We love our screens, but let’s be honest, it’s super easy to get sucked in and miss some of the best things life has to offer: connecting with those around us. This is particularly noticeable when traveling with family, when kids are glued to their screens, missing the incredible opportunities that come with a trip. The best bet for breaking free: having so much fun and adventure that you only pull out the screens to capture the moment. Here’s how we do it at Meritage Collection Hotels and Resorts:
