Spring Break is just around the corner! That means warmer weather, some much-needed time off, and the perfect opportunity to take your family on a little adventure! But if you want to make the vacation easier for you, your partner and your little ones — you should start planning now (if you haven’t already!).
At Doona, we know all about the lives and lifestyles of today’s modern parents, and we know that you’re busier than ever. That’s why we’ve hand-picked our list for simple, accessible and affordable family Spring Break vacations that everyone in the family will enjoy. Ready to start exploring? Here we go!
Seashells by the seashore
The beach offers plenty of fun-in-the-sun activities for people of all ages. From boogie-boarding to body-surfing, building sand castles to just relaxing in the shade, there’s something for everyone at the beach. And the best part of a coastal vacation is that any kind of beach will do — whether you rent a home, find a great camping site, or a nice hotel — being near the water provides hours of entertainment for all.
For families with older kids, theme parks are usually a big hit. You can sit back and watch while they run from ride to ride, or walk around with the little ones enjoying the atmosphere and other entertainment. Depending on your kids’ interests, there are different theme parks to pick from: you could explore one of the Disney parks, unleash your adrenaline at a Six Flags, or simply meander through one of the smaller amusement parks across the county.
If you want to just sit back, relax and unwind — well then, an all-inclusive resort might be perfect for you. There are so many activities, playgrounds, pools and other entertainment on site that you don’t need to stress about keeping your little ones entertained. With other families around, your kids might even make some friends on the holiday too! And that means that you get some stress-free time to sit back and enjoy, hopefully with a fruity cocktail in hand.
For the more adventurous of families, roughing it out in the woods is a great way for your family to connect with nature while spending quality time with each other. It is also a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of your regular routine. Think hiking, fishing, river rafting, swimming in a lake, horseback riding, mountain biking, ziplining and more! And at night, the exciting sounds of wildlife and a bomb fire will keep any kid entertained and ready for the next day’s adventure. Don’t forget to bring marshmallows, chocolate and biscuits for s'mores by the fire too!
For a more metropolitan adventure, why not travel to a fun big city? Any major city offers a multitude of fun and cultural activities for kids, teens and adults. You could taste new and exciting cuisines, explore the city’s bustling center, get in some shopping time, check out an interesting museum, or see a musical production. Each big city has something different to offer, whether it is different culture or iconic landmarks, so do some research and pick your city!
