    Puerto Rico

prNot only is Puerto Rico affordable, it is also entertaining! Puerto Rico’s great beaches and warm weather makes it an awesome spring vacation spot. The Luquillo Beach is one of the best family beaches on Puerto Rico. With its clear blue waters and white beach sand, families will surely enjoy it here. As a bonus, the food is tasty and spicy, and the clubs are amazing.

Does this sound like a typical romantic movie?  Amsterdam is known for these famous canals! You can walk through the canal streets or rent a boat and sail through the canal rings yourself. These canal rings are good for those who are looking for a romantic spring break.

amIn addition, if you are interested in history, Amsterdam has the Begijnhof Court that dates back to the middle ages, where the history and culture “wafts through the air.”

Grand Canyon

gdGrand Canyon is a perfect spring vacation location if your family is fond of  the outdoors. There are several things to do while  at the Grand Canyon. You might want to hike the Rim Trail, ride a mule, visit “The Trail of Time” (a geology exhibition), rent a bike,  take bike tour or explore on your own! However, avoid early spring for visiting this destination! Grand Canyon experiences a series of changing weather. One minute, it’s sunny spring weather, and the next day it is cold.  Be sure that if you do go to the Grand Canyon, it’s at late spring where you will have fantastic weather.

Miami Beach
