Family Travel

bored kids

School is coming to an end my friends, and the summer sun is upon us at last. Summer is the opportune time of year for families to come together and spend genuine quality time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life demands. The kids are well rested and eager for adventure, and the parents, thrilled to take a much needed getaway from their usual routines.

kids in the car

I have found that the classic family road trip never loses its appeal. Packing the kiddies up in the car and hitting the open road to your desired travel destination is not only an economic alternative, but also a fun filled adventure. This family vacation would not be complete without a family friendly B&B in which to relax and enjoy the sights of your sojourn, as well as create some unforgettable family memories that will last a lifetime.

on the steps

There are many positive perks of staying at a family friendly inn. Personal attentive service, exciting kidís activities, delicious home cooked meals and valuable time spent chatting and reminiscing in one anotherís presence are only a few. Family friendly B&Bs will become the ďhome away from homeĒ that you and your kids will love. Allow your gracious innkeepers to take care of all the details.

Whether you desire peace and quiet for a quality nightís sleep, or entertainment to keep the little ones occupied, a family friendly B&B will exceed your expectations. Go to sleep at night, rest assured that your family is safe and secure and will have a delicious warm meal waiting at the kitchen table when they awake.


After long days of exploring and taking in the incredible sites on your fantastic family getaway, look forward to pulling into the drive way and entering a cozy home, greeted by gracious hosts and a comfortable seat to kick back your heels and unwind.

The next time your family is in need of an enjoyable getaway, book your accommodations at a nearby family friendly B&B, and consider your vacation complete.

Happy Travels,



Thank you that is such wonderful advice...we too have had many family vacations that have started out with trips to explore possible new colleges and have ended up being such fun with all our family involved. You can certainly see some wonderful and unexpected sights on these road trips.

Thank you Pamela for all your ideas. You have inspired my wife and I to take a long road trip this summer while taking our son to his new college. We are planning a different route there this time and hope to take in the many wonderful sights along the way there.
