After over 20+ trips to Walt Disney World, one of my favorite memories is of my dad holding my son on his lap during a parade. The look of pure joy and excitement on both of their faces was something I will never forget, and from that day forward we tried to take as many trips as we could with family of all generations.
Multigenerational travel is an increasingly popular way for extended family members to vacation together. Now more than ever, young adult parents are not only spending more time traveling with their children, they are bringing their parents along as well. Here are a few reasons why I love traveling with my kids and their grandparents.
Spending Quality Time Together
Life is very hectic with busy schedules, school functions, work and so much more. It’s often difficult to spend quality time with your extended family. Traveling allows you to slow down, spend time together away from daily responsibilities and enjoy new experiences as a family.
Making Lifetime Memories
Spending the day at Walt Disney World, wandering through ancient cities in Rome or cruising through Bermuda gives you and your family many opportunities to explore and create shared memories.
Your family will remember these vacations forever and will look back on these memories fondly.
Bonding with Family
Spending time with Grandma and Grandpa while traveling allows you and your kids to gain a whole new perspective. Not only will they see things differently, they are, most of the time, just as fun and silly as the kids. Nurturing these bonds with extended family while experiencing a destination and its local culture makes for a great time for everyone.
Traveling with different generations can have its own unique challenges, but it is something worth doing at least once. Orchestrating a trip for multiple ages and different interests requires a lot of research and planning. Enchanted Adventures is here to help.
