Get over Shimla and Manali, as we have more beautiful places for family vacations in India

Travelling with families can be a wonderful experience! When we travel with our families, we get to know each other in an altogether different manner. Taking a small family vacation can be one of the best ways to de-stress, as it takes everybody away from a hectic schedule and helps bond well with each other. Siblings mock each other; parents take little ones along with a tedious list of do’s and don’ts, and grandparents add the cheer, creating the perfect playful environment.   But where should you go for your next family vacation? The usual places, be it the hills or the beaches, have become crowded over the years. They have also run out of interesting things to do, making the trip sometimes boring and monotonous for people who are on the look out for some adventure. To help you in this fix, we bring you a list of lesser-known but low-budget family trips in India.
