5 Great Spring Vacation Ideas for the Whole Family

If you have school-aged kids, small or college-aged, spring break is the best time to enjoy a vacation. There are countless major destinations, both in the United States and around the world, that are perfect for a vacation and even for augmentation to their education. You might even have a list of places around the country and around the world that you have been wanting to see more of for a long time. If you want to have a spring break family vacation, you’ll need to pick a location, find transportation and lodging, and possibly make an itinerary. That’s actually a fair amount of planning, and you’ll want to make sure that you have airline passes and hotel reservations before your preferred choices are filled up. But first, you’ll need to pick a location. If you don’t already have a list of twenty places, or your very top preferred location, then you might be interested in finding some top places, both in the United States and abroad, that are prime places to visit on a spring break.

Cancun, Mexico

With white sands and warm weather, Cancun is a great location to go to for a spring break. This is especially true if you are interested in feeling like you are getting to the summer part of the year faster than you actually are. Not only do you have warmer, sunnier weather to look forward to, but you are also close to plenty of educational destinations such as Mayan ruins. Whether you are interested in a day relaxing on the beach, a day at Playa del Carmen shopping, or snorkeling in the shallows next to a reef, you’ll find plenty of things to do.

Washington, DC

If you’re looking for a place that is full of historical significance, and you actually prefer the cooler weather, then Washington, DC might be the location for you and your family. As the capital of the United States, DC is filled with memorials, libraries, and other historic sites. One thing that you might not have known, or at least thought about, is that most spring breaks coincide with the blooming of cherry blossoms. The pinkish purple and white blossoms are fragrant and a rare and short-lived treat for anyone who enjoys flowers. On top of that, DC also has a Cherry blossom festival that is open to the public.

London, England

It might not be the first place that you think of going to for a spring break, but it’s another great location if you are considering a location that is not warm. Much like Washington, DC, London is filled with historical and iconic locations. Everything from the London Eye to the Globe Theatre and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London has more than a spring break vacation’s worth of things to do. If you are looking for London vacation rentals, there are numerous hotels and flats that you can comfortably stay in.

Toronto, Canada

Don’t forget about Canada. Toronto is a great city that is full of things to do. It has shopping, museums, and you’re only a day-trip away from Niagara Falls. If you are considering going to Canada, you can also take day-trips to other areas such as Montreal. There are trains that you can take from Toronto to Montreal to Niagara Falls. What’s nice about this option is that you are able to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

US Virgin Islands

We’ll end on another sunny, warm location. The US Virgin Islands is a very safe destination for those seeking the beach vacation. It’s also inexpensive. White, sandy beaches and blue water await visitors.

Plan ahead to make sure that you have plenty of time to book your rentals, and enjoy your family spring break vacation.
