The Family Vacation!


The holiday season for many of us means planning family travel. Are you headed out of town for the holidays with your family? Or will your clan enjoy a “stay-cation” this year? Where do you go and how do you get there safely, affordably and with the least amount of headache while keeping everyone happy? Host Shana Sheehy explores these questions and more with our guests Scott McMurren of Alaska TravelGram and Erin Kirkland of AKontheGo.

Plus, what do you get when you combine volunteering and vacation? It’s called “voluntourism” and an Alaskan family tells us about their trip to Malawi. And senior citizens remember what the family vacation was when they were young in the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s.
