Spring Break Family Travel

March 24, 2015: Spring Break Family Travel

I’m often asked about my best tips for Spring Break family travel, so today I’m sharing my top three with you!

When it comes to spring break travel, you first of all want to avoid flying if at all possible.
It’s expensive and can add up to a lot of delays and hassle.

Second of all, book backwards. What I mean by that is to find out what it is you absolutely want to visit – maybe it’s a theme park or specific tourist destination, then ask that organization if they partner with any hotels for an extra discount.

Finally, if you’re going to stay within your home state for spring break, mention that you’re a local. You’d be surprised just how many restaurants and even museums who offer discounts for people who are local or live within that region.

Follow these three tips and you’re sure to save a lot on this year’s spring break!
