(HealthDay News) -- Vacations are meant to provide rest and relaxation, but that doesn't mean fitness can't be part of your adventure, too.

An active vacation can include hiking, swimming, camping or walking tours.

Here are suggestions to consider when planning an active vacation, courtesy of the Nemours Foundation:

  • Choose a destination based on your family's needs and interests.
  • Get the kids involved in the itinerary.
  • Leave electronic games at home and pack healthy snacks for car rides.
  • While you're waiting at the airport, walk around to pass the time.
