When the kids are away, the grown-ups can play. For some travelers like young professionals or couples, the best month to explore and take a break are the months when everyone’s gone home or at school. Shoulder seasons provide a great opportunity to take a leave and let the kids spend more time with their grandparents.

Whether to recharge, rekindle romances or simply have fun, taking a vacation break is healthy for the mind and the body. Loosen up and take it easy with these activities  and return home refreshed!
