Spring break is just around the corner for many kids. Most parents want to make their family’s spring break more memorable because they realize on some level that they only have a finite number of school vacations to spend with their kids. If you want to make this spring break memorable for your kids, here are some ideas for how to do it.
Travel Somewhere Warm
By the time spring break rolls around, it’s likely that you and your family are pretty tired of the cold. Traveling to someplace warm helps you to shake off cabin fever. What’s even better is that many of the warmest places, like New Mexico or Arizona, won’t have as many visitors because technically, spring break is still the off-season.
Travel Somewhere New
There is something kind of magical about being out on the open road, taking in each sight as it greets your eyes. While plane travel is in most ways faster, you don’t quite get the same effect as you do when you travel by car. Truly part of the magic of this type of travel is that it lets you see each new place is fantastic, up-close-and-personal detail. Just think about seeing each new rock and crevice in places, like Yosemite or Yellowstone, for the first time. To make the most of it, you’ll want a vehicle that will work well for this type of travel. Standard SUVs have great features that make them perfect for families who are traveling. They have enough room to store luggage and gear. They also come with plenty of legroom, so that everyone feels more comfortable during the long stretches of time on the road.
Travel Someplace Educational
While your trip should allow you and yours to blow off some steam, there’s no rule that says it can’t also be educational. Some of the best trips encourage kids to explore the world and their minds at the same time. Field trips to places, like a museum or national monument, give kids the chance to see and sometimes, to touch the exhibits. They can immerse themselves in the Jurassic period or see a modern exhibit, like the Hunger Games exhibit in Las Vegas. Because these topics are already of interest to kids, it won’t feel like a chore in the way that schoolwork sometimes can.
Planning a cool spring break trip for you and your kids allows you all to build memories together. After all, most families only get twelve spring breaks with their kids before the kids leave the nest. That’s why it’s so important to choose the right destinations and the right mode of travel. If you do, then your break will likely be smoother, allowing you to focus instead on the fun and not the problems you had to overcome.
