Ideas for a Family-Friendly Spring Break
August 9, 2019
If the words "spring break" conjure up images of college student hordes and 24/7 chaos for a week, you're in for a treat. Here are some of the top spring break destinations that families will love.
From mid-March to Mid-April the cherry blossoms take center stage in the Capital City. Fill your day with fascinating museums that are packed with history, as well as inspiring national monuments of fallen soldiers, presidents and political figures. D.C. is also home to eclectic neighborhoods, a crave-worthy food scene, historic hotels and more. There's something for every age to learn and enjoy here.
Although this city isn't a warm-weather destination, it can still be a memory maker for families. The Dells is known as the waterpark capital of the world and boasts world-class indoor parks. With all of this fun going on inside, who cares what the temp is outside?
Hilton Head, South Carolina
If you're an outdoorsy family, Hilton Head will be a great spring break location. Start your trip by exploring the island via bike on one of the many trails. How about a zipline ride through South Carolina’s Lowcountry? Or a jolly cruise aboard a pirate ship? You won't run out of fun here!
Riviera Maya, Mexico
While college kids crowd the beaches of Cancun, just 60 miles south, you can relax and enjoy a family-oriented spring break on the sunny beaches of Riviera Maya. Explore Mayan ruins, cool off in underground caves and crystal clear cenotes in quiet relaxation. Several resorts in the area offer great activities for kids and parents alike.
How About a Cruise?
Here's a spring-break choice where you're sure to be in the company of other families. There’s no need to worry about where you're going to eat or how you’re going to get from one attraction to the next: everything is all taken care of for you. Most ships have child and teen programs that offer plenty of activities and excursions to keep your kids busy while you enjoy some R&R.
