Decided where you'll go on vacation this year? Whether you'll be visiting a city, going to a resort, or visiting a grandparent's home, advance planning will help you create a memorable experience.

In her Grownup's Guide (Grownup's Guide Publishing) book series, author Diane Chernoff-Rosen gives these tips:

* Look at guidebooks for the area to find exhibits, events, or tours you and your family would enjoy.

* Involve everyone going on the trip in your planning. Kids can make a list of things they would like to do or see. Then have everyone select the top two choices. Try to include these.

* Allow plenty of time for travel, but keep the stops short so your group doesn't get tired or bored. Allow one or two hours at an attraction, for example.

* Bring items to help kids pass the time on the road. Good choices include disposable cameras, snacks, toys, electronic games, and drawing materials.

* If an attraction doesn't interest them, leave even if it is a place you like and may not have an opportunity to see again.

* Make sure kids have physical activity each day. Give them the opportunity to run, play, and make noise if they want to.
