Although statistics show that people are taking less vacation time these days, there’s a lot to be said for carving out valuable time for the whole family to vacation together. Real family vacations are more than just a relaxing and rejuvenating getaway: a vacation can create memories that stay with you for a lifetime.
Mary Ann Paquette and her family certainly understand the value of an annual, extended-family vacation. Three generations of Paquettes have rented the same Cape Cod vacation rental in Orleans each year for nearly two decades. This past August, the Paquettes invited us to their vacation home, and we got to see firsthand why they cross the bridge to be together on the Cape every summer!
We absolutely love hearing stories about vacationers who Get Back to the Cape and Islands year after year. And we are struck each time by the passion they have for this special place and the varied reasons for returning every summer to create valuable new memories.
