Family Vacations Thrive Style

Every year more than a third of Americans take a family vacation. For some, it’s a long distance road trip, while for others it’s a staycation. Thrive residents took their family vacations this summer and fall, each to a different destination

If you’ve never heard of Great Wolf Lodge, Thrivers Phillip and Joel can tell you all about it. This summer they spent a long

weekend at the Lodge relaxing in the wave pool and mastering the video games in the arcade. It was a great escape for some summertime fun and cooling off.


Who else went on a road trip? The folks at Thrive’s Fairmount residence headed to swanky Newport this summer to visit the Audrain Car Museum. The museum boasts ownership of more than 200 rare vehicles

which rotate in and out of an ever-changing exhibit of twenty vehicles at a time. Following the museum, the Fairmount family headed out for a summertime lunch of lobster rolls and clam chowder. For Thriver Nate Burns it was a perfect day. “The cars were great, the food was good, and the people were very nice. Let’s go again!” he exclaimed.

Last up? Summer was extended into fall for Thrive’s Liberty residents. They enjoyed a family vacation to Hyannis’ Cape Codder Resort. Over the three days, two-night vacation Thrivers hung out at the pool, tried out some new restaurants, and enjoyed each other’s company. Like any other family vacation, they had to agree on how to spend their time. And for each of them, a different memory stands out … Jeff shared “my lobster was awesome,” Joel added “I loved the ice cream,” Ronnie said, “it was exciting to try different foods,” and Phil summed up everyone’s thoughts by sharing “I would love to go back.”
All and all it was an exciting summer filled with an array of adventures and family fun!
