Great Family Vacation Ideas for Romantic Getaways!

   Looking for a family vacation ideas? For A week or Two, No Alarm Clock or Phone! Get rid of the everyday time stealers and responsibilities. Stay up late, sleep in the next morning. Then, enjoy a nice, leisurely breakfast or brunch, either at home (in bed maybe?) or out at a restaurant...    

    For people who love to travel a lot, going to places that they have not been before will seem like a dream come true for most of them. This is because they get to places where everything will look new, the adventures are definitely fresh and the surrounding all too vague and strange that makes the travel more exciting.
   However, not all places are created equal. This goes to show that not all rules and regulations are applicable to every place or location. That is why it is extremely important to know some information about the place itself and identify the governing laws...

   What is the best way to travel with your kids to exotic or unusual destinations without dealing with multiple plane rides and dragging luggage day after day? Go on a cruise! Kids can definitely cruise, especially these days. Kids are big business and cruise lines, more and more, are catering to the younger crowd. The cruise industry is growing faster than ever, and with this huge expansion comes more opportunities to save money on special cruise deals. With more vacationers taking to the seas cruise lines are growing larger and can afford to offer special discounts to customers to get more people hooked on this luxury style of vacationing. Those looking for a cruise vacation can make a few smart decisions and save themselves a lot of cash without much sacrifice.
  When traveling with the family, you are always conscious of your budget. One reason cruises are becoming more popular is because of the cost. For one price, you get food, transportation, accommodations, great entertainment, many ship activities and special programs just for kids. Also, there are often cruising specials where kids can cruise for free.
   When someone thinks about cruises, they often think about the balmy beaches of the Caribbean or Hawaii.  Traveling by cruise ship is more popular than ever before, thanks to its affordability, you can not only go to those sunny tropical destinations like Bermuda, Mexico and Hawaii but also to more unusual ports like Hong Kong, Alaska, Norway and the Amazon River.
  Color-drenched sunsets... Magical moonlit walks along the ship’s decks.... Gazing out into the ocean and whispering words of love to your new spouse... Nothing is more romantic than a cruise. Honeymooners can have their choice of destinations and decide if they want to participate in all of the ship’s activities or just join in a few and spend the rest of time in bed!  The great thing about taking a cruise for the honeymoon is the all-inclusiveness of the ship. Entertainment, food, lodging, activities … all are part of the cruise price, something that a couple would not find at any land-locked resort.

   Ever since I can remember, my love affair with dolphins has always been a restless force inside of me. As a child I was besotted with the intelligence and charm of “Flipper” in the TV series of the same name. And so, many years later, as an adult, having the opportunity to interact with these creatures one on one was indeed a dream come true.  One of the very best of these facilities is Discovery Cove, Florida. Discovery Cove is a sister park to Sea World, and they are in fact located just across the road from one another. However, Discovery Cove is an theme park like no other. You can swim with sting rays and other tropical fish, glide safely alongside real sharks, feed the exotic birds housed in a stunning free flight aviary, or simply relax and enjoy the Florida sunshine on pristine sandy beaches....

   London is a town filled with museums of all sorts: large and small, gaudy and elegant, historical and just fun. Of them all, though, the British Museum, located in the Bloomsbury district of the borough of Camden, will always stand out as the grand old mistress. Her exhibits outshine all the rest. The British Museum celebrated its 250th birthday in 2003.  If you visit the British Museum while in London, arrive early; it’s as large as many malls.

Whether you visit Dublin for business or pleasure make some time to explore this wonderful city. It is both modern and energetic with its old traditions are all around.

   Cancun...It is, indeed, a great and enjoyable country to visit. Yet, visiting Cancun can do more harm than good if things are not done properly or when people bring with them unnecessary things. Cancun has always been a popular spring break travel destination.
   For people who are first timers in Cancun, it is best that they do their homework first. That is, research more about the country, its government, some special laws that needs to be kept in mind while there, or the kind of people present so as to have an idea about how to deal with them good-naturedly...

Looking for a family vacation ideas?

1. Find out what your family is looking for in a vacation. Does everybody want to relax on a beach, hike a mountain, visit a national park, play at a waterpark, go shopping or visit museums and cultural sites.  How you like to spend your time: Take a little time to think about what you like doing before planning your trip. Do you prefer the water, or the mountains? Lying on the beach, or rock-climbing? Adrenaline rushes or visiting an art museum?

2. Establish how far you want to travel and the means of transportation. Will you be traveling by plane, car, train or by boat?

3. Narrow down your choices to a couple of vacation destination that can satisfy most of your vacation needs.

4. Find out about hotels and resort choices in the area. Make sure that they offer the particular facilities that your family is looking for, such as a swimming pool, kid's programs or a spa. This is also a good time to find out about the hotel's reservation and cancellation policy.

5. Plan your vacation budget , adding up transportation, accommodation, dining and entertainment expenses. Decide how much you've got to spend, and don't forget to include extras like tourist attractions, getting around, souvenirs and meals (which are typically more expensive in Europe than in the states -- dinner can cost upwards of 50 Euros per person, especially in metropolitan cities). If your budget is smaller, consider visiting Eastern Europe, looking for packaged tours, or, if you're flexible, book a "last-minute" trip, which can often save you 30% or more. Check out the current exchange rate between your currency and that of the country you'll be visiting, to have a better idea of what your vacation is going to actually cost you. Whenever possible, travel during an off-peak season to save even more.
   Use the resources that are available to make your trip special and save money:
Today's travelers have numerous options when planning their vacation. You can use the Internet to find out more about the cities or countries you want to visit, check out prices, even book your flight or hotel room. If you're visiting a place for the first time, check with a travel agent, talk to someone who's "been there, done that" on an Internet Forum, or contact local chambers or commerce or travel councils to get more information about where to go, what to see and what to do.

6. Make all the necessary reservations, such as hotel rooms, airline and car rental reservations.

7. Remember to book golf tee times, spa treatments, activities and special tours. Call your resort to confirm dining reservations.

8. It may be a good idea to purchase travel insurance in case you need to cancel your trip, especially when travelling with young children.

9. Make a shopping list of all the items that you have to purchase before you go. Making that perfect last-minute swimsuit purchase can be a nerve-racking experience. When planning your trip, look at your wardrobe and pack as lightly as you can. Take only what you'll really need, and remember that if you forget or end up needing something, chances are you can get it once you reach your destination. Print out your travel packing list.

10. Finally, one of the most important things to remember when planning your family vacation is that vacations are supposed to be fun. Focus on spending time with your family and not on overplanning the daily activities. Have fun! Get organized, make your plans and expect the best. That way, once you're on your way, you'll be able to relax and enjoy yourself. But remember, there are very few "perfect" vacations, so if something does go wrong, try to relax and "go with the flow" as much as possible.
   Experienced travelers say that sometimes their best vacations have been the ones where the unexpected happened.
