I'd like to take my parents, teen and grade-school child on a trip that everyone will enjoy. We rarely get to spend time together and I'd like to travel in a manner that fosters us spending fun, quality time together. Any suggestions?
I would suggest possibly taking a pole of where each person would like to go then narrow it down to a place where all would enjoy. To get us to spend time together my family likes to play boards games which gets us talking, laughing, and joking with one another. There are family ranches and family retreats that are fun.

Finding an activity that suits all is a difficult task but not an impossible one. When everyone is engaged it makes for an enjoyable and bonding experience. There are trips and outings that all can enjoy in. Some may include minature golfing, an art museum (which also caters to children), a dairy farm, apple picking, etc.
What needs to be taken into consideration is the needs of each group of varied ages. For example, if you select to go apple picking go to an orchard where there are places that you can rest if someone needs to, make sure that they have varied activities such as vegetable picking or berry picking which is less strenuous and caters more toward older persons and children, and has facilities which offer food, snacks and a jovial atmosphere for all to enjoy.

Obviously this greatly depends on your budget. If you're on a tight budget, how about a day trip to the nearest science museum? These days, they are very hands-on so that all ages will enjoy the interactivity -- even your hard-to-reach teen.
If you have a bigger budget, then check out the many deals available these days on cruises. Cruises are fantastic for all ages because there truly is something for everyone. For example, your teen will be able to meet others his/her age at the teen disco later at night when your parents or younger child might be ready for bed. Your parents might enjoy some of the educational seminars offered on many cruises. And your child will certainly have fun at the cruise ship's youth program. However, the beauty of cruises is that at dinner time you will all be together and generally, most families explore port cities/towns together so that you will certainly have bonding time throughout the cruise.
