Spring break is around the corner and summer following (not that anyone is counting the days, right?) Here are some awesome places that I know friends and I have explored over the years. It’s often hard to please at this awkward age. Some look forward to spending any free time with family, and some just can’t run quicker out the door to be with friends! No matter what, getting that break time is SO needed. So regardless of where you decide to plan your next trip, think about the options and what you think each place offers. Many families might be on a budget or have a hard time taking days off work. So, take that opportunity to go to some local, fun places right in your own state or nearby, without it taking hours to get there. Sometimes even a brief, 3-4 day get away can be the perfect time off period to regroup and refresh – for everybody in the family!
