Summer vacation is an incredible time for school-age kids for a bunch of reasons. I mean, let's start with the obvious. Who wouldn't love roughly three months off from waking up early, taking tests, homework and the general rigors and demands of school? Yes, June, July, and August are awesome months to find yourself with free time. Now while this time is magical for the kids, and can really be fun (at times) for parents, there is also an element of stress for parents when the kids are off, and the call of duty for work for parents persists as always. What do you do with the kids?

Sure there are camps — like sports camps, nature camps, band camp, and all that, but by August the kids are tired of those, and your pocketbook is surely feeling the child-care sting. What do you do then? How about setting up a multi-generational visit that creates a win for everyone involved? Time spent with Grandparents over summer vacation at kid-friendly attractions creates treasured lifelong memories for both grandparents and kids and can be a huge relief for parents looking for stimulation for young ones. And what about the thrill grandparents get with some time with Grandkids? There is perhaps nothing better for keeping one feeling young.
