Not enough time is a common complaint travelers have today. Time is a commodity which is hard to come by especially for families. From our busy schedules at work to school and after school activities not to mention an attempt at having some semblance of a social life as a parent, there are rarely enough hours in the day to relax for a minute, let alone a vacation. Keeping this in mind, it is important to maximize the time you do get for you and your family to vacation. Make the most of your experiences with a little preparation and do what you can to enjoy some much needed quality time with your family.

Take advantage of technology to save you time and reduce stress – From gps to video games, technology though it can be a curse at times, is also a blessing when it comes to traveling. From helping reduce stress as you navigate your way through Indianapolis during rush hour to keeping the kids quiet for a while you make reservations or plans for the next state, there is certainly a place for technology when it comes to making time for your family, maximizing the experience and reducing stress.
Plan activities for everyone and let your kids feel like part of the vacation – Make them feel important and take ownership for part of the vacation by asking for their input when they are a bit older. We may not remember how much we hated being treated like children as we got a little older, while it may be too early for a cup of hot coffee, its never to early to ask their opinion about what they want to see along the way.
Choose accommodations and destinations which accommodate children – From hotels to destinations, if the opportunities are limited for part of the family, no part of the family will be having a good time, rest assured. While it is good to make time for each other, it is also good to have a break. Choosing destinations which cater to families is a great way to keep everyone happy by offering some time apart and still enjoying time together.
Relax and go with the flow – Our children are a gift, relax and enjoy your time together, it won’t be long till they are grown and gone.
