TCI named top ten family vacation destination for 2013
Published on January 28, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

The Turks and Caicos Islands has once again gained international recognition by being named in the top ten family vacation destinations for 2013 by Family Vacation Critic.

The Family Vacation Critic is a comprehensive online travel resource for families that offers reviews of family hotels, resorts and destinations. The site which features vacation ideas, family travel tips and an online forum for family travelers says that families kick off the New Year by starting their vacation planning and reports that January is the peak month for family-vacation related searches.

“We’re seeing parents researching their spring and summer breaks immediately after the holidays. In fact, the first day of January was a very popular day for family vacation planning,” says Lissa Poirot, editor of Family Vacation Critic. “With spring break just a few months away, it’s important to move quickly to secure accommodations, especially if you’re looking for a family room or suite, as these are often the first to be booked.”

The Turks and Caicos joins an illustrious group of other family-friendly destinations including Amelia Island, FL., Montreal, Park City, UT., San Diego, CA. and Alaska Cruises. In the region, only The Bahamas was included in the top ten listing.

Commenting on the accolade, Ralph Higgs, director of the Turks and Caicos Tourist Board stated, “This recognition by a leading online family travel guide further adds to the appeal of the Turks and Caicos as a destination tailor-made for this all important market. Our family-friendly resorts combined with our exquisite natural playground lend themselves to blissful vacations each member of the family can enjoy.”
