Most of the articles you find online about vacationing with family deal with taking infants, toddlers, preteens, and teens on the trip. Few deal with older parents who want to spend a vacation with their adult children, and those who are looking for tips and advice in this matter sometimes don’t know where to turn. Keep reading, and this article should help to shed some light on how you can plan a getaway with your grown kids and have the time or your life.

Get the Timing Right

First, when you are traveling with your adult kids, you have to realize that it’s not as simple as waiting until summer vacation to hit the road, unless they happen to be teachers. You have to talk with them about the best time that they, and you, can take off from work and spend a week or so together. Once you know the best time of year to go, you can begin planning in earnest.


What happens when you worry that you have too much work to take time away for a proper vacation? If you are like most people, you push away the idea of a vacation and put your nose back to the grindstone. However, this is not healthy. You do need to take some time to relax and unwind. You need to have the occasional vacation. However, it is entirely understandable that it’s not always possible to take care of all of the work before you head out the door and throw on your swimsuit.

Instead of choosing one over the other, some professionals are finding ways to add some work time to their vacation. It’s important that you make sure you balance it the right way though. It should tip the scales toward more fun time and less work time as much as possible.


When many people think about going on vacation, they worry about just how much they will spend when they reach their destination. One of the biggest problems comes from the cost of going out to eat all the time. Of course, when you are staying in a small hotel room, you really do not have much choice but to eat out. However, you can do some things to cut down on the cost of eating out. Namely, you can stop eating out so much. Here are some ways to do that.

Where You Stay

First, consider where you will be staying. If you are staying in a typical hotel room, you will be lucky if you have a microwave in the room with you. Most will only have a coffee machine. This means you will not be making many of your own meals. However, if you choose to stay at a timeshare property, whether you own or rent, you will generally have a full kitchen. This can open up an entire world of possibilities for you when it comes to what you eat each day.

Whether you were to buy into the timeshare property, or even find one available for rent, you can be sure to have a great time. Let’s look at some of the features of the property.

What Makes Park Soleil Great?

If you aren’t a gambling man or woman, chances are that you never even considered heading to Las Vegas, the infamous Sin City, for a vacation. While gambling was certainly a huge part of the city, and it still is, gambling is no longer the thing that defines Vegas. It is a great place to vacation for many people, including families with kids. Let’s look at just a few of the non-gambling activities you can enjoy when you are in Vegas. Best of all, these are things you can do without spending too much money!

People Watch on the Strip

Once you do a bit of people watching along the Strip, you will most assuredly agree that it’s a fabulously strange and frenetic place. You can even find some great restaurants along the Strip to help you with your people watching.


California is a remarkable state with plenty to offer vacationers up and down the coast. In Southern California, many different attractions help to make it an ideal vacation spot and staying somewhere that’s right along the coast is one of the top ways to see and experience the area. One of the best in the region is Marriott’s Newport Coast Villas, a timeshare property that has plenty to offer. It is only a few steps to the beach and has gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean. The villas are gorgeous and have plenty of amenities

What Makes the Timeshare a Good Idea?

The villas at the property are ideal for vacationing families. They are nice and large with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The villas are large enough to sleep six comfortably. The separate living area also features a sleeper sofa. The villas have a separate dining area, as well as a full kitchen. The kitchen makes it easy to prepare meals and to save a bit on dining out. They even have a washer and dryer in the villa so you can clean your clothes. It really does have everything you need to make it a home away from home.


We’re not quite into Thanksgiving and winter is still a little ways off (in most places anyways), but that doesn’t mean your mind isn’t wandering to next summer and your vacation. This time of year, with all of the stress that the holidays can bring, is actually a perfect time to start thinking about your vacation. In fact, even though it’s still a long ways off, starting to plan next summer’s family getaway could be a good idea for a couple of reasons. First, it will keep your mind off the holiday stress and second, it will ensure you are prepared for the summer vacation! Here are some tips to remember when planning.

Know Your Budget

Before you choose a place to go, you need to know your budget, and you should think conservatively here. Just because you feel that you might have some extra money for the vacation in a few months, don’t plan around having that money. Anything could happen between now and then, so keep the plan to the type of vacation that you could afford right now. Pick a budget that makes you comfortable, and then start to set aside a bit of money for the vacation whenever you have the chance. This can be hard during the holiday season, but it should be easier after the New Year.


For those who love to travel, looking into a timeshare could be a good option. Timeshares allow people to buy into a very nice vacation property without needing to spend as much money as they would if they had to buy their own full vacation home. After making the purchase of the property with a full payment, you will then only have to pay the annual maintenance fees. With a timeshare, you are generally going to get about a week per year of vacation time, although it’s possible that some of the resorts offer longer vacation times.

Why is a Timeshare a Good Option?

You already know that you are going to be able to save money since you will not have to buy an entire home. However, timeshares have quite a few other benefits as well. First, the maintenance fee that you pay each year is going to help to ensure that everything is always running properly at your property. You do not have to worry about doing any of the maintenance on your own, which is nice. Next, you never have to worry about whether the hotels and resorts in your vacation spot are all booked up. You will always be able to know you have a place to stay, and that makes planning your vacation less of a headache.
