Playlist - Family Travel

If the journey is part of the destination, then family travel is the best kind of travel. Traveling with the family has its share of challenges (especially packing – why the hell do we have so much stuff!) but it is not without its rewards. I especially love watching the expression on my children’s faces when they experience something new. It’s the best part of family travel.

When it comes to family vacation ideas we typically have one (sometimes two) BIG vacations and try to plan as many mini-trips as we can fit in. We’ve found that three to five-hour road trips are the most my family can travel so many of the family travel posts are around the Chicagoland area. After five hours, everyone seems to get a little crabby. :)
