Are you planning a multigenerational vacation for your family? If so – congrats! You're about to create memories that will last a lifetime. Planning a multigenerational travel trip can be sort of tricky. It's hard to please everyone. With so many generations involved in the planning and execution, it's inevitable that different ideas will surface. This can cause some tension and stress at times, but it doesn't have to be this way. By cultivating a positive attitude and following these 5 tips, undertaking multigenerational travel plans for your family vacation can be an enjoyable experience for everyone.

Here are 5 family vacation tips to plan a seamless vacation for family members of all ages.


Personal space for everyone

It goes without saying that when thinking of family vacation ideas with grandparents, logistics are essential. Choose a hotel or resort with suites or rooms that allow everyone to have their own space. This will help keep everyone's needs met and happy, whether they're teenagers or seniors. Many family vacation destinations do offer connecting rooms or suites, so that everyone can have their own space while also being connected to the rest of the family.


Entertainment for all family members

When you brainstorm for big family vacation ideas, make sure the property you have in mind has daily activities for kids and adults, as well as fun options that appeal to all ages. It's important to keep everyone entertained! It is important to look up what activities are offered at family vacation destinations to ensure that there are enough things to keep everyone occupied and happy during the vacation.


Amenities and discounts for seniors

Don't forget about the grandparents! When you are thinking about family vacation ideas with grandparents, look into senior discounts, easy-to-access activities and other amenities tailored to older travellers. They've worked hard their whole lives—now they deserve to have some fun without straining themselves!


Space for hanging out together

Pick a location where you can all get outdoors together – maybe near a waterpark, seaside, a nature trail, or simply a BBQ outdoors – to spend some time in nature as a family. Getting outside is good for everyone!


Pack light for your trip

One important family vacation tip is to pack light, but pack right! If you're travelling in a large group, make sure your luggage isn't too heavy so that grandma doesn't have to lug it around everywhere she goes!

The most important thing to remember with this is that communication is key. Make sure that everyone knows what you're trying to accomplish, because family vacations are rarely "simple”, and a bit of preparation can go a long way towards making sure everyone's needs (and wants) get met. Also, remember that now more than ever seniors are adventurous and willing to travel if you get them involved and make it fun for them. Be prepared, don't be afraid to try new things, and enjoy reconnecting with the people you care about. And whatever you do, don't forget the camera!
