Traveling with family members and friends of various ages can be challenging, but can also be so rewarding! Join us as we complete the Multigenerational Travel Badge and make memories to last a lifetime. The Multigen Travel Badge walks you through trip planning for a group consisting of different generations, learning from others who have done a trip like this before, and actually taking the trip! Can’t go far? No problem, you can earn this badge right in your backyard. 

In our next couple of posts we include ideas about how to be a tourist in your own town or state and complete the badge nearby. We’ll also share with you how we earned this badge on a recent family trip to Germany. We’ll tell you what we learned about traveling with teens and grandparents from others online as well as from our own experience. Head over to our Instagram or Facebook to get travel tips in short snippets and be sure to follow our blog posts for more in depth reporting on our badge-getting experience.
