My partner's parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year, so to commemorate the big event we decided to organize a vacation for the whole extended family at an all-inclusive resort.

Here's how I did it.
Sixty percent of travelers said that what matters most when thinking about a dream trip is to have an authentic experience. We want to show the kids the world, traveling to foreign cities. We want to share the excitement of seeing exotic wildlife. We want to cruise and kick back on a beach, enjoying first-class service all the way. It's easier than you think.
