Have you been counting down the days until spring? It’s finally here! This is one of our favorite times of year. The flowers start to bloom, the birds start chirping, and the bunnies start hopping. Nature just comes alive. We are ready for it. Are you? Go ahead and find those Bermuda shorts, sun dresses, and flip flops. It is time to start soaking up spring!
There are so many spring adventures you can do with your family. Here are a few of our favorite springtime family trips.
Epcot Flower & Garden Festival
We are planning a trip this spring to Japan to see the cherry blossoms. This is a trip across the world, but there are a lot of cities in America with spectacular flowers. One of our favorites is in the historic city of Savannah, Georgia. Over the springtime, you will see red, white, and pink Azalea flowers everywhere in squares, parks, and in home gardens. It is truly spectacular!
Another popular destination around blooming flowers is in Washington D.C. for the cherry blossoms. D.C. has more than 3,000 cherry blossom trees.
One of the best times to camp with your family is spring. The weather is cooler, so sleeping in a tent is more comfortable. Plus, you can enjoy all of the beauty of the nature as it transitions from winter to spring. Camping is also the perfect getaway with your whole family, including your four legged friends. Your dogs are just as excited to get out in springtime. We love bringing our dog on our camping adventures.
Camping is also an inexpensive adventure. Campsites are often free or a nominal cost. We also love that most camping spots do not have a lot of cell phone service. This means the kids leave the electronics in the car, so real family bonding can take place. Of course, I am partial to s’mores, too!
Our last big spring adventure is a road trip. Go ahead and pack up the kids and car for a road trip. This could be a road trip to visit grandma or a road trip to another state. Planning a road trip is an epic family adventure. Pull out that map and just pick a spot. We like to close our eyes and just point. Wherever my finger lands, that is where we are road tripping.
Spring is a time to renew, so why not spend time with your family? You can renew those family bonds and sibling friendships. What is your favorite spring adventure?
