(NEW YORK) — “Are we there yet?” It’s the age-old question asked by kids on family vacations everywhere. And while it can seem like children ask it hundreds of times during the course of a family vacation, it’s actually far fewer, according to a new survey.
The question is asked an average of nine times on a seven-day family vacation, according to Cambria Suites, a hotel chain. For parents of kids six and younger, however, you can expect to be asked the dreaded question 13 times.
The survey revealed a few other family vacation tidbits. While most respondents (65 percent) view their family vacation experiences as positive, for instance, parents come home exhausted. One in four reported needing a vacation after returning from their vacation.
