It may be cold where you are, but spring break is just around the corner! This one-week respite from school is a godsend for busy children and college students, creating a perfect opportunity to escape the chilly weather and head for sunshine. This year, consider these lively destinations, plus convenient resorts to host your stay!
As the top vacation destination in the U.S., it shouldn’t be surprising that Orlando is an excellent stop for your spring break retreat. The city is anchored by theme parks, ranging from Cinderella’s Castle at Walt Disney World to the spectacular Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando, where you can sip butterbeer and explore Diagon Alley.
Beyond the theme parks, Orlando is home to some of the country’s best outlet shopping, with fire-sale prices on clothing, home furnishings, and more. You should also experience International Drive, a bustling strip of shops, restaurants, arcades, and museums that offers an activity for everyone. And if you’re in town at the right time, you might even be able to see the Orlando Magic basketball team play at the Amway Center!
Escape the bustle of the city and stay halfway between Orlando and Daytona Beach at Orange City RV Resort. A crystal-clear swimming pool is surrounded by palm trees and landscaping, complete with a nearby spa and dedicated kiddie pool. The gorgeous clubhouse hosts plenty of activities and pets have room to run at the grassy dog park.
San Antonio, Texas
Saddle up and head to the Southwest! San Antonio is one of Texas’ brightest cities and features fantastic attractions for every age. Visit Six Flags Fiesta Texas, where you’ll feel the rush of adrenaline as you fly at high speeds on coasters like Batman: The Ride before cooling down on milder options like the classic Ferris wheel.
SeaWorld San Antonio offers a rush on its array of water rides, and the entire family can gather to watch spectacular shows and performances. Downtown San Antonio is home to the famous River Walk, where water taxis travel through canals lined with shops and restaurants on an extensive pedestrian mall walk. Or step back in time with a visit to The Alamo, the historical garrison known world-wide for its legendary battle.
Settled right next to SeaWorld, Blazing Star RV Resort is packed with creature comforts. Kids will rejoice when they witness the full arcade and game room, including air hockey, ping pong, and more. Outside, a playground awaits, under the shade of stately trees. Lush landscaping surrounds the heated pool and kiddie pool, and our on-site convenience store is stocked with all the essentials you need. Planned activities are always in session and peak season brings in free shuttle service to SeaWorld. Start planning your stay today!
Palm Springs, California
Head to the West Coast and soak up the sun in the desert oasis of Palm Springs. Once a popular haunt of the stars from Hollywood’s Golden Age, Palm Springs is now home to a myriad of unique shops and activities, all nestled within view of the San Jacinto Mountains. To experience the vista for yourself, hop aboard the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, where you’ll travel along the cliffs of Chino Canyon in a rotating tram car. At the top, you’ll find the stunning Mt. San Jacinto State Park, which boasts two restaurants, a museum, observation decks with breathtaking views, and over 50 miles of hiking trails.
Aviation buffs will want to visit the award-winning Palm Springs Air Museum, which features the fighters and bombers of World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. Down in the Coachella Valley Preserve, visitors can discover over 20,000 acres of desert wilderness replete with oases and wildlife. Work together as a team at the Escape Room Palm Springs, or enjoy a stroll down Palm Canyon Drive, the famous palm-lined boulevard that’s packed with boutique shops, delightful restaurants, and an expansive flea market filled with deals.
Stay 30 minutes southeast of Palm Springs in the neighboring city of Indio, where you’ll find California comfort at Indian Wells RV Resort. Wake up to an awe-inspiring view of the Santa Rosa Mountains before heading for a refreshing dip in one of the three sparkling swimming pools. Miniature golf and ping pong ensure plenty of fun, while convenient bathhouses and laundry facilities ensure that the necessities are never out of reach.
