Piling into the car for a camping trip or other vacation became a family ritual in the 50s and 60s with the kids endlessly wondering and often saying "Are we there yet?" These vacations produced memories for parents and children across generations. To reminisce on these irreplaceable times, KVIE public television presents Are We There Yet?
The popularity of the home movie camera coincided with the post-war baby boom and the advent of the station wagon. The interstate highway system made it easy for young families to hit the road and they did so in earnest, preserving their vacation memories in canisters of eight-millimeter film.
If you grew up in California in the 50s and 60s, you probably remember the Big Orange Drive-In, the old Nut Tree, and the Milk Farm. In this new special produced by KVIE, take a trip down memory lane to some of your favorite vacation spots. From Yosemite to Yellowstone, Disneyland to Death Valley, relive family road trips through old home movies and interviews with the people who took them.
