1) City Escapes
There are two different ways to have a city escape – either travel to one close to home or go to an opposite side of the country. Some suggestions are Los Angeles, San Diego, New York City, and even Washington D.C. What do these cities have in common? Plenty of cultural activities, like museums and historic sites, combined with kid-friendly entertainment.
2) Short Cruises
Cruises are great because they have regularly scheduled activities for kids of all ages. Parents can relax in one area of the ship, while their kids are under the watchful eye of the ship employees. There’s no shortage of things to do on a cruise, and the offshore excursions can lead to some memorable experiences.
3) All-Inclusive Beach Resorts
When looking for a beach resort to visit over spring break, perhaps consider staying at an all-inclusive one. These resorts charge you one fee up front, which includes drinks, food, and entertainment. You’ll be able to relax, not worry about how many bottles of water or juice your kids are drinking, and will have plenty of fun on the sand.
4) Ski Trips
Finding snow in March or April (prime spring break months) isn’t impossible. There are places like Colorado and British Columbia that will have some ideal skiing conditions during these months of the year. You don’t have to spend every moment on the slopes to have a good time, but you might as well enjoy the outdoor recreation after being cooped up indoors all winter.
5) Beach Getaways
An exotic beach getaway (we suggest Hawaii, Mexico, and the Caribbean) gives your family a chance to spend some time together. There’s nothing simpler than letting your kids wander slightly away to play in the sand while you sit back with a good book and watch the waves.
6) Disney World or Disneyland
Although both of these places will be on the busier side, since other parents had the same idea, a trip to one of these magical locations is well worth it. You might have to wait in lines and reserve your meals early, but the smiles on your kids face when they meet Mickey Mouse will be unforgettable.
