Here are few tips you can use when vacationing in Croatia with your family.

Travel Light: When planning to visit several cities, it is advisable to take only the essentials. You are not likely to find it enjoyable dragging heavy bags and luggage from a place to another.

Plan Enough Days: It is recommended that you spend at least four days for your vacation. You will have only little fun when you restrict your trip to a day or two with many places to explore.

Ask The Locals: In addition to whatever recommendation of places to visit you might have been provided online, you will do better to always ask the local people. They know better.
Walk: It is advised that you consider walking from place to place. This will afford you the opportunity to better explore interesting places in Croatia.

Take Naps: This is also advised after your morning sessions of exploring places. It is particularly useful for your kids before you continue later in the day.
Refreshments: The children could lose interest while visiting different places. It helps to have ice cream or a snack ready to lift their spirits.
