Are We There Yet?

A new survey conducted by Cambria Suites found that kids ask their parents "Are we there yet?" an average of nine times during a weeklong family vacation. Parents with children six-years-old and younger can expect to be asked "Are we there yet?" about 13 times.

Among survey respondents, about half (49 percent) have ever taken a family summer vacation. Of these, nearly one in four adults (24 percent) report that they need a vacation when they return home from a family trip.

Seven percent of respondents said they look forward to a "solo" business trip as a way to recover from a family vacation.

Still, nearly two-thirds (65%) of respondents found their family vacation experiences relaxing and admit that there is "nothing better" than a great family vacation.

It seems that in a world full of change, as long as there will be family summer vacations "Are we there yet?" will remain a well-established part of the experience.
