1. Family Friendly Destinations

We know the stereotypical thoughts that occur when you think of Spring Break. We know a lot of people picture MTV, Drunk and disorderly college students, and that terrible Selena Gomez Movie. Well I am here to tell you that luckily, there is a lot more to Spring Break than the list above. Spring Break offers the perfect opportunity to get away from the crazy fast paced life that you have at work or school by taking the time to focus instead on rest and relaxation. For the family looking to avoid the large crowds and loud noises that are seen on tourist friendly beaches, this might be the best chance you have to try your first annual family cruise. With great rates for the entire family, Cruise lines are becoming more affordable and more family friendly than ever. Looking for a life experience your family will remember forever, get to the Grand Canyon in early Spring to beat the Summer time rush and get to see the Majestic Canyon before the summer months bring the high temperatures and flocks of tourists. Permits are required for overnight stay but the life experience make the cost worth every penny. Come see one of the nations most prized natural treasures first hand, or if you are feeling really adventurous, rent a donkey and go for a cliff side ride that you will stay in your mind forever. Just be sure you have high quality travel bags that are made for the rough and tumble travel that accompanies life outdoors, I recommend Eco-Friendly Kontiki Luggage due to its high degree of durability, Dependable Safari Styling, and National Geographic’s commitment to Adventure and Travel.
