TIPS FROM THE EXPERT HOSTS for “Fall is Family Time:”

Eileen from Taking the Kids says:

“This Twitter event is being sponsored by the beach resort town of Puerto Vallarta on Mexico’s Pacific Coast. If you follow them @PuertoVallarta you already know that this destination is famous for its beautiful beach and calm surf; friendly people; art galleries and small museums; locally sourced, fresh cuisine; wonderful resorts and charming boutique hotels; water sports and eco-tours; even Mexican folk dance classes in the main square. Join us Thursday, September 8 from 9pm-10pm ET to learn why Puerto Vallarta is ideal for an easy, authentic, relaxing Mexican holiday — one where you and your entire family can reconnect.”

Why travel in the Fall? Listen to My Family Travels for all the best reasons: “Fall is family time in many destinations, the secret “low season” when travel essentials like great rates, cooler weather, and fewer crowds align. Fall is the ideal family time for grandparents and grandchildren, babymooning couples with their babies, and savvy parents who know they can score a bargain without kids missing a lot of schoolwork.”
