Castle in Disney World, one of the best spring break destinations for families

Walt Disney World

With plenty of exciting rides, shows, and things to explore, Walt Disney World Resort makes an excellent Spring Break option. The balmy Florida weather adds to the fun and gives northerners a chance to warm up in the beautiful sunshine. 

One of the best things about Disney World is that you can camp on property at the Fort Wilderness Resort. That said, due to the campground’s popularity, you’ll want to make reservations early.

Death Valley National Park, California

Spring is the perfect time to visit a California desert park like Death Valley National Park. The weather is pleasant and hasn’t reached the blistering heat of summer. On top of that, the desert flowers are blooming and beautiful (if you haven’t seen a cactus in bloom, it’s quite a sight). 

Stretch your legs hiking one of the many amazing trails in Death Valley and admire the colorful rocks and fanciful formations. If you run out of things to do, consider tacking on a few days at the equally amazing Joshua Tree National Park

San Diego, California

There’s a lot to see and do in San Diego! In fact, we think it’s pretty much perfect when it comes to spring break destinations for families. 

Spend a day at the beach, browse the shops in the Gaslamp Quarter, or head to Sea World or the renowned San Diego Zoo to see the animals. San Diego’s year-round mild weather means you’re sure to have some great days to spend outdoors in this coastal city.

Bahia Honda State Park, Florida

You can’t go wrong camping at any of the state parks in the Florida Keys. That said, Bahia Honda State Park is our top pick. 

At your home base in Bahia Honda, you can go snorkeling, swimming, hiking, boating and bird-watching. You’ll also want to keep an eye out for large rays, tropical fish, crabs, sea turtles, and dolphins. This park is the darkest location for stargazing in the Florida Keys, so be sure to look up at the night sky and attend any stargazing programs that might be available. 

Also note that you’ll be near three national parks – Biscayne National Park, Everglades National Park and Dry Tortugas National Park. All are worth seeing!

Grand Isle, Louisiana

Located on a gorgeous barrier island, Grand Isle is about one hundred miles south of New Orleans, along the Gulf. It’s a warm springtime destination and is an ideal place for ocean-lovers. 

Visit Grand Isle State Park, go deep-sea fishing, and look for local birds. You can also surround yourself with thousands of butterflies at the Butterfly Dome, or learn about area history at Fort Livingston. Lastly, you’ll want to make sure to have some fresh seafood plucked straight from the water.

Bright white sand dunes in White Sands, one of the best spring break destinations for families

White Sands National Park, New Mexico

White Sands National Park is home to the largest field of gypsum sand dunes in the world, and is one of the best spring break destinations for families. 

Spring is the perfect time to visit White Sands because the weather is excellent. The sand is warm on bare feet, but not too hot to bear. Take off your shoes, sink your toes in, and sled, tumble and jump down the dunes to your heart’s delight. For something a little different, you might also try a horseback ride at the park.

Isla Blanca State Park on South Padre Island is about as far south as you can get in Texas before hitting the border of Mexico. This means the weather is nice and sunny, making it one of the better spring break destinations for families. 

Here you can spend a day on the sandy beach, stroll along the walking trail, or do some surf fishing. The park also has a boat ramp, and plenty of concessions and beach rentals.
