There truly can be vacations that work best for the enjoyment of both the kids and the seniors.

15 Places Every Kid Should See

I’ve always felt that every high school student in the country should visit Washington, DC before graduation.  I stumbled on this site that lists 15 places every kid should see and I agree with them all. How about you?  Beyond fun and sometimes relaxation, senior vacations with grandkids can also provide opportunities to explore, learn, and grow together.


Best Family Friendly Vacations

I’ll wow you with this last one that TripAdvisor suggests for Best Family Friendly Vacations anywhere. I note that they placed Orlando #1 and for good reason. New York City was second and for good reason again.  That’s another place that I feel that youngsters need to visit prior to turning 21.  It’s an awesome city, but then again, so is Paris, and Rome and London…

I was glad that they ranked Paris in there as #3.  My travel hero Rick Steves said recently in an interview when he was asked the best place in the world he had ever been…it was Paris. Enjoy your planning with your grandkids, seniors and have a super vacation together.  jeb
