Join fellow Penn Staters during the sixth annual Penn State Family Escape, July 21–28. Here are 10 reasons to take the plunge and book your trip today!

10. Paradise—Barbados is a slice of paradise, with its white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, abundant attractions and lots to do—or lots to not do while having a drink on the beach.

9. Bougainvillea Beach Resort—This luxury resort is convenient to all of Barbados’ temptations, but stands elegantly apart from other resorts.

8. Activities galore—From tennis to yoga to a water sports center featuring windsurfing, kite surfing and jet skiing, this resort has something for everyone in the family, right on site.

6. A Kids’ Club—Turn your little and not-so-little kids over to students from Penn State’s College of Education, who will entertain them with beach games, arts and crafts, storytelling and more.

5. Nightlife—Enjoy nightly entertainment at the resort or venture out to local hotspots for Caribbean music.

4. R-E-L-A-X!—Get away from it all and relax by lounging on the pristine stretch of beach or indulge in a hot-rocks massage at the on-site spa.

3. Food and beverages—Forget the usual hassle of eating out. The Penn State Family Escape includes all breakfasts, all lunches, two dinners at two on-site restaurants, plus a beach bash dinner and dinner at an historic plantation. All non-alcoholic beverages and standard bar brands of alcoholic beverages are also included.
