Five Tips for Planning a Group Beach Vacation
You've just left an exhilarating dinner party and all of these friends decided it's time to take a vacation together. All of them. Or your family of grandparents, siblings, nieces and nephews all want to take a group trip. Or maybe your daughter's volleyball team wants to turn a tournament into a team vacation.
With the proper planning, all of these situations can be fun and memorable. To help you plan a successful trip, we've listed our top five tips for planning a group vacation in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
1. Determine the budget. The “B” word is no fun, but it needs to be the first stop on your itinerary. With a wide range of people coming along, it’s possible not everyone has the same budget. Discuss budget constraints and expectations up front and plan accordingly.
2. Don’t force everyone into one itinerary. While you’ll likely plan a few group activities, don’t expect everyone to do every single activity together. Twenty-four/seven togetherness can quickly turn the tides on a great vacation. Discuss ideas and pricing for group activities and meals at Gulf Shores and Orange Beach restaurants prior to making reservations.
