Caribbean Family Travel

Q: Hi Playground! I’d love to book a warm weather, family getaway for Thanksgiving or Christmas; we want easy nonstop flights and beaches, with other activities, too. Normally we’d consider the Caribbean, but is it too soon after Hurricane Irma, Jose, and the current threat Maria? Is it okay to visit the Caribbean now? Thanks ~ AP

#TravelTuesday Q&A: Spring Break Sweet 16

Spring Break

Q: Hi Playground: Do you have any ideas for a sweet 16 trip for late April spring break? It will be four of us: My daughter and her friend and me and the other mom.

The girls are interested in Atlantis, the moms were hoping for something not quite as hectic. ~ Thank you! Shari S.
