There is this Happy Island called Aruba!  I’m sure most of you have heard about Aruba, but do you know some things to do in Aruba?  There’s so many things, it’s making me get the travel bug.  Now, I want to head for Aruba.  If you’re thinking of traveling to Aruba I’m jealous, but I am also going to share a few family friendly things to do in Aruba.

Its summer, and I don’t know about you but I start thinking about vacations with the family.  There is nothing that I would rather do than spend time with my family on a stress-free vacation.  Oh sure, there’s the small things.  You know, if we travel by car I can count on the fact that someone will need to stop everyone hour for the restroom, or that someone will complain because someone else is breathing on them.

Seriously, when I’m headed for vacation that’s nothing I can handle all of it with a smile, until they set in with the “are we there yet.” OMG, which drives me nuts I have a toddler and 7 year old that do it just to drive mom bonkers.  It’s still worth it, because when we stop the car for something fun I can make them stay in the car, lol.  Okay, I wouldn’t do that but I sure will tell them I will.  That will get them to stop, maybe.  Anyway, I have something really fun to share with you.  I hope you’re super excited, I know I am.

If you’re thinking of heading to the happy island, and looking for things to do in Aruba I think you will enjoy these activates.

Horseback rides on the beach: Who doesn’t want to ride a horse on the beaches of Aruba?  How much fun.

Walks on the beach: There is nothing that helps clear your mind better that a walk on the beach.

Hiking: You can explore twenty miles of trails in the awesome Arikok National Park

Golf: If you love golf that I’m sure you’re going to be checking out the course in Aruba.

Tour the island: Jump in an air conditioned motor coach or head out on a jeep sapphire.

Watch the water: No, this is not crazy.  The sea in Aruba is known for its calm, glittering turquoise waters.  How relaxing, sitting on the beach, listening and watching the beach that looks like that. WOW!  Did you know that Aruba’s beaches have wide shaded expanses, retreats, and sunbathing and water sports meccas?  There’s the seven mile strip that along the west coast that includes resorts and plenty of fun activates to keep you busy.

Get in the water: Enjoy swimming, kitesurfing, tubing, snorkeling, waterskiing, parasailing, banana-boating, and more all at the Aruba beaches.

Visit the underdeveloped beaches: Not all the beaches of Aruba are packed with things to do.  You can also visit the underdeveloped beaches of Aruba.  You will find coves that are carved out of limestone, which have been formed by the crashing of the waves.  There is a strong under town on these beaches, so you might want to consider this before jumping in, but it can be something worth seeing.

Shopping: There is plenty of shopping to be done, and even discounts of 10 – 35% off international brand names.  There is jewelry store-lined streets, upscale malls, and so much more.

Food: You will not have a problem finding somewhere to eat.  Aruba is known for its abundance of restaurants with world class chefs, and amazing wines.  There is more than 100 resort and independent restaurants, the largest issue you will run into is where to eat.

Events: There is plenty of events in Aruba, the calendar is filled with food and music festivals, traditional holiday celebration, international tournaments, Caribbean festivals, films, art, competitions, regattas, sporting events, and so much more fun.

Nightlife: Be sure to spend some time checking out the fun nightlife.  Enjoy casual beach and pier bars, and be sure to take advantage of their daily happy hours, and other awesome specials.  There’s plenty to do, I’m sure you will have fun.

If you’re looking for things to do in Aruba I personally think you’ll be fine.  You’re probably going to worry more about how much you can fit in, rather than what to do.
