Ideas for things to do during Spring Break
With spring well and truly upon us, it definitely feels like time for the first real break of the year. Christmas and New Year are well passed and summer still a little way off, it’s time for a Spring Break! So what to do?
Just on the other side of the state is Orlando, home of Disney World, Sea World, the Epcot Centre, and numerous other attractions. Theme parks always make for an enchanted vacation when you have kids, and this area is one of the best, and the weather is almost always great. If you’re worried about crows then there are plenty of others to choose from that may be nearer.
Camping trips will always remain a favourite, especially for those who love the outside. The mountains in springtime provide spectacular views of trees coming in to bloom. For a child, there is nothing like waking up to the smell of bacon cooking on a camp stove. The biggest precaution to take is in bringing warm clothes, sleeping bags for cold weather, and being prepared for some cool mornings in general. Mother Nature is fickle in springtime. Lack of preparation can ruin one of these vacations, so beware.
Sometimes a good road trip is just what the family needs. There is more to see and experience in this great country than can ever be done in a lifetime. Road trips only cost the gas for the trip, food expenses, and a few tolls and admission prices. Motels are cheap on the Interstate. So go see “The Thing” in New Mexico, the World’s Largest Rocking Chair at the The Big Texan, and the World’s Largest Ball of Yarn. And take plenty of pictures.
If you don’t want to drive, take a train trip. Trains are a large part of our heritage, and there is no better way to get the feel of just how big a part of our history they are than to take Amtrak across the country. There are also miles historic railroad to tour on old railroad cars pulled by old engines that have been brought out of retirement. These historic rides can be found all over the country. Many of these rides are no more than an hour long, but getting there is half the fun.
These are just a few ideas for some good family fun either as a spring break or a little longer. The important thing is to plan your vacation to get the most out of your time off. Now, go have fun!
