Top Christian Spots to Take Your Family on Vacation
Are you looking for a vacation spot for your family that will not only offer you rest, but one that will also inspire you to draw closer to God? Many families are taking advantage of their vacation days to take trips to places where they can learn more about God and teach their children about his goodness.
With the Bible providing clear descriptions for believers and historians, tourists can visit Biblical destinations today, as well as tourist venues designed specifically with the Bible in mind. As a family, these vacation spots are sure to bring you closer to one another and your savior.
Israel is the ultimate bucket list destination for Christians, because they are able to travel the same roads Jesus traveled and see Biblical locations first-hand. When you visit Israel, you can also visit locations such as the Mount of Olives and the Sea of Galilee. Giving your family the opportunity to see these Biblical locations will be eye-opening and life-changing. Planning a family trip to the Holy Land is quite an undertaking; however, seeing where Jesus was born and where he died are worth it for many.
Another Biblical expedition is to travel to Greece which will allow your family to follow in Paul’s footsteps as the New Testament church became established. Many companies offer a tour of Paul’s path, which includes visits to locations such as Philippi, Thessaloniki, Corinth and Athens where you can visit the places where Paul preached. This is not only a beautiful place to take a vacation, it is also one that is packed full of Biblical and historical value. For some families, this trip is a once-in-a-lifetime vacation, so planning ahead is a must.
