Fun Travel Scavenger Hunt

Add this travel scavenger hunt to your list of travel games when you head out on the road or across the ocean.  Kids travel activities are always fun to have on hand in the airport, waiting for the ferry or on the bus.  

Tired of hearing "when can we get out of here" over and over again when you are traveling with teens or kids? If you pull out a travel game, you can pass those waiting hours having fun rather than getting frustrated and pulling your hair out!

A travel scavenger hunt is a fun way to keep your family or group engaged throughout your entire trip. The clues can be stretched out over the entire length of your travels or you can choose to have a "scavenger hunt day" in the midst of your trip. 

This fun hunt will definitely keep them on their toes as they seek to complete the list of travel activities below. The list is extensive to take into consideration all forms of travel so pick and choose what will work for you.
