Once you’ve picked your destination, your next instinct will likely be to search for top ten lists or to Google “Things to Do.”This, however, will only provide you a very superficial listing.

    I’m not opposed to taking the kids out of school for a few days, if it means better fares for a big trip, or better weather for a destination, but that two-week window would be the perfect time for our family getaway!
