Vacation picnic tips

india Updated: Mar 03, 2010 02:54 IST

Whether you’re touring a garden in Florence or a Florida theme park, dining outdoors can be a great vacation adventure.

Here are tips to prepare a picnic:

The right location is critical. Beautiful views and atmosphere will leave you feeling posh instead of poor. Enjoy leisurely snacks while perched on a cliff in Petra, or lounge on the piazza in Pisa.
In theme parks and playgrounds, look for quiet sites with easy access to restrooms, nature trails, etc.

Shop local to keep things simple. Italy is a great place to enjoy a picnic of wine, cheese, fruit and bread. In the Middle East, pair tea with hummus, eggplant spread, flatbreads and dates.

Use available tools: Backpackers can drop a sarong on the grass and groove with a wine cork, collapsible bowls and plates. Business travellers may find it simpler to feast on street stall meals with a refillable water bottle on the nearest park bench. Those with access to a kitchen and car can enjoy a scenic drive with a full picnic basket.
