Kid-Friendly Spring Break Vacations

Posted on 04-03-2017 | Ben Fernandes

While it’s been beautiful here in sunny Florida where Kids 'R' Kids is based, we know that much of the country has had a pretty long and chilly winter. Which is why we wanted to take a moment to talk about some of the great kid-friendly spring break vacations you might want to consider to dust off the winter blues, and get you ready for a great summer.

1. The Beach. We have to admit, we’re partial to Florida beaches, and especially those here on the Gulf Coast, but in reality, beaches of all types, on all coasts, are a great option for families. They give the kids plenty of room to run and burn off some of that built-up energy, and parents can enjoy soaking up some of that warm sunshine. And beach vacations can be inexpensive too — the beach itself is free to enjoy. So if you live near a coast, pack up the kids and go get some surf and sand time in. And if you don’t live near a coast, consider planning a visit to a state like Florida that has a wide range of options.

2. Parks. Even if you aren’t near a beach, nearly every town and city has a park available that you and your children can go and enjoy. For young kids, find a park with a great playground so they can run around and have fun with other children. If you have dogs, find a pet-friendly park so your four-legged children can get some spring break vacation in as well.

3. Camping. If you want a spring break vacation that will last for more than an afternoon, consider a camping trip. There are state parks and campgrounds all across the country, and most of them have a variety of activities such as kayaking, fishing or hiking trails. Kids get to learn more about the world around them, and won’t bother anyone when they want to run around and be as loud as they like.

4. Museums. If you’re like us, the spring weather is heating up so fast, it’s already feeling like summer. If that’s the case, consider looking into your local museums. Depending on your city, you might have a kid-centric museum that focuses on teaching kids about science, history and other topics in a hands-on manner.

5. Theme Parks. While they can get crowded this time of year, theme parks are always going to be a very kid-friendly option for families. Everything from the big names like Disney or SeaWorld, to your local water park, can make for a great afternoon of fun, or even an entire vacation planned around them. Theme parks are a wonderful way to build lasting memories your children will never forget.

6. Movie Nights. If your city has “picnic in the park” events, this is a great way to get out with the whole family to enjoy an evening together. But if there isn’t one near you, host your own! Vacations don’t have to mean leaving town. You can set up a backyard movie viewing and invite your friends and family over for a BBQ. You won’t even have to worry about remembering to pack everyone’s toothbrush!

These are just a few ideas for ways you and your family can enjoy the season. We would love to hear about some of your ideas for celebrating spring break — email us or leave a note in the comments!
