March and April are popular months for spring break trips. But many of us dread the thought of dragging our family to the same high-volume, high-traffic destinations. Fear not! We’re sharing a list of fresh new spring break adventures from TakingTheKids.com.
Adventures by Disney—on land and sea
Looking for a little magic on your spring break? Adventures by Disney offers Southern California land packages with Disney Cruise Line vacations setting sail from San Diego. Some highlights include a stay at Disneyland Resort plus a Southern California six-day tour with backstage tours; escorted tours of Walt Disney Studios and Archives, and Disney Imagineering in Burbank; as well as visiting Hollywood’s iconic locations.
Atlanta has a lot to offer families looking for spring break excitement. For example, the annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival, featuring arts and crafts, performers, midway rides and a “Backyard Bites & Brews” food fest. Of course, there are also the city’s national treasures such as Coca-Cola World, the CNN Center, Georgia Aquarium, Atlanta Botanical Garden and much more!
Baseball spring training
If your family loves baseball, a tour of small stadiums in Florida that host the Grapefruit League or Arizona’s Cactus League parks may be for you. You can even collect a few player autographs while there!
One of America’s top family resort destinations, Keystone Resort, is located in Summit County, Colorado—just 75 miles from Denver.
