Spring break is our favorite time to get away with the family, an ideal time to travel affordably between the pricey winter holidays and crowded summer months. Before the crowds hit the beaches and mountains for summer vacation, spring break is a treasured time for getaways for most American families. Vacations between February and April also can be easier on your budget and easier to plan.
These days, you likely will find more families on spring break—often with grandparents in tow—than college kids.
We are joining our colleagues at Family Travel Forum to recommend getaways that are guaranteed to please, whether you’re planning a reunion of several generations, a wild time with a bunch of friends, or some “we” time with loved ones, we hope you’ll find this roundup of the top adventure, beach, resort, cruise, festival, city, historical and international short breaks a helpful starting point.
