One of the increasing trends we
are seeing in today’s travel scene is the changes in spending patterns in
parents with young children. This article presents the case for increased
catering for children in luxury resorts and five and six star accommodation.
With shifting patterns of wealth,
demographics and social structure, we see a change in the holiday patterns of
young hip parents with little kids. No longer content with the standard
everyday budget motels and caravan parks their parents, the baby boomers, the
not-so-young gen X urban elite are taking to the skies and the resorts in
style, and bringing the kids!
Children are now the fashionable
accessory for the new wealthy urban elite dominated by the internet media. As
family size shrinks, divorce rates soar, and women have babies later, vacation
time is a precious commodity. While maintaining an ongoing high profile career,
the demands of time pressure mean that families have less time to holiday together,
more cash, and subsequently demand better service, higher level of facilities
and real quality in their travels.
This is a trend which Hoteliers,
marketers, airlines would be very courageous to ignore. Mothers days lunches in
leading luxury hotels in major cities such as the Four Seasons in Sydney are
hosting a childcare package with DVDS, kids’ party food, biscuit decorating in
a posh room adjacent to the main dining area where parents can happily quaff
expensive French Champagne for hours and hours while the kids are entertained.
Cost to implement- practically nothing. Price for the adults… anything you
want to charge them, the more the better… and they will tell their friends.
This is a point where price does not actually matter. How much would you pay
for the privilege?
Time starved, exhausted,
multitasking supermoms are not asking, but demanding a …

With sweltering heat and high
triple digit temperatures in Phoenix, it’s the perfect time to head to up north
to get outdoors and experience Arizona’s beautiful and lush high mountain
forests and wilderness areas. For a wonderful and scenic day trip and easy
hike, take a journey to the top of Arizona by hiking the Kachina Trail, in the
Kachina Peaks Wilderness, Flagstaff, Arizona.
Located high up in the San
Francisco peaks, sits Arizona’s tallest peak, Mt. Humphreys which rises to an
elevation of 12, 643 feet which you can climb to the top of on the Mt.
Humphrey’s Trail, one of the most challenging hikes in all of Arizona. However,
if you’re up for more of an easier day hike instead, then I highly recommend
checking out the beautiful Kachina Trail, which is also located in the Kachina
Peaks Wilderness and like the Mt. Humphrey’s Trail, is also located at
Arizona’s Snow Bowl Ski Resort and if you’re up for the added adventure, you
can take a very scenic sky ride right up to the top of Arizona at elevation,
11,500 feet, for a spectacular and amazing panoramic view of all the
surrounding Flagstaff and Kachina Peaks Wilderness area, without having to
climb it yourself too!
To get to the Kachina Trail from
Phoenix you’ll want to head out of town on I-17 north to Flagstaff. We left
Phoenix at 9am on a Saturday morning and arrived in Flagstaff at around
11:30am. The drive from Phoenix to Flagstaff is roughly about 2.5 hours and 148
miles. Once you arrive in Flagstaff, the freeway ends and you will exit onto
89A north. Follow 89A through town till you come to route 180 north Snow Bowl
Ski Resort, then make a left. You’ll take route 180 for about another 30
With rising temperatures and
record breaking heat in the Arizona desert, the summer months are the perfect
time for heading up north to higher elevations, 7000ft or higher, where the
temperatures are cooler and you can get outdoors again to enjoy more of the
natural beauty and diversity that is state of Arizona and its terrain. For a
quick and easy summer day trip and a quiet, less crowded, easy-moderate hike
with breathtaking panoramic views of Arizona, I recommend hiking the Woodchute
Trail, in the Woodchute Mountain Wilderness, near Jerome.
Starting out from Phoenix, you’ll
want to take I-17 north till you reach the exit for Route 260 West, Cottonwood/
Clarkdale & Jerome. We started out around 8:30 am on a weekday so the
traffic and road conditions were pretty good. We noticed there seemed to be a
lot of Arizona Highway patrol cars everywhere so be very careful to watch your
speed. After a few short stops along the way, we arrived in the small town of
Cottonwood at around 10:30am, made a left onto route 89A South, and followed
the signs for Jerome. On 89A South, you’ll begin a winding ascent up in
elevation from 3000 feet up all the way up to 5000 feet, with some really
beautiful views of the surrounding Verde Valley behind you.
We arrived in the historic town of
Jerome and after a short break to stretch our legs, we continued on our journey
heading south on 89A, now called the “Mingus Mountain Scenic Byway”.
With many tight twisting, hairpin curves and a winding ascent up in elevation
now from 5000 feet to 7000 feet, the views along the way are absolutely
spectacular! This very scenic drive from Jerome to the top of Mingus Mountain
is roughly about 8 miles. Once you reach …
