  • We started planning for our vacation around November. We are taking a 2-3 week road trip at the end of May to Washington, DC, NYC, Boston and the mountains/coastal NH. So far we have most of our activities planned but haven't started figuring out the hotel situation yet!

  • depends on where we are going. We start talking abouit vacation know so we get an idea of where everyone wants to go. Then we look at what summer camps the kids will be going to and when they are. Our vacations can sometimes we planned a few weeks in advance, or a few months.

    Sometimes we leave on a whim and plan as we go.

  • Depends on where we're going. Our big summer vacation with the kids is planned about 6 months in advance because the beach houses sell out quickly. For the trips DH and I go on, we've planned them in a week, but sometimes as much as 3 months in advance. We love to travel, so if I come across a good airfare to the Caribbean we try to jump on it.

  • Usually a year in advance. We have to pick my hubs vacation time a year ahead so we plan our trips then too. Weekend trips whenever we can.

  • I usually start about a year in advance. This year is different as we're expecting a baby in the spring so we're really not sure if we're going anywhere.
