Spring break is a great time to get away with the family, visit one of America’s many attractions, and create happy memories that will last a lifetime. To make the trip even more memorable, stay at a nearby campground and RV park! Not only will it save you money on food and lodging, it’ll add an extra element of fun. Many campgrounds offer transportation to nearby attractions, so you can easily combine a visit to your activity of choice with a family-bonding adventure in the great outdoors.
Here are just a few ideas of places to stay and things to see. Try one for your next trip or come up with a family-fun combo of your own!
This RV park and campground has a shuttle that will take you directly to Walt Disney World. It is also just minutes away from Universal Studios, Sea World and other theme parks. Visit attractions in the day then come back to the campground at night to catch a dive-in movie at the pool or relax with family around the campfire. If you need a break from theme park lines, you can make your own family fun at the campground playing shuffleboard, watching a gator and tiger show, singing karaoke or listening to live music.
Looking for something more rustic? Pitch your tent, park your RV or stay in a wilderness cabin in this resort’s picturesque 750 acres of pine and cypress forest located in the middle of Walt Disney World Resort. A complimentary bus will take you to the attractions or you can spend your time instead horseback riding, fishing, canoeing on the lake, or going down the corkscrew water slide at the resort’s pool.
Just the name of this place sounds fun, but it’s only the beginning. This oceanfront resort has a daily schedule of family fun planned over Spring Break (April 14-20) from tye dying and 3-legged races to miniature golf contests and scavenger hunts by the pool. Not traveling on those dates? That’s okay. You and the fam can still float down their 510 foot lazy river, sunbathe by the ocean, or visit nearby entertainment like Hard Rock Theme Park, NASCAR Speed Park, or Ripley’s Aquarium.
Who says you have to head towards the sun and surf for Spring Break? Consider seeking out the sun and snow instead! This RV park --open year-round-- is close to several ski areas so you can hit the slopes in the day and stay toasty in your RV—or one of their affordable chalets—at night. The sun is so intense in Colorado, you’ll still come home with a tan! (Note: This site is only for RVs that are totally self-contained. No popup campers, tents, or truck campers are allowed.)
What better time to educate your kids (and yourself) about our nation’s history than when Washington D.C.’s 3,000 cherry blossoms are in bloom and festival activities are planned? Worried about traffic and parking? At Cherry Hill Park, the closest RV park and campground to Washington, D.C., a bus will pick you up at the campground and drop you off at the metro, which will take you into the city. Problem solved! Visit monuments, memorials, the capitol, the festival, and the zoo—all for free! Then return to the campground and relax away from the hustle and bustle.
