Abstract
Family vacations are a way of life for many families. Now those family vacations are changing due to the change to a Year Round School (YRS) calendar and other changes within the family. The YRS calendar is being implemented in a greater number of schools around the United States each year. The change to the YRS calendar could possibly affect family vacation habits and patterns in regards to the travel party, when travel takes place, travel destination, length of travel, whether travel is taking place or not, mode of transportation, and the decision making process. The leisure travel industry is also becoming aware of the changes that are occurring to the family vacation in response to the implementation of the YRS calendar. The industry and the family working together, the best possible experience for family travel will be achieved.
