Are you looking to take your family on a memorable vacation but aren't sure where to begin?

As we close out another year, it's fun to look ahead and think about all of the wonderful things that will be happening in our lives. And if you're a parent or grandparent, one of the things you may be looking forward to is taking your family on some amazing trips together. If that's something you're interested in, then read on – because we've got some great news for you!

Let’s take a look at one of the latest trends in family travel: Gramping.

Vacation rental homes are leading the multigenerational accommodations charge! Not only do they provide extended families with more space than the typical hotel room, but you'll also be able to enjoy the home-like conveniences of comfortable living areas and spacious kitchens in addition to plenty of privacy. A luxury suite, complete with housekeeping and guest services eliminates some of the hassles of everyday life. So jump on board, join the fun, and check out these great getaways from the slopes in Colorado and California to the shores in Florida - all while gramping.

Gramping Together- No Age Restrictions

The joy of travel doesn't have to be restricted by age.

You’ve heard about glamping, but get ready for the next travel trend: gramping.

According to Boomer Magazine “grampa-ing" means that grandparents take their grandchildren on vacation to enjoy some quality bonding time together as a family.

Ready to take on the gramping trend with your family? Here are a few gramping vacation destination ideas to get you started in 2022.

Where to Go and What to Do

Breckenridge, Colorado
Breckenridge, Colorado is a sought-after destination for family vacations due to its year-round calendar of activities and events.

Breckenridge is a beautiful mountain town in Colorado that is perfect for a family-friendly vacation. There are many things to do in Breckenridge, such as hiking, biking, and skiing. The town also has a great selection of shops and restaurants. Breckenridge is also home to a variety of events and festivals throughout the year. The Breckenridge Balloon Festival is a popular event that takes place every summer. Families can also enjoy the Breckenridge Music Festival, which features a variety of musical acts. Visit year-round to make wonderful memories with the family!
Park City, Utah
Utah is known to have “The Greatest Snow on Earth” and there's a scientific reason why. Utah's snow is a dry powder that floats atop liquid, making it easier for skiers and boarders to glide down the mountain. It makes sense why powder hounds from around the world flock to Park City. Known for being the United State’s largest ski resort, Park City has more than 330 trails and 7,300 acres of terrain to cater to everyone's skill levels. Carving the mountain not your thing? There is plenty to do off-the slopes. Enjoy the crisp winter weather by admiring the natural beauty of Park City on a guided hike, or test your sense of adventure and experience the thrill of dog sledding.

Lake Tahoe, California
Gorgeous Lake Tahoe is one of the country’s most popular spots for outdoor recreation, specifically hiking. Complete with varying difficulties, Lake Tahoe's trails are perfect for all skill levels, from young children to seasoned grandparents. Our favorite hikes for stunning panoramas and incredible photo opportunities are Plunge Falls or Jumping Rock Valley. These impressive treks are maintained year-round making Lake Tahoe the perfect vacation regardless of the season.

Cape San Blas, Florida’s Forgotten Coast
Whether you're an avid fisherman or a novice hoping to start out on your fishing journey, the Cape San Blas area has plenty to offer for fishing enthusiasts. The shallow waters are great for trout and redfish, while deepwater fish, like Wahoo, challenge those unafraid to venture off away from the shore. Interested in opting for a more relaxing vacation? The town of Port St. Joe is a hidden gem on the Florida coast, complete with white-sand beaches and charming houses to admire while strolling the downtown streets. Explore the waters of Cape San Blas while you paddle on a kayak and finish out the day with a beach bonfire.

Park It!

What better way to learn about America’s history and natural wonders than by visiting some of our most popular parks? Yellowstone, Yosemite, and the Great Smoky Mountains are all excellent choices to get a little fresh air, explore natural wonders and (if you’re lucky), spot the national parks' wildlife inhabitants.

There are plenty of family-friendly destinations from California to Florida, and our other beautiful destinations. Whether you're looking for a weekend getaway, weeklong, or month-long vacation with the whole gang by your side, there is something to suit every taste!
