My Top 3 Family Spring Break Vacations

Spring Break is a great opportunity to do something special with your family.  With the kiddos out of school and many looking for a break from the cold weather, this is considered peak season for most hot spots causing prices to trend upward.  So planning early is a must.  Spring break can go from Mild to Wild, making the assistance of a travel agent very helpful in ensuring that you get the spring break experience you desire.  Here are my picks for the top 3 family spring break vacations.
1.       Disney World- While this is a busy time to visit, there is nowhere more family oriented than the Happiest Place on Earth.  You are all but guaranteed to not see any drunken young people stumbling through the streets.  Disney World in Florida boasts 4 theme parks and 2 water parks with additional activities such as dining with your favorite Disney character, dressing up like a princess and more.  Prices for a family of 4 can be as reasonable as $649 per person for air, 4 nights stay at a Disney World hotel, transfers and park tickets.  They also offer military discounts.
2.       Cruise- Looking for good food, 24 hour fun, and a worry free vacations?  Then cruising is definitely something to explore…and this option is just a short drive south, so you save on the airfare.  Many cruisers enjoy luxury hotel amenities such as turn down service, mints on their pillows, as well as the ability to see multiple destinations in just 1 vacation.  Cruise ships out of Galveston offer an array of activities ranging from children’s programs to late night adult comedy shows catering to guests of all ages.  From Galveston and Houston, you have the options of cruising with Carnival, Norwegian, Princess or Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, and no passport is required.  With a 5 day cruise during spring break starting as low as $520 per person for a family of 4 including accommodations, entertainment on the ship, food, some drinks and more, this vacation is very affordable and fun.
3.       Cozumel- Known for its great scuba diving, Cozumel is a more family oriented area of Mexico.  The El Cozumeleno is one of many resorts that offers the white sandy beaches, crystal blue waters, all inclusive amenities and even has miniature golf for the kids.  In addition, this resort like several others includes non-motorized water sports, so you can walk out into the ocean and snorkel right there at your hotel.  While keeping the spring breakers at bay might be daunting and maybe even impossible, it is far from the streets of Cancun.  The charming town has a great atmosphere and offers an array of restaurants and shops with local flare.  During this time frame you can get a package for 5 days for as low as $799 per person for a family of 4 with air, hotel, transfers, meals, drinks and tips.
There are so many vacation options out there.  Talk to your travel agent about what you are looking for, and let us give you some options for the perfect Spring Break get away.
