Escape To Europe In The Off Season

     Though traditionally a warm weather destination for Americans, Europe can be surprisingly enjoyable during the off season. Tourist attractions which are typically overcrowded in the summer, late spring and early fall suddenly seem pleasantly sparse. Local residents tend to be more congenial. And, perhaps most importantly, the cost of just about everything spirals downward, including hotel accommodations, airfares, goods and services.

     In London, autumn welcomes visitors with hazy-sunny days and short lines-if any-at such popular attractions as the Palace of Westminster, the National Gallery and the Imperial War Museum. If you're a theater lover, this is the perfect time to visit, as theater seats are more readily available.

     Even if you happen upon inclement weather in London and must wear your Burberry raincoat, you needn't despair; this city knows how to make the best of a chilly clime. Those who have stepped out of a pouring rain into one of the city's 6,000 pubs for some hot tea and shepherd's pie can tell you what a warming experience this is.

     Vienna in the off season may be cold, but the city's arts positively sizzle during the winter and early spring. The various opera and dance companies, orchestras and choirs are in residence, and the balls are in full swing.

     Everything in Vienna is to some extent theatrical, and there is something so pleasingly dramatic about wrapping up against a cold winter's evening with scarves, capes, gloves and hats, and braving the elements to attend a performance at the opulent Vienna State Opera House, the Staatsoper.

     In Paris, too, visitors find much to celebrate in the off season, most especially spring and autumn. Chances are that the skies will be blue while the crowds begin to dwindle. The Eiffel Tower can be seen without pushing and shoving. And it takes contemplative silence and long, leisurely days to see all the art displayed in Parisian museums, from the Louvre to the Musee d'Orsay, the Musee Picasso and the Musee Rodin.

      Visit Europe in the off season and you may never want to travel in peak season again.

Jamaica In a Family Way

Cliffs of Negril

by Margaret Zellers

For Jamaica, it's all in the family. The country is returning to a niche it promoted more than 20 years ago, when it began a "Nannie" program to provide special services for vacationing families. These days nannies can be hired, usually through the hotel services department, on an "as needed" basis. In addition many resorts specialize in family vacations by offering nursery attendants, day camp counselors, and teen age sports and other tournaments.

Beaches Negril Resort
Sandals' Beaches Negril Resort has activities with "fun pals" for teenagers, the Kids Kamp for preteens, and a well-equipped nursery. Ideally placed near the village end of the long stretch of white sand beach that is Negril's waterside "promenade," less than 10 minutes' drive from Negril's airport, and a two-hour drive from Montego Bay's international airport.

Half Moon Golf & Tennis Resort
Half Moon Golf & Tennis Resort, one of Jamaica's Elegant Resorts, can be ideal for families, no matter what the age of children. Offering separate villas near the heart of the resort (the building with the welcome desk, terrace restaurant, and beachfront concessions); a community of multi-room, two story villas-with-pool in another enclave at the eastern end of the sprawling property, beyond Half Moon's shopping center and hospital; and a choice of junior suites and other rooms in the two-story buildings that stretch along the shorefront from the resort's hub, the variety of accommodations can answer any well-heeled family's needs.

Boscobel Resort
SuperClubs's Boscobel Resort , a two-hour drive from MoBay's airport heading east of Ocho Rios, opened with a family focus that includes a zoo, a special area of the resort fitted especially for children, daily programs geared to specific age groups, and many other family-oriented activities. Activities include parasailing, boat rides, and horseback riding.

Boscobel Beach

Point Village
Children 13 years and under are free at Jamaica's Point Village catering to families looking for affordable accommodations in the Caribbean. At the resort, age-appropriate activities are organized by special entertainment coordinators.

The events include beach games, face painting, reggae dance classes, glass bottom boat rides and video games. Opening hours for the program are 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily. Parents can enjoy activities on their own with private baby-sitting which costs about $5 per hour.
