Mutigenerational Travel Can be Fun!

More and more people are Traveling with grandparents can make for a wonderfully memorable family vacation. I’ve listed out my favorite points below:

-Have a loose itinerary. Have a few scheduled activities or meals, and leave room for people to go off on their own. Let everyone have a say. A pushy cruise-director is an invitation for rebellion.

-Keep the pace comfortable for all. Know in advance if you’re having a mellow, relaxing beach trip, or an on-the-go trip to the theme park, to an educational historic adventure. Make sure it’s the right fit for everyone going.

-Rent a house. A house or villa will allow common areas for impromptu gathering, and private spaces for down time. If you can’t, a multi-room hotel like at a Residence Inn by Marriott or similar. At the very least, get rooms near each other

-Know the limitations. If someone has a physical challenge, or if there are small kids, staying on-site or going on a cruise might be best to limit how much walking and driving to and from the attractions. It also allows those who need it to take a break to get it quickly.
