Thinking Greece for our Summer 2014 Family Trip

Jump to last reply

We've been traveling a lot with the boys now 14 and 11 and I have always wanted to go to Greece - we thought of saving it for when the boys are off on their own and we can go the romantic route....

We don't like to laze around on our vacations - we want things to do, adventures to take on, history to learn about, and culture to absorb. As beautiful as Lake Como was - honestly - we were bored...

So question 1 - should we wait or go with the boys?

Question 2. If we go as a family - which islands should we focus on for maximum things to do?

FYI - We aren't mega/large ship cruise fans.

Thanks!!!!

We were trying to get to Africa or Asia next summer - but I think it may just be way to expensive!!!

If you have any other suggestions please fire away!!!!

Places we have traveled already with the boys:

Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Spain
Peru, Argentina
Panama, Caribbean Islands, Costa Rica
Alaska, Hawaii
Vancouver, Whistler, Mont Tremblant
GTNP, Yellowstone, South Dakota
North Carolina, NY, DC
California, Arizona
