on any fun. This can be dangerous, however, so set time limits and make sure kids get out, rest, and recharge.

  10. Have your children take a swimming and water safety course. This is a fun way to learn how to stay safe in water from the experts.

Remember, no matter how long you’ve been swimming or boating, accidents happen. It only takes a moment for a good time to turn bad. So always be diligent and make sure that your summer is full of safe family fun.

Family-friendly adventure

You don’t have to travel across the globe for an adventure. There is a world of fun awaiting you, just a short drive away. You can have a high-flying time at a zip line, take in a live magic show, or watch amazing acrobats from the far east – all just a few minutes from your room.

Step back in time, and into excitement

One of Branson’s most popular attractions is Silver Dollar City, and we’re just a couple minutes away. This 1880s-themed amusement park is fun for all ages and has everything from period arts and crafts to live entertainment and thrill rides.

Fine food with all the fixings

There is no shortage of dining options in Branson. You can treat yourself to fine food in a variety of cuisine, or you can enjoy the best of comfort food with all the fixings. And if you’re in the mood for more, there are places where you can see a show while you eat – there’s even a showboat that takes you for a cruise while you eat!

It can be difficult to balance work and family, especially when it comes to planning a family getaway.  By planning your adventure close to home, you get the best of all words – family fun that’s affordable, flexible, and exciting!

Planning a vacation can be fun, but more often than not it is a stressful and frustrating experience. If you’re planning a vacation for your family, this can be compounded by trying to create a vacation that will please everyone.

While there is no secret to making everyone happy, there are some steps you can take as you plan to make the entire process easier. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Pre-Planning

Ask everyone for not only their ideal vacation, but a few alternatives that would make them happy as well. This gives you a Plan B should you need some flexibility while planning. Having a fallback position for everyone will also help you gauge where their priorities really are.

As you plan

Before you book anything, come up with an itinerary of your trip. Include any activities you’re planning along the way, and let everyone take a look. Seeing everything laid out makes it easier to imagine what the trip will really be like. This also gives everyone a second chance to weigh in on plans before you’ve made any commitments.

Consider free time

Sometimes family members have diverse interests that can’t really be addressed in a single outing. If this seems like your family, consider scheduling some free time for individuals to explore. For instance, if your spouse likes golf but you and the kids want to spend time at a water park, split up for part of the day and enjoy. There’s no rule that says you have to do everything together.
