How To Choose a Family Vacation Destination

Start your trip

Posted on 05/08/2019

It’s almost summer which is the perfect time to take the family and go somewhere new and exciting. Somewhere that you’ll remember forever and memories that last lifetimes. You've already been dreaming about doing something like this for a long time, haven’t you? The trouble is, you probably can’t make a choice as to where you should go.

There are a ton of options for you to choose from and even though, right at this moment, it may be impossible to see everything, you can pick one or a few and still get all of the fun you seek. To help, we've outlined some tips that will help guide you in choosing your next getaway:

1. Make A Bucket List

This is where it all starts. What have you always wanted to see and do? Make a list of all the places you love and have always wanted to visit… from the most desired to the least. Forget the experience of other people, just get your own list ready.

2. Make a Budget

Most people hate to admit it but live on a budget. However, there are great places to visit on almost every budget. Write down how much you can spend and then we can build you a fantastic trip around that.

3.Never Forget Weather & Heavy Tourism Season

Before choosing a destination, ask us what the weather and travel conditions during your dates are like. Trust us, weather and being stuck in traffic can make or break a trip. For example, you probably want to stay away from Disneyland around Spring Break (unless crowds are your thing and you know how to work the Fast Pass lines to your advantage). Another tip is to take a cruise to Alaska during July and August. May can still be a bit chilly and September can bring colder days as well. Don’t worry, as a full service travel agency in Denham Springs, Louisiana, we can help get you on the right Alaska cruise during the right time.

4. Check the Schedules

Did you know that cruise ships don’t even operate in the waters of Alaska from October-early May? Or that some international flights are grounded during certain months to popular tourist areas? Knowing these types of things will keep you from disappointment. Don’t worry, we’ll help you. And you’ll have enough time to either change your travel destination or traveling time of year.
