Come Together: Mother-Daughter Trips

Want to show gratitude to your mother, the original Wonder Woman? Have a teenage daughter immersed in MySpace-era angst? Is an appointment necessary to connect with your Blackberry-dependent sister? Wise up to the value of getting away from it all — together.

On Fodor’s Forums, women are planning trips with the most important women in their lives — mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends, and all for the sake of girls-only bonding. Check out where they’re going and how they’re doing it.

Bangkok on a Budget

“I’m going back and forth on the tour vs. independent option. You may remember, I’m the mom pushing 50 who is planning a trip with my 24-year-old daughter in February. Can I REALLY do it independently just as cheaply?” (more)

“Our plan is to stay downtown and treat ourselves to some spa services and shop. Does anyone know of either a good day spa or a hotel spa in Toronto?” (more)

Zip Through the Rain Forest

“I visited Costa Rica with my 67-year-old mother last month. My mom actually did the ziplines! It had been her idea that we go, which surprised me because she’s scared of heights. She was terrified when we first arrived, but we had a really terrific guide.” (more)

Broadway with Teens

“I live in California and figured out long ago that if I want to have NYC in my life I have to include the family…I have groomed my girls to love NY the way I do…I am looking into theater tickets for Friday night.” (more)

A Kids-free Weekend

“For a longer vacation or with kids, I’d choose Playa, it is more appealing overall. But for what you are doing – a quick girls getaway – I’d want to maximize leisure time and you will find what you want in Cancun.” (more)
