Fall is around the corner and so are the winter holidays! Thanksgiving and Christmas may seem far off, but it will be here before you know it!
Have you ever considered taking it on the road around the holidays? Now is the time to finalize your plans.
Here are four great reasons why a holiday AWAY makes perfect sense:
Use Fewer Vacation Days
Extending a holiday that most people already have off minimizes the amount of time needed off from work. More bang for your buck! Save those vacation days for later!
Step Away from The Holiday Stress
Holidays can be a source of major stress as families juggle preparations, strong family personalities, coordinate meals, shop for gifts and more. A getaway helps put a “pause” on all the planning. Sure, there’s preparation involved, but when the major decision of the day is deciding between the beach or the pool, it doesn’t seem too terribly taxing. Plus...I’m here to help with the planning and preparation...you just pack and go! Instead of dreading the holidays, get excited about it!
Collect New Family Memories, Not Things Agree to limit the gifts in lieu of an extraordinary family vacation full of fun activities. Take advantage of being in a different environment by soaking up some new knowledge or acquiring a skill. Learn how to surf. Learn some foreign phrases. Explore a local museum. Wake up early to watch the sunrise over the horizon. Visit a volcano. Explore the local music scene. Try new foods. Visiting a new destination can awaken the possibilities and a sense of adventure in the whole family. Sharing a unique, common experience is one of the greatest gifts that you all will all cherish forever!
Leave the Housework At Home For the big holiday dinners, many hotels and resorts also craft special menus for the day to celebrate the occasion. Whether it’s a traditional turkey dinner, or infused with local flavors, it’s sure to be deliciously fuss-free and dish free.
