I feel very, very lucky that my kids enjoy traveling with me AND they generally pay their own way now that they are adults with jobs.
During college we did smaller trips like visiting family in other cities or I'd go to the college region and we'd do a vacation weekend in that area. Of course I traveled without them in college too, as before - I have been semi-nomadic for a couple of years now (I work online).
My empty nest coping mechanism is to leave the nest also, I guess.
