Plan Now For Spring Trips (Yes, There’s Still Time)

Just a thought for you busy parents out there….now’s the time to nail down a family trip during your kid’s Spring Break or the April Easter weekend (Passover is April 13 this year, Good Friday the 14th, Easter Sunday the 16th, and Easter Monday is 17 April for those who might have the day off.)

Most of us find it a bit overwhelming to plan some big multi-week summer extravaganza, but a short getaway over a long spring weekend is just right.  If you’re thinking of Spring Break, consider taking only a few days to travel if you don’t want to deal with schlepping everyone somewhere for the entire week.

If you’re thinking about a beach destination, confirm when the collegiate partyers are going there, so your family doesn’t have to deal with Girls Gone Wild or guys doing Jello shots. 

Draw a 2-3 hour travel time around your hometown, pick a place you’ve wanted to check out but couldn’t do it in a day, and take a….Road Trip!
