February Getaway Ideas

By February 12, 2013

Follow me on:

February has a number of holidays: Chinese New Year in 2013 falls on February 10th but celebrations extend for a couple of weeks; Mardi Gras is Tuesday, February 12th; President's Day is Monday, February 18th, and lots of schools take a week-long break; several Canadian provinces have a "Family Day" holiday Monday in February (and in most cases this is the same weekend as President's Day.)

Check out February Getaway Ideas, including family-friendly Mardi Gras celebrations and Valentines Day getaways for families. (Yes, these experiences do exist.) In addition of course to all-inclusive resorts, ski trips, and other February ideas.

February is also Black History Month in the US and Canada; click for some great places to visit, that honor African-American history. Depending on ages and interests, families might focus on music history (like visiting Beale Street, right, the birthplace of the blues), or on museums and destinations that highlight civil rights history.
