I have come up with 10 of the most common pitfalls you should try and avoid… and gave alternatives that will help ensure your family has a blast and not a nightmare story to tell later!
Save the zoo for when it’s a little yucky outside. Believe it or not, many times the animals are WAY more active when it’s colder and not as sunny.
Beach will likely have jellyfish in July and August. If you need a beach day and can’t drive all the way to Ocean City, visit a lake beach instead.
Thomas the Train events can be super over crowded and can easily overwhelm even the most ardent train lover.
The best time to purchase tickets for Santa Trains and the Nutcracker is early September (or the earliest they become available).
It won’t be very special though if you go on a Saturday in August and you spend over half your time waiting in line.
