As February comes to a close, it’s time to think about spring break plans.
When it comes to planning trips, people usually want to go somewhere warm and relaxing. Where to take the family, though? Well we’ve come up with a “Top Five” list of some places that we’ve either been to or where we’d love to go to.
Note: These are in no particular order
Disney World, Epcot, Universal Orlando, and Seaworld are all wonderful family vacation destinations. Most parks offer specials that include dining and lodging year-round but during this time of year, you’re likely to find even more. If you belong to Costco, their travel department has deals that include airfare, rental car, tickets to parks, and more.
Not only do they have 60 miles of beach, but Myrtle offers one of the best boardwalks in the country according to National Geographic. With lots of activities for children and adults, this destination is prime for beach lovers.
3. Washington, D.C.
Not interested in the beach? Are you from the Metro area and don’t feel like travelling? What better way to spend your spring break than by taking in the sites in our nation’s capital? Visit museums or the national zoo. Take in the Cherry Blossom Festival. There’s also plenty of shopping. You really can’t go wrong.
4. New York, NY
Another “non-beach” option is visiting NYC. There is absolutely no shortage of things to do. Sight seeing, shopping, Broadway, and fine dining are all draws to The Big Apple. Again, if you’re from the Metro area, DC 2 NY offers bus trips to New York for around $30.
5. Boston, MA
While Boston may not be the first place you’d think of when you’re trying to come up with a family vacation, it’s one of our nation’s oldest cities and is full of things to do. Are you a sports fan? Even during the off-season, you can still take a tour of the Boston Sports Trail and visit landmarks all over the city. There’s also museums, such as the children’s museum, walks and tours, and fine dining.
