Family vacations

Two summers ago, my sister planned a family vacation to the beach. She rented a house for a week, and split the cost with my two other sisters and my brother. Unfortunately, I was unable to go because of money. This year we are financially in better shape, and are hoping to plan another family vacation. Picking the destination is the hardest part, because we need to find somewhere that has something for everyone. The guys in the family love to golf, and of course, the girls love to shop. I was thinking of heading to the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing. It is located in the heart of Historic Downtown Branson, Missouri, on Lake Taneycomo, across from the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel. If we were to go in the winter, we could take advantage of their Winter Escape Package. The hotel is only minutes away from the area's 49 theatres, so there would be plenty of things to see. There are also outlet malls nearby, so shopping wouldn't be a problem. The guys would have their golf courses, and the kids would love a day at Silver Dollar City. If I remember correctly, they featured this park on an episode of 17 Kids and Counting, when the Duggar family went there for the day. It looked like something kids and adults would both enjoy. Vacationing here would offer something for everyone, and with it's 242 guest rooms, suites, and condos, and amazing view of the lake, I'm sure we will be comfortable and relaxed. Isn't that what vacationing is all about?
