Here comes spring, and then summer, and with it, for many families, the challenge of coordinating vacation plans and travel schedules to accommodate different generations.
A few months back, I reviewed Planes, Canes and Automobiles: Connecting with your aging parents through travel by New York-based writer Valerie Grubb. It’s great guide for planning a trip with someone you love, whether it’s a one-day road trip or a months-long tour of South America.
Then, this weekend, I came across this New York Times story: “3 -Generation Family Trips Gain New Appeal but Can Bare Old Tensions,” which offers more strategies for getting the most out of a multigenerational vacation.
As you plan your summer vacation, take a little extra time to check out these useful ideas.
