Traveling with Family

Traveling with the Family

Traveling, enjoying life, making memories with family and friends, and other assorted family members can be inspiring and memorable. Multigenerational travel is a goal for families who seek togetherness in both near and faraway places.

Take your family on a journey to remember!

Multigenerational trips allow families to discover new destinations and cultures and generally have fun together, making beautiful memories!

When planning for a trip that includes grandparents, adult children, and grandchildren, you’ll want to consider accommodations and ease of travel. You may wish to have designed just for you, special family-friendly activities that are both fun and educational, to make sure your family has fun while traveling.

There are some wonderful companies that have unique itineraries and suggested itineraries from which to choose. How about a scavenger hunt through the Louvre or macaroon making in Paris? Some ideas are a river cruise through some of the unique parts of Europe. Yes, there are a few dates set aside for river cruising with children. Also, how about an African Safari! “Family” safari drives—even in open vehicles—can accommodate children ages of five and above. There are also a ton of fun activities for kids, like Bug CSI with a field ranger, painting, and coloring, making pizzas, impromptu soccer games, and viewing the night sky.

Would you like rest and relaxation that also offers lots of fun for everyone? How about an all-inclusive vacation to the beach! Arrive at your luxury villa or resort and enjoy being pampered. Your all-inclusive package will include transportation, transfers to your accommodation, meals, snacks, beverages (yes, adult beverages too!), entertainment, non-motorized motorsports, and much more!

If you are a "foodie", and enjoy trying different cuisines or perhaps some wine or beer tasting, there is a trip just for you!

If you desire to stay closer to home, you can get close to nature at a state or national park. How about an escorted trip through our national parks! There are tours designed just for families. You are all taken care of, and you sit back and enjoy everything about the trip! Another idea would be to take a rail trip. Perhaps through the Southwest or national parks. Another popular rail trip would be the Rocky Mountaineer, through Canada.

You’ll want to prearrange all of this to ensure availability!

As I write this, we are going through the pandemic, and travel seems so far off. Don’t forget to dream and do a little “armchair” traveling. Get inspired for the time when you do feel comfortable traveling again. I think that will be next year! How about you?
