Finally, the winter blues must go and it’s time to enjoy the sunshine. With the approach of spring, it’s the ideal time to bring the family together and organize a getaway so that everyone can enjoy the burgeoning flowers, pose for pictures in national parks, or put their toes in the sand. Then where?

There are many more spring break destinations the whole family will love, so forget about the typical hotspots like Miami and Cancun. Check out our top recommendations for spring break vacation this year, which were selected with family-friendly attractions like water parks, kid-friendly museums, and lovely beaches in mind. Prepare yourself to really enjoy spring break by making your travel arrangements, packing some snacks, and remembering your sunscreen.

1. California

Yosemite National Park in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and San Diego’s countless attractions further south make California a suitable halfway point for people of all ages.

If you’re eager for an adventure, take the hiking trails of Yosemite National Park. You’ll be able to observe the meadows burst with the first spring flowers and, if you’re lucky, get a few glimpses of wildlife emerging after a long winter’s nap.

Choose from a variety of day adventures in Southern California for a pleasant spring break location. Visit the San Diego Zoo at Balboa Park for educational fun, ride the rides at Belmont Park, or simply unwind at the beach while watching surfers catch a few waves.

2. Texas

Families can find a variety of spring break places in Texas, from the coastal South Padre Island to the old-world San Antonio.

The only tropical island in Texas, South Padre Island, offers a variety of attractions, including warm Gulf waters, natural preserves, and lighthouse excursions. With a visit to The Alamo or a day at the DoSeum children’s museum, San Antonio is the ideal location to smuggle in some education during your spring break vacation.

If you’re seeking for additional excitement, the Moody Gardens theme park, which has three pyramid-shaped buildings, contains attractions focused on the rainforest, the sea, and scientific discoveries, as well as Galveston’s historic boardwalk, which is glistening with amusements and rides.

3. Colorado

Want to squeeze in a quick ski trip? You are fortunate. With an average snowfall that lasts until early June or July, the Arapahoe Ski Basin has the longest snow season in the whole state. Expert skiers will love the high-altitude trip, while beginners and kids can also choose from a range of runs and activities.

A stunning time to visit Rocky Mountain National Park is in the spring. It’s the ideal time of year to hike the park’s 355 miles of hiking trails because there are less visitors and milder temperatures. Together, go on your next outdoor adventure from a comfortable cabin in the Rocky Mountains with lots of space.

4. South Carolina

A little sunshine and southern charm are the only things nicer than spring. Enjoy a picnic on the sand in Myrtle Beach or Hilton Head to welcome the nicer weather.

There are plenty of exciting things to do in Myrtle Beach. Enjoy family fun at the boardwalk, neighboring aquariums, water parks, and, if your little children are feeling courageous, Myrtle Beach’s Alligator Adventure. Delight in coastal activities and water sports of every type.

Spend a more tranquil holiday in Hilton Head, where you can explore the nature reserves on foot, visit The Sandbox Children’s Museum, and climb to the top of Harbour Town Lighthouse for panoramic views of the lovely beach.

5. Florida

Give in to your intense need for the beach. The palm tree paradise of Panama City Beach makes it feasible to surf, snorkel, and parasail. This 27-mile stretch of sugar-white sand and emerald Gulf waves ensures a memorable family getaway. Plan a day of water sports at St. Andrews State Park, including surfing instruction, paddle boarding, or snorkeling. The city’s Pier Park serves as both a retail paradise and a theme park.

Consider staying on Amelia Island for a more tranquil beach getaway. You’ll easily adapt to the natural environment and tide sounds in the absence of tourists and commercialism. Make sandcastles on the beach with the family, go on a guided horseback ride along the surf, or explore the adjacent Egans Creek Greenway in search of birds and other coastal species. Spend time together while enjoying a soft serve, strolling the pier, and staying beachfront.

6. Tennessee

Enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning while sitting on the porch and admiring the Smoky Mountain mist moving through the trees. Families may have an interesting spring break in Tennessee, where there is something to do around every corner. You can take your young explorers zip-lining, horseback riding, or to the Dollywood theme park for the day.

Don your cowboy hat and boots and head to Nashville for some dancing, a visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame, and a scrumptious barbecue meal at Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint.

Along the Georgia border, Chattanooga is home to numerous hiking trails, delicious ice cream parlors, and Lookout Mountain’s renowned Seven States viewpoint.

7. Costa Rica

 Look no further than Costa Rica for a unique family holiday overseas. The best time to travel is in early March, before the nation’s rainy season starts in May. Choose your journey each day from among volcanoes, hot springs, cloud forests, and rainforests. Children will enjoy spotting the area’s monkeys, butterflies, and more than 850 different species of birds. After a day of excitement in Jacó or Tamarindo, have a taste of the tropics by white water rafting, snorkeling, cave tubing, or enjoying delectable fresh fruit smoothies.
