Family travels can be tricky. There are a lot of factors to consider. Price, proximity, logistics, and more all play a factor in making a vacation decision. You even have to consider your children’s ages and interests as well. What your children loved as toddlers won’t necessarily appeal to them as tweens and teens.
Wherever you decide, always keep in mind that you should aim to visit during the off-season to save money and try to plan at least a few months ahead. This is especially important for booking flights and hotels.
