From the Travel Office: Planning a Family Vacation


Now is an ideal time of year to arrange a family trip. A shared vacation makes a wonderful holiday gift, and we would be delighted to help assemble an attractive package to put under the tree. This season might also be one of the few occasions when all family members are gathered in the same place, making it the perfect moment to start planning for 2015.

Dreaming up a vacation together can be a wonderful bonding experience. And traveling as a family never fails to create memories everyone will long cherish, whether you book a barge charter in France, an eco-adventure in Costa Rica, a beach vacation in the Caribbean or a safari in the Okavango. Many of the most desirable accommodations — especially interconnecting rooms — fill up quickly for peak periods, so it is best to plan early to avoid disappointment.
