3. Home Away From Home
Carefully consider your vacation accommodations based on location and family preferences. I’m a big fan of vacation rentals such as those found on Airbnb, particularly if we plan to visit attractions spread out over more space. Also, as someone with pretty strict dietary restrictions, I understand the benefits of staying somewhere with the convenience of a kitchen. Vacation rentals also provide travelers with more privacy (bye-bye kid jumping on the bed next door at the hotel!) and a more authentic cultural experience as you live more like a local. However, perhaps you might prefer the peace of mind that comes with having a hotel concierge at your disposal who can help you plan activities and manage your itinerary. Travel accommodations are your home away from home. Know your family’s preferences and book accordingly.
