A Vacation for Every Member of the Family

Photo by Holland America Line Eileen Ogintz, nationally syndicated columnist and creator of “Taking the Kids,” contributed this blog post on behalf of sponsor, Holland America Lines. Here’s one vacation I’ve found that can please every member of the family. I’m talking about a cruise. Some 40 percent of grandparents are traveling with their grandchildren, AARP reports, and Holland America is a popular choice for these multigenerational groups. Families enjoy Holland America’s upscale, mid-sized ships ranging from 1,258 to 2,666 guests -- smaller than many megaships but with plenty of onboard entertainment.

7 Reasons to Get LASIK Eye Surgery

This is a Sponsored Post for Barnet Dulaney Perkins, however, all opinions are 100% my own.  When I was nine, I got my first pair of prescription eyeglasses.  I remember thinking to myself that I was now in the "4 eyes" club. I was teased.  I really did not like wearing glasses and within a couple of years I started using contact lenses, even though I was probably too young for them. As you probably know, there are a couple of steps to cleaning contact lenses. I knew them, but as a young kid I would always forget the second step and end up burning my eye balls. This earned me a few trips to the ER to get my eyes flushed and... let's just say that …

5 Accessible Destinations to Visit in Costa Rica

This trip was made possible through Il Viaggio Travel and Family Travel Association. However, all opinions are my own. I recently spent six days in Costa Rica enjoying everything the country has to offer through Costa Rica Family Holidays and Family Travel Association. We could not have truly enjoyed these beautiful sites without our amazing tour guide Luis Diego Soto from Il Viaggio Travel. Visiting these amazing locations, I could not help but think about the people in my life that may have passed up an opportunity like this because of their accessibility issues. They may have denied themselves of the experience of a lifetime by assuming that these places were not accessible for them. Everyone should have the right to travel and experience what different …
