Turn Your Long-Distance Move El Paso into a Vacation

Long Distance Moving VacationBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

For young children, moves can be giant interesting escapades. Possibly a tad scary, yet in the end an opportunity to experience interesting things. And we, as adults, could learn from that. Moving to El Paso for many individuals is rather stressful. You work hard for a long time locating a new residence, packing everything you own, and getting ready the house you will be leaving to be left. Once the big day comes to load up the moving truck and begin on the excursion to your new house, you are most likely very worn out, anxious not to mention feeling like going for a long nap more than traveling for many hours in order to unbox everything yet again.

Hold on. You might be missing the trees for the forest here. The minute you close up that moving van to the moment it shows up in El Paso (a couple of days down the road) at your new house: You'll be free. And even better, you are already packed up for a road trip with your family. Instead of viewing this as the last long leg of the moving experience, consider it as a break. A reward you provide yourself and your children for accomplishing the difficult half of the move. Plus, you can accomplish it readily without breaking the bank.

Today, we're here to mention some suggestions on transforming your long-distance move to El Paso into a low-cost family holiday.

Picnic at Historical Markers

Among the ways to to incorporate a little relaxation not to mention fun to a required journey is to have a picnic. For the "low, low cost" of some sandwiches and sodas, you and your family can certainly settle somewhere sunny with picnic tables and enjoy a lovely afternoon. Our nation's freeway system is absolutely blanketed in fascinating little locations to stop, have a meal, and let your kids run around for a bit.

Our absolute favorite are historic markers. Important locations in which something historical occurred once. Many of them have a sizable sign, maybe a statue, and a couple of picnic tables next to a well-kept grassy area for play. A handful also have a play area or a little free of charge museum nearby to make an afternoon of it.

Check out Little Community Tourist Attractions

However if you would like to make this an affordable excursion your kids won't ever forget, conduct some searching for small-town sightseeing attractions. Take the kids to a local festival for cotton candy and merry-go-round rides at an enjoyably negligible cost. There's also countless strange and pleasant local tourist attractions. Gigantic peanut statues, fun tours of regional caverns, petting zoos, not to mention small-town water parks.

Your youngsters can have so much fun exploring the joys of small-town America that they fail to remember this journey carries a function other than vacationing. And, irrespective of how old and mature you are now, you are always allowed to relish riding carousels and petting pigs together with your youngsters.

Reserve a Charmingly Affordable Room

Needless to say, if you take time to play on the road trip, without a doubt you will probably need to find somewhere to sleep for a overnight or two along the way. And this needn't be pricey either. Road tripping provides you with the ability to stay in small town hotels. You might notice these are apt to have snacks inside the lobby, be brightly lit and well-cleaned, and maintain a better quality at decreased costs versus urban accommodations. Put simply, charmingly affordable.

It is possible to get a two-queen room together with the standard features for under $75 a night. Or, with a little innovative searching in vacation rental applications for instance Airbnb or perhaps VRBO, you just might find an affordable gem, a little bungalow or neighborhood flat for much less compared to local room prices.

Head to Museums and Theme Parks

And in case you truly have plenty of time and a little extra moving budget to have fun, then you could possibly decide on a full day of marvelous times in a larger destination. You can undoubtedly locate a children's interactive science museum where your children can create gigantic bubbles or even crawl around inside an atomic model for the cost of a family day pass.

You can even bring your kids to a real amusement park. Medium-small towns often times have a local amusement park that is just as fun but much less commercialized and expensive as opposed to big-name parks. When you know where to find one, your family could have the time of their life riding roller coasters and playing games, making this move the best thing that's transpired in a long time.


The road trip necessary for long-distance moving doesn't need to be a stress-filled drive while your children fuss about being stuck inside the car. Instead of stressing out, make a holiday of it! Visit parks. Have a picnic or perhaps go into bistros. Arrange relaxing small-town lodgings and find the interesting lesser-known galleries and museums and theme parks to investigate. And whatever you decide to do, remember to kick your feet up at some point and relax before getting back in the driver's seat.

This long-distance move to El Paso could be the getaway you need before reaching a new residence to unpack and establish your family life someplace completely new.
