Skip the expensive hotels and meals by taking your RV. Surf the net, pick the perfect place for your family and then pack up the camper! Spring Break is right around the corner – give your family a vacation to remember by taking them on a Great American Road Trip! Here are a few ideas for family friendly Spring Break Vacation Spots.
Walt Disney World or Disneyland
Do the Disney Parks cheap! Or at least cheaper! With campgrounds close by, take the kids to one of the happiest places on earth without breaking the bank. Walt Disney World Resort has a Disney inspired campground called Fort Wilderness Resort. Even though Disneyland doesn’t have their own themed campground, there are many campgrounds nearby. Meet Mickey, get your picture taken on Splash Mountain and become a princess at either Cinderella’s or Sleeping Beauty’s castle.
New Orleans, LA
Not only does Mardi Gras happen in March, but New Orleans is a great place for a family vacation. Experience Mardi Gras’ parades, jazz music, elaborate costumes and amazing food (there are parade routes that are family friendly and less adult rated). Or explore Bourbon Street and the French Quarter. You could also take a riverboat ride down the famous Mississippi River. There are also great city tours to take advantage of.

Washington Monument in Washington D.C.
With Washington D.C. being our Nation’s Capital, there are many things to see and do with your family. Not only is there great history and national treasures to see at the Smithsonian Museum, but there are other great museums for families. The International Spy Museum is a big hit for families. You can also take a tour of the city by jumping on a duck tour or save money by printing out the Washington DC East Mall Walking Guide and Tour for free. There is also a Cherry Blossom Festival at the end of March. Oh, and don’t forget to ring the bell at the White House!
San Diego, CA
With Seaworld, LEGOLAND, San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park (formally known as the San Diego Wild Animal Park), this is a great place to take your family to with many attractions to see.
