TWchats recap: Family travel, August 2019

As we entered peak summer season, it seemed like a good time to tweet with travel experts about the latest family-travel trends. The chat was hosted by Travel Weekly sister publication, TravelAge West, which also publishes Family Getaways.

TravelAge West editors were on hand to facilitate the discussion about all things family.

Multiple options for family members is one of the keys to a great vacation. Of course, in a family-travel chat -- as in a family-travel vacation -- not all things are about the kids. Did someone say "Bionic Bar?" (Oh, yes! @royalcaribbean).

When we tweet about family travel, one question that inevitably comes up is: So what are the kids actually going to EAT?

Our chats often ask about trending travel destinations. Our @JainchillTW identified a combination of trends: Adventure and family travel. The continued boom in multigenerational travel, and the distances that family groups are willing to travel, was the focus of a Travel Weekly cover story by Christina Jelski, "Clans on the move."

How to plan, book and travel the ultimate family-friendly vacation? Our travel-advisor experts on #TWchats know the answer.
