Author Og Mandino said, “The greatest legacy we can leave our children is happy memories.” Nothing does this better than those created while traveling as a family.
Some of my most fond family memories are the annual trips I took with my parents. From the time our tour bus struck not one, but three buildings in a tiny Italian town, to my first flight as a five-year-old when I matter-of-factly declared that, “Pooh Bear is scared,” these family memories are an important part of my history.
In fact it was the vacation we took to Phoenix when I was a teenager that made me want to move to the Valley of the Sun as an adult. As a Wisconsin native I never knew I could live in a place that was filled with so many flowers and so much sun!
But as anyone who has ever traveled with kids and teens knows, trying to please everyone is a challenge. Thankfully, Arizona has something for everyone, and a myriad of resorts with activities and programs tailored specifically for families.
