How to have romance on family trips

It may seem unusual to be thinking about romance in the context of family travel. Travel with kids often feels like the least romantic travel of all, a tectonic break from the carefree, sexy jaunts you enjoyed with your partner not so long ago. And while it’s true that lugging strollers, ordering chicken fingers, and cleaning up kid messes are about as seductive as a fanny pack, keeping a little spice in the relationship — even on your family trip — is not just important. It’s actually doable...

Tips for a ski trip with little kids

Going on a family ski vacation sounds like a lovely enough idea: being in the mountains, spending time away together, hanging out by the crackling fire at night. Yet the main point of a ski vacation is to ski, or snowboard, and that’s where things get complicated. Not everyone in your family may ski at the same level, and some of you may not ski at all. Suddenly your family vacation can seem like a logistical nightmare, trying to make sure everyone is having fun. Before you book that ski trip...

Vacations are good for kids study

Springing for a family vacation might not sound like the cheapest Christmas gift, but research shows that it could actually be what’s best for your kids. Professor Jaak Panksepp, a neuroscientist at Washington State University, discovered that family holidays can enhance brain development in children. Playing and exploring, two activities that are not part of the daily routine of school and work, lead to brain growth that is linked to “cognitive functioning, social intelligence and well-foc...

Destressing Holiday Travel

“Over the meadow and through the woods. To Grandmother’s house we go…” It’s a wonderful, nostalgic song about traveling by sleigh to the grandparents’ house for the holidays. But make no mistake: The song and reality seldom matched. That sleigh ride in midwinter snow was cold! Bitterly cold. The horse could flounder in the drifts. The sleigh could get stuck or slip off the trail. Meanwhile the kids in the back were saying, “Are we there yet?”  Travel these days should be easier, but it’s of...

A Family’s Free Stopover In Iceland

As a travel editor for KidTripster , an online resource that provides information and inspiration to traveling families, I’m constantly searching for ways to get more from the typical family vacation. When I recently got two European vacations for the price of one, I had to tell my girlfriends, my neighbors, and anyone else who’d listen. My 19-year-old son and I had recently achieved our bucket list goal of visiting all seven continents with a memorable cruise to Antarctica. My husband passe...

6 Summer Activities The Whole Family Will Enjoy

Summer is my favorite time of the year, especially since I live in New England. We don’t have that nice 3 months of each season like some places do. It’s like 2 months of spring, 2 months of summer, 2 months of fall and 6 months of winter. Or at least that’s what it feels like sometimes! I LIVE for summer days and warm weather. From juicy seasonal fruits like watermelon and strawberries to driving east until I hit the ocean, there is something special about summer. Of course with the...

How to book a family farm stay

Experiencing the great outdoors and spending time on a real-life working farm is a great way to switch off from the modern world. Not only will you slow down, but you’ll also be amazed at how much you learn. And nothing bonds a family more than enjoying the eggs that you’ve just collected from the chickens for breakfast or milking a cow together. While staying at a five-star resort with all mod cons can be fun, farm stays let you connect with nature and with each other. You’ll always remember...

How to road trip with your family

Summer is here and you’re thinking of setting out on a family road trip. Maybe you’ve edited your own memories to recall only the fun games of “I Spy,” the bags of cherries your parents bought at the roadside farm stand, and the eventual arrival at the beach, the mountains, or other equally awesome location. You may have filtered out the time your sibling got carsick, you parent drove the wrong way for 30 miles, or, when you finally stopped for lunch at 4:00 p.m., the food sucked. Car trips c...

7 epic family vacations

There’s a great big world out there waiting to be discovered — one chock full of fun, surprising, and mind-expanding experiences. So why would you visit a fake castle when you can see a real one? Are sweaty actors in Mickey costumes really more exciting than black bears in the wild? Can dry ice on a Disney stage compete with dozens of geysers spewing steam fifty feet into the air? Add to that the expense of a Disney visit, including airfare, hotels, entrance and parking fees, and costly food, c...

Why You Need To Take Family Vacations (Even Quick Ones!)

Family vacations are a must, a definite, a necessity. Why? It’s simple… you’re together. This past weekend I was keynoting in Hershey, PA at the Boost Your Influence Summit. As soon as I was asked to speak, I told my husband that I wanted everyone to tag along with me to! As much as my kids hate road trips, I LOVE them. I LOVE looking into the backseat and seeing 5 little heads. There’s something comforting in that for me. I just love seeing their faces… even though they’re tuned into their devi...
