Spring break is a time to relax with your family. It’s a time to reconnect with your loved ones, spending quality time with each other. One of the best (and most fun) ways to do this is to take a family trip. When you take a family trip over spring break, you’re guaranteed to have fun! Here are a few fun family trips you should consider taking this spring break. For years, I taught in a different district than where my children attended school and we didn't have the same Spring Break. My husband and I used this to our advantage to take a trip by ourselves but I always wished the kids and I had the same Spring Break so we could go on an adventure. The last two years, they have done local mission trips which was awesome. If you are looking for a fun getaway, here are my favorites (plus one wish list place too).
Disney World is a magical place to visit, which is why this destination should be on the top of your list! There’s something for everyone in the family when you visit Disney World, from the Animal Kingdom to Epcot! If you do decide to visit Disney World, you should consider purchasing the fast pass so that you and your family can make the most of your time there. I've been eight times and even as an adult, it is my favorite place to visit. Check out my Disney tab in our travel section for more tips!
If you want to have some fun this spring break, you should consider visiting Legoland. This is the perfect destination if one of your kids (or yourself) love Legos. When planning your Legoland trip, you have a few options. If you want to go all out, you can get tickets for the Legoland Theme Park. If you’d like to stay closer to home, you can look for a Legoland Discover Center near you. Regardless of what you decide to do, your family will quickly fall in love with all things Legoland. I took my youngest son and nephew to Legoland in CA four years ago. My son is on the spectrum and is a genius when it comes to legos. I hope he works for them one day. We had the BEST time!
Great Wolf Lodge
You’ve dealt with the snow and cold all winter, so for your spring break trip, it’s time to have some water fun. Great Wolf Lodge is the perfect place for this. Usually, you have to travel south to for some fun in the water, but with Great Wolf Lodge, you can enjoy water slides, pools, and the lazy river in any climate. You can usually find a Great Wolf Lodge close by, so you’ll know you’ll have a ton of fun without having to travel far away. We have only been to the Dallas, TX location but my kids LOVED it. There is more than just swimming too. They also run specials all the time.
Take A Cruise
Do you want the ultimate getaway this spring break? Take your family on a cruise! There are many family-friendly cruise ships out there, giving you and your kids plenty of time to relax and have fun. You’ll also enjoy the warmer weather as you cruise around tropical waters. My kids favorite part of a cruise: unlimited room service! They loved the kid activities, swimming and the food. This picture is from our excursion in Cozumel. My sister and I and our husbands were ready to get back on the ship. My mom offered to take the kids to walk around to look in the stores and would be not far behind us. We waited with our dad on their balcony and you could imagine our reaction when our mom walks up with our six children and they ALL have a guitar. My sister and I looked at each other and mumbled, “What the hell?” under our breath. Ha! Yup, toting them all home and through customs was awesome (insert eye roll). This picture makes me laugh every time I see it. Great memory.
Rent a Cabin
Does your family love the outdoors? This spring break you should experience the great outdoors by renting a cabin. This is on our bucket list. We would love to rent one of these cabins in Tennessee. There’s so much to do, from hiking up and down mountainous peaks to having fun in Gatlinburg. You’ll quickly fill up your entire week with fun activities the whole family will enjoy. Maybe this is where we will head this year!
What are your plans this spring break? I’d love to hear where you plan to travel!
