You’ve made it through the holidays, you’ve taken care of everyone on your list. You’ve run around, you’ve shopped, you’ve cooked and now you are ready for a break. It’s a new year and time to think about a new adventure; time to disconnect from the world and reconnect with your family. It’s time to build new memories and experiences.
Travel is a great way to build lifelong memories and create new experiences for your family, and there is no better time to plan a trip. When it’s cold outside, we snuggle up in chilly Northeast Ohio and think about where we want to go. Whether you are looking for spring break or summer vacation, it’s not too early to start planning. I think Orlando, Fla., just has so much to offer families.
