Are you among the nearly 21 million people who took a multigenerational trip in the last year?

Here are five reasons why gathering the clan matters and how you can make it happen sooner rather than later:

1 Today’s families are spread far and wide. That means more effort is required to maintain and nurture family bonds. Spending relaxed, quality time with your extended family enables the generations to gain important insights into family history. Traveling off-season can provide savings.

During the summer, consider a family friendly beach resort in the Caribbean where everyone can meet on the sand or by the pool for stories and water sports.

2 Sharing resources has rewards. Grandparents, aunts, uncles and godparents have the opportunity to bond with the next generation while giving weary parents a break and a chance to rekindle their relationship.

More hotel companies are reaching out to families of all compositions to help them plan a meaningful holiday. Preferred Hotels recently launched a website to help families find the right destination and activities.

3 The natural cure. Plan a multigenerational trip around camping, hiking, or fishing. Unplug from technology and tune in to the sounds of nature. Encourage the experienced to share outdoor skills that will serve youngsters for a lifetime. Any of nearly 400 national parks would serve as a grand classroom.

4 Active children can be great motivators for aging relatives. Plan a vacation that enables young people to help their less agile relatives get moving.

Many adventure-travel companies specialize in making sure every member of the family receives the right dose of adrenaline from the day’s activity.

5 Show appreciation. Did a member of your family serve in the military or provide some kind of public service? Honor their commitment by making a family visit to a memorial, battlefield, museum or other historical site that might encourage the sharing of his or her individual experience.

Exploring our nation’s capital together will provide an interesting context for any personal stories that might unfold.
