Whether you and your kids are simply heading out for a roll around the neighborhood, are venturing uphill for a mountain biking adventure, or taking a bike taxi to a local baseball game, there is plenty of fun to be had biking. If you're visiting a new city, consider renting bikes as a way to tour the area.
Ready for a retro good time? Tie up some roller blades at a local skating rink and groove to some '70s- and '80s-style music, while the lights flicker and the disco ball spins.
Roller blading was super big in the '90s, but that kind of fun never goes out of style. Get your family into a set of roller blades and go in-line skating down the boardwalk or around a local park. Check Craig's List or a second-hand sports store to get your hands on a pair of skates at a retro price!
Razor scooters are all the rage with kids from preschool to high school. They are sleek, lean, easy to ride and fun for all. What's not to love? Check out inexpensive razor scooters at stores like Target or Wal-Mart.
A Segway or a Vespa can also be a really cool way to have fun on wheels… but they are practical, too! If you are considering cutting back the family vehicle to just one car, adding a Segway or a Vespa can be the perfect eco-friendly (and fun!) substitution to a gas-guzzling SUV.
Go-karting is some wholesome fun that the whole family will love. Research go-kart racing facilities in your town or a city you're planning to visit and spend the day zipping around high-speed tracks with the speed-demons in your family.
Who says a family can't have fun on a road trip? Consider renting a convertible for a day and exploring your city or a nearby town with the top down. Let the wind blow through your family's hair as you discover the open road in a new set of wheels.
