There isn’t much that can compare to taking a family vacation. Whether it’s just you and the spouse or a few kids in tow your vacation will undoubtedly be an adventure. Adventures are meant to be enjoyed and remembered and Best Buy has some great tips to help that happen.

I think one of the most important things is staying connected. I know, I know – many people like to ‘unplug’ on vacation but what if there’s an emergency?? Making sure you have cell service regardless of where you are can seriously mean the difference between enjoyment and disaster.

So, even if you plan to ban the internet and all communication with the outside world, consider keeping your phone on and connected.

 Family Travel Always Connected

Another issue that can prevent you from having the time of your life is worrying about what’s happening back at home. Did you lock the doors? Turn the stove off? Unplug the iron? Maybe you are having second thoughts about the house sitter you chose. These things can really put a damper on your family vacation but they don’t have to. Best Buy has an amazing selection of home monitoring products.

These include security cameras that allow you to ‘check in’ whenever you are in doubt. This is another time when staying at least somewhat connected comes in handy!

Saying ‘I Do’ is a moment many people begin dreaming of early on. I don’t think I had hit puberty yet when I started planning for my wedding. Flowers, brides maid dresses, heck even caterers! As we grow up we start to realize just how much really goes into planning a wedding and all of our well thought, albeit juvenile inspired plans come tumbling down. Stress kicks in as the real planning begins and we start to wonder

Between shopping, new curriculum, and the change to everyone’s daily schedules it is easy to feel overwhelmed between the fear and excitement. Best Buy is there to help students and parents by offering up a wide array of tech savvy products essential for a successful school year.
