All of these places sound like fun…I love Orlando and San Antonio for sure! I try to avoid vacations during spring break though…too crowded!!
I’ve been to both Orlando and D.C. for Spring Break. The weather was perfect and we had such a great time exploring the city and the Disney parks.
We would love to take a family vacation to Orlando. There is so much to do! We would definitely have to see Walt Disney World ad Sea World.
