Why Family Trips are Essential


A recent study on family tourism planning polling 2,000 U.S. parents of school-aged children ranging from ages 4 to 18, found that the majority of parents believe travel is a vital part of their family dynamics.

Whether dreaming of making memories at a family resort, flying across the world, or enjoying a luxury cruise, the research unearthed the biggest efforts parents make in trying to take their kids a dream trip.

The top reasons parents give for wanting their children to travel include: experiencing a new area or culture (74%), strengthening family relationships (73%) and giving children both the opportunity to have fun and to learn new things (67%).

For their dream vacation, parents would like to be near beaches (72%), restaurants (69%) and amusement parks (59%).

Parents reported that the most important aspects of a family vacation are the location (79%), the budget (71%) and the dates of travel (47%).
