The trend is here to stay. As more and more baby boomers retire, and seek to spend their golden years in the company of children and grandchildren, boomers and Gen Xers are taking their family reunions on the road as a way to unite the family while enjoying a relaxing vacation at the same time. Shell Vacations Hospitality resorts are highly family-friendly and there are many activities for the whole family to enjoy. Peacock Suites in Anaheim is just minutes from Disneyland® and offers a complimentary shuttle to that magical destination. San Diego’s Harbor Vacations are close to attractions such as the San Diego Zoo and SeaWorld. From museums, parks and cultural centers, cities like San Francisco, Whistler and Honolulu provide many options to pack a multi-gen family’s itinerary. For even more free activities, Shell Vacations provides programs created by on-site directors for adults and children including guided hikes, horseback riding, skiing and zip lining while others offer special services such as baby-sitting, bicycle rentals and PGA-certified golf instruction.
Whether it’s a few mommies, sorority sisters or best friends needing a little time off, Shell Vacations Hospitality offers the perfect girlfriend getaway trip for every season. And nothing can beat the value of staying in stylish suites and studios that can please the most high-maintenance diva down to the low-key lass of the group. Some options include: a spa and wine-tasting retreat in Napa Valley; finding balance and peace on Hawaii’s Kona Coast; or a winter playground on (and off) the slopes of Whistler. At each of the unique Shell Vacations resorts and destinations, girlfriends can play, recharge and reconnect on a worry-free getaway.
Location, Location, Location = Value, Value, Value
These days, travelers are much savvier and look for solid value to ensure that their dollars are well-spent. Not only is the location key, but what kind of value can one truly get out of the activities, accommodations and experiences in a destination? Shell Vacations Hospitality provides the best value, quality and choice for travelers seeking an extraordinary experience for almost every season and region of North America. From European style living in the heart of San Francisco’s cultural arts district and mountain lodge accommodations in Whistler, to Southwest style casitas along the fairways of Arizona’s top-rated golf courses and beach-front lanais overlooking the Hawaiian coast, Shell Vacations offers affordable, quality resort experiences fit for all travelers’ tastes.
Off the Beaten Path
The idea of a vacation or getaway varies in meaning from person to person. For some it means partying in hot spots like Las Vegas, Miami or Cancun. For others it simply means going to a quiet, remote location to escape all the pressures of everyday life. Travelers are looking to spend their time off in more undiscovered locations. Companies such as Shell Vacations Hospitality can offer unlimited options with its collection of 25 one-of-a-kind resorts throughout the United States and Canada. Some examples of destinations “less traveled” in which Shell Vacations provides accommodations include: Door County, Little Sweden in Wisconsin; Mt. Hood, Oregon; Cashiers, North Carolina; and Francestown, New Hampshire. In each of these gems (and several others), there is much history and experience to last a weekend or week’s getaway for any discerning traveler.
Embracing Social Media
Travel companies are paying close attention to customers shopping online for their travel needs. Companies from Southwest and JetBlue to Hertz and Amtrak are using social media to reach travelers – and reach them in real time. Facebook fans, Twitter followers and blog readers can immediately get travel alerts, deals and news about their upcoming trips. In early 2009, Shell Vacations Hospitality launched a Hot Deals Blog posting weekly deals for its customers, many of whom have signed up for the newsletter and regularly check the blog for deals. In addition, the company created a Facebook fan page and YouTube page loaded with images, videos and news updates about the company. Shell Vacations will continue to grow in this area and further provide even more value while listening to their customers closely.
