Planning and taking a family vacation requires a lot of effort, don’t you think? From choosing the destination to wrangling the kids and packing your bags in the car (and making sure you haven’t forgotten anything!) before you hit the road, vacations take a lot of time to execute seamlessly.
All that hassle has us thinking it might just be a safer bet to round up a solid list of vacation-themed movies that you and your family can watch together this summer. Plus, watching a movie is a great way to cool off on particularly hot days.
Skip the family vacation and, instead, live vicariously through the highs and lows of famous movie families who embarked on hilarious (or downright scary!) vacations full of hijinks and adrenaline. No two vacation-themed movies are the same, which means your family will never get bored.
From Vacation to Jaws, these family vacation movies are must-sees this summer.
