Spring Travel Ideas for the Family


Searching for spring travel ideas for the family? If you live up north, then you would surely benefit from the idea of going south. Just like birds, your ideal climate for spring would be the sunny warmth of the beaches of Florida, San Diego California, or even Hawaii. The Caribbean, Mediterranean, Southeast Asian, and Latin American countries also have perfect climates to go swimming. Here are some ideas you might want to consider.

Orlando, Florida
Orlando, Florida has a variety of theme parks that kids, teens, and adults could all enjoy. There’s Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Orlando is your best bet if you have younger kids. They have this curiosity that the different activities in theme parks will satisfy.

 

Kauai Surf School, Hawaii
Surf, sun, and sand. Families with older kids on spring break can enroll in group sessions while grandparents have a relaxing read on the shore. For sure, learning to surf is something that your older kids would enjoy as well as seeing their parents getting wiped out.

Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo, Mexico
For those of you who want a laid back vacation, Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo in Mexico can be the perfect place to go. It’s perfect for new parents who want to bring their toddlers along. You could go biking along the nature reserve or have your kids play with the dolphins at Delfiniti Hotel. Afterwards, you can grab a bite of real Mexican enchiladas.

Washington, DC
Drive with your kids to the nation’s capital where the cherry blossoms are in full bloom this season. In fact, if you’re lucky enough, your trip might just be highlighted by the National Cherry Blossom Festival, which commemorates the receipt of Washington of the thousands of cherry blossoms from Tokyo. This is a perfect opportunity for photography enthusiasts to take pictures of the colors of spring.

A cultural and historical tour of the city is also a must. It is rich with museums, monuments, and libraries. In fact, some government buildings like the White House provide guided tours to its visitors.

Club Med, Dominican Republic
Club Med makes it easy for parents to travel with a very young set of children. The oceanfront suites provide you with essentials like bath tubs, baby food, and strollers, and this is what makes the trip worthwhile. There are plenty activities for your pumpkin patch, such as camps and baby gyms where both kids and parents get to spend time with each other.

Liberty of the Seas, A Royal Caribbean Cruise
If you have the luxury of taking a long leave from work, then you should consider going on a cruise. In fact, you might want to take the Royal Caribbean Cruise if you have kids in the college bracket. The ship, Liberty of the Seas, is the largest one in the world and has plenty of athletic activities for them to do. Perhaps it could be your subtle way of telling them to lose a few pounds. Apart from the multitude of dining options, there is a water park, a theatre that offers lessons to the passengers, as well as a deck to lounge on.

Spring break may be tainted with images of wild American college students letting it loose thanks to MTV, but in fact, spring break is one such occasion that can bring a family closer together. Since schools from different states end at different times, not many people go on vacation all at the same time. This means that, compared to its summer and winter counterparts, spring breaks are conducive to sharing quality time with the family when travelling. These spring travel ideas for the family are just a few examples of the many out there. All you have to do is gather your kids, find a place to go, and book your flight.
