Multigenerational Vacations is the Latest Travel Trend

Here’s an interesting trend… Four-in-10 Baby Boomers are now grandparents and spending time with grandkids is a top priority for many (source). In fact, multigenerational vacations – defined as a trip including three or more generations – is one of the biggest trends in the travel industry.

I’ve experienced it myself. My parents are very involved and love spending time with all of their grand kids. They want to be there for their milestones, birthdays, and even fun travels.

Each year, my family has made it a tradition to travel to Orlando with my parents. I’m fortunate that my mom is still young and well and can tolerate a long day at Universal Studios or Disney. We’ve been to both sides of Universal Studios, as well as Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Our trips were enriched with three generations of family experiencing a fun vacation together. We all went on rides together, laughed together, and got exhausted together.

My kids truly appreciate being able to capture these memories from this annual tradition. And, we know we’ll have the photos and memories to cherish for years to come.

There are many family-style vacations where the multi-generational group can travel to. One very accommodating multigenerational vacation destination is Kalahari.

Kalahari Resorts has locations in Sandusky, Ohio, Wisconsin Dells and one coming soon to Pocono Mountains, Penn. They offer something for everyone – America’s largest indoor waterparks, seasonal outdoor waterparks, Spa Kalahari, award-winning indoor attractions, convention center and on-site dining, just to name a few.
