Family Adventures

A Time to Bond and Explore

A family vacation no longer means taking your kids to the beach for a week in the summer; parents, aunts, uncles, and everyone in between want in on the experience. 

This is not the only changing trend; vacation plans are shifting from quick escapes to highly-planned excursions.

And when planning an intricate trip with a wide range of ages involved, from children, baby boomers, and retiree's, planning is essential.

Why is Multigenerational Travel So Popular?

In between holidays, my family rarely got to spend quality time with each either because of extremely busy lifestyles.

Both my parents worked while my brother and I were preoccupied with highly-run social lives. Now baby boomers, the generation who grew up with the notion of a sit-down-family dinner and collaborative vacations, want to see their grandchildren grow. They are healthy and active retirees, so they are bringing back the family vacation.

Like many parents, mine cherished the bonds they built with their family, so being involved in my life and my children's was much more important than offering financial support or gifts. According to AARP, in 2016, 54% of members say they take a vacation to spend time with family and friends and 2/3 of them say that money had no impact on their vacation plans.

Time is much more precious than money, and like many baby boomers, they preferred trips over cash to celebrate milestone events.

Top locations that can adjust to any age:

Cruises

Ships cater to family vacations. As a parent, I could drop off my children at the supervised kid zone, show my grandparents to the on-ship casino, and station myself by the adult-only swimming pool.

Plus, they offer a range of food options and dining hours, so we could eat when and where we want.

IDEA 1

Exploring New Cultures

I like to take a step out of my comfort zone for a worth-while experience. And what better way to share something new with my family than discovering another region of the world. There are many popular destinations abroad that offer planned and all-inclusive packages that help schedule great experiences like an African safari, a Mexican resort stay, or a tour around Europe.

Amusement & National Parks

I have been on many Disney vacations with the whole family, and I can say nothing compared to watching my grandparents become kids again as they bond with their grandchildren. Disney offers many packages to suit large families, even a dining plan option and large cabin rentals. When my family felt adventuress, a vacation to one of the United States National Parks, like Yellow Stone National Park, Glacier National Park or the Grand Canyon, taught younger generations some outdoor skills.

"Finish Line BEST TRIP OF MY LIFE ! Let me just say that I tried local agents had no luck. Then did a google search for northeast Pa. for Travel Agents and about 50 people popped up. Tracy Schatz was the only one that had specializing in Bucket Lists. My son was running a marathon from Mt. Everest Base Camp in Nepal down to a village called Namche Bazaar in Nepal. I told her I want to be there when he crosses the finish line. I had no idea how to go about this trip , I have never been over seas before. Tracy took over and I thank God she did. She set the whole thing up for me from start to finish !!!!! When she tells you don't worry about anything she means it. I can't explain how smooth the trip went from the time I landed in Kathmandu in Nepal till the time I left. There was someone there to guide me through everything. My guide was great !!! She did a great job!!!"

- Glunz Family

"Responsive and Efficient!! AWESOME! Tracy immediately had a can-do attitude and started sending me information. I loved that we could text back and forth. She was an excellent communicator and I never wondered what was going on. She LISTENED to what I wanted and delivered!! Her advice for travel and tipping etc was indispensable. The resort she booked us at was amazing and we all had a phenomenal time!! Everything went exactly according to plan. I would use Tracy again in a heartbeat. Outstanding service!"

- Walker & Kelly

"Working with Tracy exceeded all of our expectations. She had answers to all of our questions, generated our trip options based upon the experience and atmosphere we wanted to have and was immediately responsive when any ripple in the plan occurred. Tracy is an exceptional agent and we will use her services again for trips in the future. When our flight was delayed, Tracy sent us turn by turn instructions for navigating through the airport to make our next flight in time. When my wife needed medical care, Tracy coordinated for nurses to meet us as we exited the shuttle from the airport to the resort. She went above and beyond in all regards."

- Tracey Fidler & Family

"Tracy has planned multiple trips for us (our family & friends) and we have never been disappointed. She really listens to what her clients are looking for and gives a variety of options. We have been to California (San Francisco & Napa), Niagara Falls – Canada, The Fingers Lakes in New York and Belize, all of which she has planned. While in Belize we had a family emergency and she came through immediately to help with the changing of our travel plans."
