Do be aware that if you’re traveling with the kids in tow then a museum can also be a great choice. Particularly, if it is pouring down and the pool is off limits. You might even find that there’s a museum close by that is specifically designed to be interactive enough to keep the little ones entertained and excited by all the different possibilities. 

Explore The Hotel 

Alternatively, you could spend a rainy day exploring what your hotel has to offer. Or, if you’re staying somewhere like Disney World then you can wander to all the different Disney hotels. The theme park complex is great for hotel hopping because there are so many and they all have their different themes. This includes unique choices to eat and entertainment options. It’s just a matter of finding the perfect one for you to wile away a few hours while you wait for the weather to get back on track. This is also why you should think about booking a hotel with an indoor pool and other amenities available. 

Head Out Shopping 

Make sure that you do checkout the exchange rates for the country that you are visiting. You might find that things are a lot cheaper compared to at home and it can be a great saving. In contrast, if the exchange rate is in the wrong direction things can be far more expensive and it’s best to avoid doing too much shopping.

You need to go off the beaten path here too. For instance, you should explore little boutique shops. These are more likely to sell items and products that you won’t find at other places around the world. 

Go To The Cinema 

Finally, if it starts to rain while you’re traveling then you could think about heading to the cinema. Cinemas are a great choice for rainy day leisure options and you can also enjoy a film while having a bite to eat. In America, there are even restaurant theaters that will bring you a full meal to your seat while you’re watching a great movie. Don’t forget, if you are visiting a new country you can also use theaters to explore a taste of the local culture with films you won’t find at home. 

As you can see, there are a few rainy day leisure options to consider if you’re stuck with bad weather while on holiday. It doesn’t have to be a total wash out.
