Then Spring Break 2013 is ready for you!
Spring Break for families means something completely different than the college crowds. Families should be aware of the “party destinations” that may not make for a family friendly vacation.
What are the top picks for a fun and fabulous Family Spring Break? We consulted some of the experts …
Orlando, Florida and Disney are the #1 choice for families planning a spring Break. With multiple parks and entertainment options, families can be sure that there will be something for everyone! An Easter parade, meet and greets with Mr. & Mrs. Easter Bunny and Easter Egg hunts are all on the agenda for Easter week at Disney.
If theme parks are not the way you want to spend your Spring Break, head West – the Hilton Sedona Resort and Spa in Sedona, Arizona has two weeks of family focused activities planned from March 23 to April 6, 2013. Pick from Family Movie Nights in the ballroom, Ice Cream Socials and S’More making every night. They even have special spa services targeted for the youngest visitors (Youth Lavender Massage, Fabulash Chocolate Facial, Pixie Nail Mani, Twinkle Toes Pedi – Anyone?)! Plus, the natural grandeur of the Sedona area invites lots of family treks through the Red Rocks.
Want to get some powder time in on the slopes before warm weather arrives? The Travel Channel lists Smuggler’s Notch, Vermont as one of their Top Ten Family Spring Break Vacations. Snow Sport University® teaches the kids all the right moves and there are full day programs for on-slope or off-slope as well. Smuggler’s Notch has been rated #1 for Family Programs by Ski Reader Magazine.
Our country’s heritage is calling – how about the museums and memorials (most of them free!) of Washington DC to create a vacation that is fun and educational? Take some notes from the 100 Free (and Almost Free) Things to Do in Washington DC to plan an historical tour. Make time for a few of the 19 Smithsonian Museums – they are packed full of the most interesting items to light up imaginations!
International destinations can be an amazing adventure for the family – London, Paris, Barcelona and there may be deals to be found:
“Many airlines have sales in the market for Europe. Going in the back end of March, you’ll get longer days, nicer weather, smaller crowds and cheaper fares,” said Travelzoo editor Andrew Young, who suggests using a site like www.fly.com to search multiple sites at once for the best fares.
“Wait a few months and fares will go up $300 to $500,” he warns.
Once you have chosen a destination, it is time to prep for the big trip!
