Spring break is around the corner and some of us, including me, don’t have plans in place yet. It’s an interesting period for travel in North America as a beach holiday and a family ski vacation are both still possibilities. Meanwhile, airfares to Europe can be less than during the packed summer season making that international journey more affordable. You give up weather, but you also give up crowds (unless travel is right around Easter). Asia is a long way to go for a week-long vacation although for road warriors, the conditions in some countries like Vietnam are optimal in the spring.
How to choose?
Family travel experts from around the country engaged in a brainstorm for those lesser-known, often-overlooked spring break destinations that are more likely to have availability and value at this late date.

We have tried and tested spring break favorite we’ve written about on the Ciao Bambino Blog over the years including Washington DC with kids, a California family road trip, family surf camp in Costa Rica, and a family trip through the Florida Keys. Meanwhile, I learned that some of the best skiing all year long in places like Sun Valley, Idaho happen in late March and early April when there is sun and powder.
It’s definitely NOT too late to do something amazing. Happy planning!
