Holidays provide an opportunity to get away from the stress of modern life and busy schedules. The pandemic prevented many people from spending enough time with their families, particularly grandparents and their grandchildren, hence there has been a noticeable rise in multigenerational family vacations.
Traveling with three or more generations is generally considered multigenerational travel. Apart from life’s everyday distractions and long working hours, families can spend uninterrupted time together. Even the simplest experiences, such as a meal, can become cherished memories. The benefits of this scale of family travel stretch through every generation, especially for kids since travelling can benefit their education and social skills as they receive hands-on learning of cultures through trying new cuisines and perhaps picking up some of the languages.
How to Plan a Multigenerational Family Trip
As with all trips, proper planning is essential to ensure the trip goes smoothly and is enjoyable for everyone.
