Relax on a beach in the Hawaiian Islands

Why we love it?

No matter the time of year, everyone loves a trip to the Hawaiian Islands. You and your family can sunbathe and build sandcastles on the beach, snorkel through the crystal clear waters, or go for a breath-taking bike ride around any of the islands. The world-famous Hawaiian surf season takes place in the winter, so from November through March you and your family can check out the professionals catching waves nearly 30ft high!

 

Soak up the sun in San Diego, CA

Why we love it?

With temperatures resting between the high 60s and low 70s all year round, San Diego offers you and your family the perfect escape from the humid summers or the frigid winters. No matter what time of year, you’ll never be bored. You can learn to ride the waves in family surf sessions, swing by the world famous San Diego Zoo to see over 4,000 animals, or make a trip to Lego Land to check out a 34 foot long dinosaur made entirely of Lego bricks. To top it all off, you can end the day relaxing and watching the sun go down at one of the many beach-side restaurants!

 

Explore the mountains in Park City, UT

Why we love it?

Park City is nestled between three ski and snowboard resorts, making it the perfect setting for both winter and summer fun. During the holiday season, families can hit the slopes 7 days a week. But don’t worry, if you are new to the mountain, all the resorts offer lessons for kids and adults! Once the snow melts in the summer months, families can slide down the Alpine Slide, zip line across the mountains, hike on the countless trails, or horseback ride through the hills.

 

Rent a cabin in Lake Tahoe

Why we love it?

Lake Tahoe is one of the world’s greatest vacation destinations. Whether it’s skiing at Heavenly or Squaw Valley Resorts, kayaking in the shimmering waters of Emerald Bay, or hiking the trails of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Tahoe will keep you and your family entertained. So, no matter the season, treat your family to a special vacation in the mountains this year, we promise you’ll fall in love with it!

 

Take a Cruise…Anywhere!

Why we love it?

What makes a cruise vacation so much fun is that you can take your family anywhere you want any time of year; it is the perfect customized vacation! In the summer months, you and your family can sail off to Alaska to explore the stunning glaciers and even learn to dog sled.  During the cold season, you can hop on board a cruise to the Caribbean or take a trip to the Galapagos.  Cruises offer countless onboard and shore activities, so that you and your family can create the vacation of your dreams.
