Did you make a plan with your family?
This is likely one of the most crucial steps in planning the perfect family getaway. Let everyone be involved with planning. Determine how much “planned” activity is desired and how much “free” time is wanted. Balance is a key ingredient in enjoyable travels.

Keep in mind that babies and toddlers need naps and snacks more often that older kids and teenagers, so plan with that in mind. With teenagers, a written survey is a quick and easy way to get them thinking about what they want to do, how much pool time they’d like and how adventurous they want to be. Try it!
