In a recent survey from travel network Virtuoso, multi-generational family trips were found to be the number three most popular vacation experience being booked, coming in just behind adventure trips and beach resorts.
Maybe your family wants to put down their devices and make memories together. Or, maybe you’re spread out around the country (or world) and don’t get to come together often. Whatever the reason, and there are many, here are three examples of amazing multi-generational trips you and your family can take.
Irish Heritage Trip
Why not take the kids & grandkids on a private tour around Ireland, visiting amazing sites, a few distilleries, and towns where your ancestors lived? Imagine spending the night at Ashford Castle and watching the grandkids learn falconry, riding a Jaunting Car through Killarney National Park, and visit Cobh, where over 2.5 million departed from Ireland, looking for an opportunity overseas.
Walt Disney World
It’s not just a place for kids. Well, I mean, it is… But, it’s for the kid inside all of us! My parents love Disney, I love Disney, and have you ever met a kid who didn’t? Get a nice villa at my favorite resort, the Wilderness Lodge, and enjoy a week at the parks with the family. Meet characters, dine at amazing restaurants, and watch the fireworks. Good use of Fast Passes and Advanced Dining Reservations can help you avoid waits and make the most of your memories. Get the Photopass and you can leave your camera in the room; all your photos, from rides to character meet-and-greets, will be tied to your account and you can download and share them from your phone. They really do try to make it a magical experience for the whole family.
Cruises pack the best of everything into a single ship. The best food, relaxing spas, fun swimming pools, and exciting excursions. Hop on a Celebrity Cruise and let the little ones learn at the Explorer Academy while the grown-ups relax by the adult-only pool with tropical drinks in hand. Everyone can enjoy riding electric bikes around Cozumel the next day! It’s a great way to make sure everyone stays together but can satisfy their unique interests.
Round up that family and get out in the world. Explore together, eat together, learn together, make lasting memories together!
It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it.
