Planning a winter getaway and not sure where to begin? If the thought of packing, planning, and rushing through the airport makes you want to cancel the trip altogether, keep reading for helpful tips on making travel easier on you and your family.
Plan your wardrobe ahead of time to avoid packing too much (or too little). If you’re going to Mexico for 7 days, make sure you don’t bring enough clothes for fourteen days! Figure out how many sundresses you’ll need, how many bathing suits you’ll wear, and how many outfits you need for a night out. Re-wear certain items –say black Capri pants –with different tops to cut down on the amount of clothes you need to bring.
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. There is nothing worse than rushing through the airport in uncomfortable shoes, too tight jeans, or a top that keeps riding up. If your plans hit a snag – your cab is late, the line through security is longer than the queue at Disneyland –you’re going to want comfortable, flat shoes for running through the airport. The same goes for on the plane. No one likes a seatmate who takes his or her shoes off. Avoid this temptation by wearing comfortable shoes that will respectfully stay on through the flight.
Bring reading material. If you have time, stop at an airport shop to pick up some current magazines. Bring that novel that’s been sitting on your bedside table for months. This is a vacation after all, you can finally indulge in some reading for pleasure!
Hydrate. Airplanes are notoriously dry. With recycled air and low humidity you’re going to need to keep hydrated. Stick to water if you can as alcohol and coffee will further dehydrate you.
Invest in a quality suitcase. If you have a suitcase with good wheels, is the right size (think Goldie Locks – not too big and not too small), and is easy to handle, it will make a world of difference to your travelling experience. Suitcases like Samsonite offer the newest technology and styles.

Sick of the cold? Want to get away from fighting relatives? Instead of staying home this holiday season, consider an inexpensive last-minute getaway. Travel agencies and online destination websites typically offer huge discounts on vacations scheduled through the New Year.
Travel to the Caribbean in style this holiday season. Last minute openings on cruises to the Caribbean mean deep discounts as cruise lines attempt to sell out ships. If you live on the east coast, you’ll likely find a departure port nearby. Cruises to the Caribbean leave from New York, Boston, Maryland, North Carolina and Florida.
The beautiful December weather makes Florida a top choice as a last-minute holiday destination. Florida beaches are perfect for singles and couples. Families with children can join in the holiday celebrations occurring at the theme parks in Disney World and Universal Studios.
Couples and families with a budget can enjoy a five star vacation in Mexico without breaking the bank. Mexican all-inclusive resorts feature fine dining, beautiful beaches and exciting excursions. The temperature is perfect in Mexico during the winter months. Cancun averages a daily temperature of 75 degrees F in December.
For snow bunnies that don’t mind the cold, head to Colorado this holiday season. Many Colorado resorts feature holiday packages through the end of December. Packages typically include nightly accommodations in a luxury chalet, lift tickets, equipment rentals and airport shuttle. Top Colorado spots to check out include Aspen, Breckenridge, Vail and Beaver Creek.
