Spend a weekend away in your own backyard. You don't need a big place for a big adventure. All you'll need is a tent and your family to join you. Pitch the tent, bring some flashlights, ghost stories and enjoy the time away from the world and with your kids. Have the adults or older kids be prepared to tell some ghost stories in advance to add a real sense of the outdoors.
