- Busier families mean togetherness time is being chipped away.  Many families are taking fewer vacations together--that means the number of adults traveling with children are declining.  Some families hate the idea of having a kid-centric vacation devoid of adult entertainment, and most kids don't want to do what their parents want to do. But as kids head out of school for the summer, we have tips on unique ways to make together-time quality fun for the whole family, build new family traditions and create some great memories in the process.
