As our children grow up, we delight in taking them for big and little trips - whether it's a weekend at the shore, a week at the mountains, or big family trip to a theme park. When children get to middle and high school, planning family vacation becomes much more difficult - extra curricular activities, sports, dating, after school jobs and teenage angst all create hurdles to enjoying family time longer than dinner together on Sunday evening.
Travel is the world's best teacher...period!
Cuba is an ideal vacation destination choice for families who yearn for amazing adventures together.
Traveling to Cuba feels more like "time travel" than a typical travel experience. It's where you find strangers to greet you with a warm "Hola!". It's a place where families feel safe and welcomed. Vintage cars drive gritty streets lined with breathtaking ornate Spanish colonial buildings that harken back to a previous era of glory. Hike or horseback through the rolling hills of Viñales covered with organic coffee and tobacco farms. From UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the music, the food to stunning white sand beaches with teaming reefs, the family adventures waiting for you in Cuba are endless.
If you are a horse lover, then you completely understand the need to be around them as much as possible. A family vacation is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the company of equine friends.
I can't remember my kindergarten teacher's name but I can vividly remember the summer vacation my family took when I was 5. We took a road trip to Mt. Snow Ski Resort in Vermont. My parents were looking for a long weekend of peace and quiet. As we drove up to our hotel, I immediately spotted a white pony roaming freely around the grounds. The bellman noticed my fascination and introduced me to "Snowshoes". It was Snowshoe's job to pull the children's sleds in winter but he was given the summers off for good behavior.
Many parents dream of taking their kids to Europe. Of course, when you’re talking about a family vacation, budget is always a top consideration and concern.
Parents googling this question are trying to plan and budget. You’re looking for a “ball park” to see if a trip to Europe is affordable for your family.
2018 promises to be another good year over for the travel industry but particularly exciting for the family travel market. Research done by the Family Travel Association have been predicting about an 8% growth in the $150 billion dollar family travel market. Affordability is always a key motivating factor when it comes to making family vacation decisions. With the passing of President Trumps "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act" that was signed into law on Dec. 22, average American families can expect significant tax refunds this spring. My travel agency has already started receiving calls from hard working parents looking to spend this new found money on a memorable travel experience with their family.
