Family Vacations

Some of the best family memories come from family vacations, when everyone put aside the routine tasks and “got away from it all.” And although some of us will feel nostalgic when we recall all-night packing sessions and mad scrambles to get a hotel room when the destination town was booked solid for a motorcycle rally, the stress caused by these incidents at the time may well make us think that some planning ahead would have been a better idea.

Before You Go

From a scheduling standpoint, the most important thing to do when you're planning a family vacation is to make sure that everyone's calendar is clear so that everyone can go on the vacation. You'll want to plan far enough in advance that everyone actually has a block of open days on the planner, but you don't want to plan so far in advance that lots of unforeseen conflicts are likely to arise. If a few adjustments and compromises need to be made to individuals' schedules, the sooner you can make them, the better. After you've settled on the dates, you should immediately block them off on your family's planner so no one will make the mistake of scheduling something else for the same time.
