Family Vacations: Best Spring Break Destinations
The Breakers, Palm Beach, FL: A truly family-friendly resort! There are so many activities planned to involve the entire family such as kickball games and Friday night bonfires. They also boast a kids camp for 2 groups of ages, 3-5 and 6-12 which keep them busy with indoor such as arts and crafts with outdoor fun like sandcastle building. Don’t worry about dinner time. They will serve your children their meal with your apps so you can enjoy your dinner in leisure while your kids go and explore the Family Entertainment Center which is attached to the restaurant. The 6,160 square foot center is staffed by 1 staffer for every 5 kids, so they are well supervised while enjoying train sets, blocks, tumbling mats, and even a small movie theater!

Nickelodeon Family Suites by Holiday Inn, Orlando, FL: First of all, this resorts sits on 26 acres and is only 1 mile from Disney World. There are plenty of breakfasts, meet-and-greets and interactive teas for the kids to meet some characters. The resort boasts 2 FREE water parks (yes, free!) that include 7 slides a 400-gallon dump tank and a 4 story interactive water tower (I can only guess that means your kids get to dump some water on some unsuspecting bystanders!) They don’t forget about the little ones, offering a sandy area and a shaded play area with a splash zone. And don’t worry, lifeguards are on duty to help keep a watchful eye out. They also schedule live shows for families to compete against each other in games. Winning is so much more fun when you get to get slimed at the end! (the children, the adults can opt out!)
