Back to School and Family Travel

Back to School and Family Travel

Does going back to school have you feeling the travel blues? Well no worries, because we’re talking back to school travel over in the Family Travel Talk Forum by Residence Inn.

If you are a family that loves to travel, you’ll definitely want to check out this fun and informative Family Travel Talk Forum that the Residence Inn has started on Facebook. They are featuring tips from 10 family travel expert bloggers from around the country every month, with topics such as traveling with different ages of kids, finding balance in travel, traveling with teens and more. This is a great forum to connect with other families who love to travel and share your experiences. Laura and I are so excited and honored to be a part of the 10 family travel experts sharing our experiences and tips with you as part of the forum.

Today I have shared a few of my tips on Back to School and Family Travel over in the Residence Inn Family Travel Talk Group on Facebook. I hope you’ll head on over there and join the conversation. Please leave a comment on my post in the forum and share your own tips!

  1. Most of our summer travel happens close to home so getting back into the swing of things when school starts is pretty easy!

    That said, I’d love to travel around the country more! There is so much to see and do.

  2. We love to travel especially since the kids are getting a little older.

  3. Traveling is in my blood, I’ve trekked close to home and all the way to Asia. Back to school time actually begins our travel season, since we homeschool we tend to travel in the off season for better rates and lower crowds!

  4. I loved your post today and you had some great ideas about easing back into Fall. So looking forward to all the information the forum will offer!

  5. Thanks for the heads-up, I joined!

  6. Honestly, I’ve never been much on traveling (I think I take this from my Mom, or because of her). :) However, I do hope that one day my hubby and I can do some traveling.

  7. I just joined the facebook group! It is hard to to back to school travel for us because we cannot take the days of during the school year, just the summer.

  8. I just requested to join the group! Can’t wait to check out more.

  9. We went on our first family vacation back in August and now I’m itching to travel more!

  10. Michelle F. says:

    great! I will be looking into the forum.

  11. Thanks! We love to take the kids and see different sites.

  12. We will be traveling overseas in December. I’m nervous on how my kids will be! I’ll check out the FB group! Thank you!

  13. Great tips on the Facebook Forum. We try to get the routine going a week or two before the end of summer, too.

    I like that Residence Inn is doing this. We are big fans of Residence Inn – having the kitchenette and living room area in the room really does make it much easier to travel with kids.

  14. We will be traveling as a family again in a few months, and although I’m looking forward to having a lot of fun, I know the trek itself will be hectic.

  15. Is the conversation happening now?

  16. I love Residence Inn. We stayed at the one in Tallahassee this summer – twice! We love all of the “room” that we have in our room.

  17. We have pretty much been home bodies so far, so I tips from me.

  18. I LOVE to travel!! Never stayed at the Residence Inn. I will have to try them!

  19. Since we moved to Florida we have actually traveled more than ever. We love to travel.

  20. I love to travel but with two surley teenagers it makes it difficult to have fun. Any ideas on how to keep them from killing each other and driving us crazy?
