SURVEY OF THE DECADES
2000s Family Vacations & Travel
What does the family vacation look like in the decade of the 2000s? Is there still such a thing? Of course there is, but it has morphed and changed over the decades. The first place I went to do research were the online travel sites - what with their love of lists of Top Ten this and Top 5 that, I figure they have already done my work for me.

Summer Staycation Part 2
From VivaTerra's newsletter about Staycations. "I asked for your ideas and plans to create a fulfilling and fun summer experience without travel."
Backyard campout. So many of you plan to camp in your own backyards with kids, friends and neighbors. Many ideas centered around good old fashioned fun— lemonade, barbeques, gathering around a fire pit and outdoor games. Here are just a few of those ideas- from basic to elaborate.
C. Chow likes this idea: “Set up camp in the back yard with a fire pit or grill for roasting marshmallows and cooking dinner. If it rains, you can always sleep inside!
From A. Taylor: We like to do an outdoor adventure where we camp out. We take lanterns and watch fireflies. We listen to the neighbor's dogs and pretend they're wolves. We tell spooky stories and laugh a lot. Plus, we get to use indoor plumbing if we need to or grab a snack from the fridge! We also like to do theme movie nights. We dress up to whatever the movie's theme is and have a great time.”
A. MacNevin has a unique idea:
“Invite your friends to a raw food potluck and unbarbecue!”
