As warmer weather approaches, we’re all looking to get outdoors and enjoy some fresh air. What better way to get the kids (and yourself) unplugged from technology than a family-friendly hike through nature?
We’ve chosen one spot from nine different states in the Northeast that we think is perfect for a hike – even for the littlest family members. Some have amenities like picnic areas and museums, a few are accessible with outdoor wheelchairs and strollers, and one walk goes right through some ruins of an abandoned castle!
Of course, before your beautiful stroll through nature, make sure you stop by your local Ocean State Job Lot for supplies! You might be surprised to learn that we have almost everything you need to make your family-friendly hike comfortable, safe, and fun!
You’ll love our selection of car-ride supplies like wet wipes, snacks, puzzle books, and activities for the kids. For your hike, pick up a pair of binoculars and bring along some lightweight camp chairs, water shoes, and a cooler for a quick picnic! We’ve even got compression sleeves, insoles, and comfy hiking socks for those of us who haven’t been hiking in a while.
Don’t forget sunscreen, insect repellent, lip balm, and first aid supplies like antibiotic ointment and bandages, just in case. Keep everything in one of our spacious totes, and you’ll always be ready for an impromptu road trip!
