family beachWe’re talking meaningful travel on our Oct. 24 Twitter party and our sponsor, Tauck Bridges family travel tours is giving away a meaningful grand prize: an iPad2.

How do you make a family vacation meaningful? Where is the most inspiring place you have visited on a family vacation? Who is the most memorable person you met? How can travel help bridge the generation gap in your family?

Join us from 9-10 pm ET on Oct. 24 to answer those questions and more. Our Twitter parties are always fast, fun and funny. So brew a cup of tea or pour a glass of wine, put the kids to bed and join us to share your thoughts on family travel.
