The end of February is just around the corner, and with the brutal winter that much of the country has seen this year, many families are beginning to map out their spring break or summer vacations. Read on for a few tips about how to plan your family trip smart and make the most out of the vacation time together.
Make a travel wish list—wherever you’re going, talk to everybody in the family and see what they’re interested in doing there? Dad wants to visit revolutionary wartime pubs, Mom wants to see a Shakespeare in Boston Common, our ten year old wants to see the USS Constitution, and the 5 year old wants icecream. Done. Our family should be staying in Marriott’s Custom House.
Research, research, research—should our travel route include freeways or scenic drives? Should we plan to travel early, midday or evening? Finding the best flights and deciding where to eat aren’t in the same category, but researching both will let you make the most out of your limited time. TripAdvisor has some great ideas for destinations, itineraries, and attractions.
Choose a destination for everyone—cruises and theme parks like Disneyland or Disneyworld often make family vacations easier. Adults aren’t just sitting around waiting for kids to get done riding rollercoasters—there are exciting options for everyone, like spending the night in a treehouse, or strolling around the Food and Wine festivals at Epcot.
Memorable vacations can occur in any destination, but choosing one that fits your family’s interests, budgetary limitations, and accommodation preferences will help ensure that spending several days at a time with your family is not just bearable—it’s enjoyable! Places like New York City can exhilarate, while any number of Hawaii timeshare resale resorts will bathe you in the lap of luxury and exquisite tranquility. You just have to find which works for you.
That’s where research comes in! Especially if you’re thinking about buying or selling a timeshare resale, please do your research before transferring money or signing contracts. Using a licensed real estate agent in good reputation who NEVER CHARGES UPFRONT FEES is a good way to avoid scams, and talking your vacation options over with someone who is not a high-pressure salesperson can help you explore what may be right for your family.
