We’re all so incredibly busy–work, soccer practice, ballet lessons, school, homework, housework, cell phones, email… You name it. There are a thousand things competing for our attention, and diverting us from family togetherness. It doesn’t take a research study for us to know that there are many benefits of family travel, chief among them the time to focus on family.

We’ll be talking about the benefits of family travel during our June 2 #TMOM family travel-themed Twitter party. While you’re thinking about the wonders of a family vacation, click over to learn all the details of our ongoing sweepstakes in which we’re giving away a chance at family togetherness–a 7-day vacation for a family of four at a Diamond Resorts International® property of your choice! Choose between Florida, Cabos, Las Vegas or Hawaii:
