- You don't have to travel to the ends of the earth for a great time.
Need a vacation but don't want the hassle and expense of flying? Dreading the thought of multiple generations crammed into a 200 square foot hotel room and sharing a bathroom?
Pile in the car for a family vacation, pack up some healthy snacks, and throw in the sun screen, your favorite DVDs and you might even discover some extra perks to make the adventure even more affordable.
According to the experts at ResorTime.com, more families are taking advantage of spacious condominium accommodations in drive-to resort destinations throughout Southern California.
"We're seeing an uptick in bookings," says Sherri Weeks, General Manager of ResorTime.com. "It may be partially due to our restaurant gift certificates, which are an added bonus for vacationers. However, our research is showing that families simply favor roomy, amenity-rich accommodations over cramped, expensive hotel rooms, especially during times like this."
"It's no secret that many popular beach front properties are ready to make unique deals to encourage reservations," says Weeks. "The good news is these benefits are passed on to travelers."
Experts say that staying at resorts provides a family with more options than traditional hotels: extra bedrooms, kitchens, DVD players, game rooms, and planned activities. Many offer bikes, laundry facilities and barbecues. The average resort accommodations are in the area of 1000 sq. ft.
