How many of you travel with your kids, and their grandparents? That makes you a multigenerational traveler! Michael and I frequently bring Abuela and Abuelo on vacation with our family; and sometimes we just bring my mom, a.k.a. Grandma. It takes a little extra planning but the benefits are so worth the effort.

Experts advise giving everyone their space when traveling with multi-generations; we recommend the cottages at ‘Tween Waters Inn. Take a virtual tour of the cottages now and see all the space they offer, including a full kitchen and up to 3 bedrooms.

Onsite, you won’t have to worry about keeping everyone busy because no matter their age or activity level, there is something for everyone. (And when you travel with grandparents, it’s SO nice when they offer to babysit for a few hours!) When that happens, make a reservation at the Spa. Massage therapy anyone?

For the younger crowd, there’s beach time, pool time and the toddler pool even has a sunshade over top. Older kids or kids at heart? Join them for watersport activities like canoeing, kayaking, even motorboat rentals. Go on your own or be part of a tour. And of course, everyone can join in for things like a sunset sail, dolphin cruise or shelling adventure.


How about golf? In our family, my spouse and Abuelo love to play, and when you stay at ‘Tween Waters Inn, you can tee off for a discount at the Sanibel Island Golf Club. How about tennis? Yep, you can do that, too. Bike rentals are also.


And I haven’t even begun to tell you all things you can do for fun as a multigenerational family ON the island itself. Tweet me I can give you personal recommendations @FlaFamilyGuru.
