"Spring vacation" is time of year with great getaway choices as both snow and sun destinations are in season. Families with kids in school generally get an extended break in March or April. Typically this school break lasts ten days or more, and dates vary in different parts of the country. That's the reason you may find that blackout dates for discount fares to Florida extend for an entire month, mid-March to mid-April. On the plus side, not all families are crowding into Disney World during the exact same week.

Families with school-age kids might also get a four-day weekend at Easter in addition to ten days off during March. Alternatively, some schools take their spring vacation as a ten-day break around Easter weekend.

For many ideas about spring vacations, see twenty Spring Break Ideas. You'll find spring vacation suggestions in Florida, Washington DC, the Southeast US, California including Kids Fly Free to Disneyland, snow getaways, all inclusive resorts, a Nickelodeon getaway at an Arizona resort, ranch resorts in AZ and New Mexico, Vancouver BC with local ski mountains, Quebec City plus nearby skiing at Mont-Sainte-Anne... And for schools that take their spring vacation at Easter, suggestions include Hershey PA's springtime preview of Hersheypark attractions, and family-friendly music festivals in Louisiana during April.
