It is that time of the year when most kids are at home enjoying their summer holidays. It can be taxing for parents to entertain their kids all day. And especially ,when most children these days have short attention span,and get bored easily. To organise a trip outside, one needs to spend a good amount of money. But a short trip to some nearby tourist spot is not only easy on the pocket but also a good idea to get them happy and interested. Surajkund is ideal for a day picnic with family and friends. These three places can be wrapped up before the sun sets in.
