When you have paid for your Canal Boat Holiday any other costings can be surprisingly economical as what you spend is entirely up to you.

Although there are some wonderful attractions and places to visit on your Canal Boat Holiday you really do not need to spend a fortune to have a brilliant time.

A Canal Boat Holiday is an excellent way of getting closer to nature so why not see how many species of birds, plants or wildlife you can spot.

The kids will love to carry a note book around so that they can keep a record of what they have seen.

They will also love to go dipping and it is well worth buying some cheap nets, the type you see at the seaside, for this.

With the latest technology in cameras taking photos is easy so why not organise a competition, get everyone to take pictures and have awards or prizes for the best.

Just moor somewhere and then set off as a family and spend the whole day exploring the wonderful countryside.

Time spent together in the evenings can be great fun bring some board games and a pack of cards and go back to your childhood with a game of Old Maid or Buckaroo.

If you all need to let off some steam have a game of a ball or throw a Frisbee around.

Each Canal Boat has an on board entertainment system so pack a supply of DVDs and CDs.

There are 1000s of free family events happening all around the country and with internet access these can easily be found.

Do some internet research, it is well worth the time, to discover a wealth of free attractions and free family days out whilst on your Canal Boat Holiday.
