    How to Pick the Best Vacation Spot for Your Family

    FacebookTwitterPinterest

    The following is a post from Leona Jones. Consideration was received for the editing and publishing of this post.

    With summer not too far away, parents and kids might already be eyeing a vacation destination. Are family discussions not getting you anywhere? Can’t agree on a destination that is a good fit for everyone? Want to learn how to decrease tensions and make the prospect of vacation fun once again? Here is how to pick the best vacation spot for your family that will have everyone pleased and looking forward to a good time.

    A little something for everyone

    It might seem like everyone has opposing desires when it comes to what they picture as their ideal vacation. So while there will need to be some compromise, what you might be missing is clarifying expectations. Have everyone list the one activity that is at the top of their list. And as a family, brainstorm ways that everyone can come away with having done their top-priority activity. Start off with just one activity, and if you figure out a way to incorporate more, then great! Some vacation spots have a huge range of activities available in one area, as shown on this website for the Orlando area. So it is entirely possible to get everyone’s top-list priority crossed off all in one spot.

    Enjoy the research phase

    Anticipating your vacation, doing research for it, and talking about it with your family all add up to part of the fun of travel. You can get more out of your vacation by enjoying the research phase with your kids and spouse. Research restaurants, sightseeing spots, and shops – together.

    It’s the journey, not just the destination

    Family road trip? Flight? Amtrak? How you get to your destination can be part of the fun, too. Getting quality time with the kids may be something on your to-do list and what you, as a parent, are hoping for in your vacation. If experience tells you that driving will be stressful for the whole family, then you may want to fly instead of drive. Consider if you will be in walking distance to local attractions. Or whether you will need to rent a car at your destination to get to all the attractions you want to see. In the end, it might be simplest to take your own car. Weigh the pros and cons.

    Food considerations

    Are you all foodies? A big part of choosing a vacation locale is considering the restaurants and local food at your destination. Activities might be high on your list, but what you eat can make or break a vacation. As a family, are there certain dishes you all love? Have a couple restaurants picked out for each area that everyone agrees on. If you have multiple picky eaters, or a medical diet restriction, do your research now to find options that will suit everyone. Don’t wait until the last minute when you’re trying to order to sort this stuff out.

    Budgeting concerns

    Do you have a budget for your vacation? If not, you should. And not just because it will keep you from overspending on things you’d never buy at home. Budgeting for a trip is a great way to help you think, plan, and anticipate your upcoming vacation. If done right, it can increase your enjoyment of the trip. Calculate how much your budget will allow you to spend on hotel rooms and meals for each day. And then make sure your hotel and restaurant choices are in line with your budget. Figuring these things out beforehand will prevent unexpected costs from biting you in the rear.

    Try to avoid maxing out your budget on things like hotel rooms. That might cause you to be short on cash for extras, which will inevitably come up. Having a daily cash allowance per person in your family is another good way to keep everyone from over spending and keeping things fair all around.
