Spring Break Travel Destinations for Families

Spring break is on its way! This means fun time for the families. There are some leading spring break travel destinations that you can head for during the holiday for a memorable time with your family.


Spring break travel isn’t just for college students. More families are taking advantage of the time off to get away from their routine daily lives. The great thing about spring break travel versus other holiday travel time is that spring break varies so much. Some students have off around Easter, while others in the middle of March. This means that you can usually get better deals than you can during the other holidays. It also means your destinations aren’t quite so crowded. Plus, many spots advertise perk-inclusive packages at discounted rates to woo the families.

  1. I like to stick more local for sping break, but something like Vermont would be ideal. However, this year they probably had just as much snow or more than we did. I would love to visit in the summer!

  2. One of my fave spring break travel destinations is Florida, however after reading the review Vemont would be a great destination for something different.

  3. I’ve never gone away for Spring Break! I wish we could take a vacation for March Break but unfortunately it isn’t in our budget this year. Maybe the next year!

  4. These are all beautiful spots! We live on Vancouver Island, in Victoria and we are taking our grandkids up to Parksville BC for a few days. It has the most beautiful beach!
