Does your family traditionally take a vacation during the summer months? If so, you are probably already getting excited to head out of town soon. Do you have your destination picked out already? If you're looking for ideas on the best places to stay, you've come to the right place.
Along The Way - Maybe your destination will take only one day. If so, you obviously don't need to find a place to stay along the way. On the other hand, maybe your trip will take an extra day or more of travel. Think of the things you will want in your accommodations.
If you have kids, even before you arrive at your resting spots they'll probably be asking, "Can we swim right when we get there?" So, look for accommodations that have a swimming pool. Also, if you have kids, you might want to ask for a suite that has an extra sleeping area and an extra bathroom.
If you plan to get up early to hit the road the next day, it might be helpful to eat breakfast right where you spent the night. With that in mind, consider accommodations that include breakfast as part of the cost of your stay.
At Your Destination - When you arrive at your final destination, you'll probably be very ready to settle into wherever you'll be staying. After that, though, you'll probably have a list of things you want to do while you're on vacation. Consider that when you make reservations.
If you are especially interested in going to the area's historic sites, find a place to stay that is close to as many of them as you can. Maybe the biggest chunk of your time will be spent at a theme park. If so, find out if the theme park has accommodations on the property. If that doesn't work, find accommodations that are close to the theme park.
Think of trying something new. For instance, you might find an old farmhouse that has been turned into a bed and breakfast.
As you plan the accommodations for your summer vacation, don't wait too long to make reservations. Also, if you choose a place to stay that is part of a chain, the agent might be able to make reservations for you at other locations that will be part of your trip. Look around for lodgings near the place you want to vacation at.
