As the weather begins to heat up, so does the number of opportunities to take the family away from its normal routine. A family vacation is a great way to liven up those dull days of spring and summer. There is a whole wide world out there just waiting to be experienced. Spending quality time together in an unfamiliar environment is a great way to grow closer together. As you begin planning, consider the following 4 family vacations ideas for the spring and summer.

Go to Spring Training

For something different this Spring Break, pack up the family and head to either Florida or Arizona. The weather in both places in fantastic, and there are a host of baseball games waiting for you to watch. Baseball is referred to as America’s pastime for a reason. Generations of families have enjoyed taking in a game. It is an enjoyable and affordable experience, and it makes for a great spring vacation to remember. There are a range of other family activities in Vegas that you can take part in when the games are over as well. Arizona has some great water parks and hiking venues, while the beach is never very far away in Florida. Disney World is a great place to visit. In short, attending Spring Training is like getting two holidays in one.

Take a Cruise

You do not have to be confined to one location when taking your spring or summer vacation. Consider a Caribbean or Mexican cruise to see some sites outside of America. Most cruise lines today have an array of on board activities to keep the kids and teenagers entertained. There is always something to do on the ship for every member of the family. Seeing a few great destinations along the way will be icing on the cake. Each port of call will bring a new culture and people to experience and explore. The kids and parents alike will enjoy shopping, eating new food, and visiting local attractions that are unlike anything the family is used to. This is also an all-inclusive vacation that is easy to budget for. With all of the meals and drinks already taken care of, along with lodging, it is easier to facilitate spending and just enjoy the company of one another.

Visit an Aquarium

Almost every major city in the U.S. today has a great aquarium located nearby. This is a great way to explore the world beneath our oceans in an up close and personal way. The kids will get to see a variety of shows that display these magnificent creatures, and the education received will be overshadowed by the amount of fun that the entire family will have. Aquariums contain a variety of marine life that one never really has the opportunity to experience out in the open. Coral reefs, dolphins, and even variety of fish imaginable is never beyond the realm of possibility. This will be an experience that everyone will be talking about for quite some time to come.

Head for the Beach or Mountains

Spring and summer can really heat up at times. When it does, head to the beach or the mountains to cool off. Consider alternating the two every year so that the family does not get bored. Pack your favorite gear, plan some great outdoor activities, and let the fun begin. There are many great mountain ranges and beach resorts to explore, so begin the planning process early.

These are 4 great family vacation ideas that everyone is sure to enjoy during the spring and summer months. Get every member of the family involved before making a decision. Plan out some activities that everyone will enjoy and then let the good times roll.
