What better way to spend time with the family than during spring break? Take a few days (or the whole week) and make time for yourselves having fun with the ones you love. Here are 5 fun and family-friendly spring break destination ideas:

Go Camping

Escape the stresses of city life and spend some time enjoying the great outdoors. Del Valle Regional Park has a plethora of fun things to do. Right on the edge of a 5-mile long lake you will enjoy fun water activities, including two lifeguard safe beaches for swimming. Boat rentals (5 different types of boats included) are available to take the family out on the water. Plus, the area is surrounded by 4,316 acres of land for hiking and exploring (horseback riding opportunities are also available). Enjoy nature with the ones you love.

Rancho de los Caballeros

Stay at the Rancho de los Caballeros

For the ideal dude ranch experience stay at the ranch that offers the best family services. With fun activities like horseback riding and golf for the whole family and a spa for the adults, everyone is sure to have a good time here. They also offer a kid’s program and activities so you and your spouse can spend time at the spa getting massages (and even a babysitting service for little ones too small for the hiking and games).

Disneyland

Keep it Simple, Go to Disneyland

Depending on the amount of time you want to spend enjoying Disneyland, there are a ton of fun things to do. Simply enjoy a day at the park with all of the rides and Disney-themed attractions (don’t forget to take a spin in the tea cups) or spend the day at the California Adventure Park where you will find even more Disney-themed attractions. Don’t forget to stop in at the Downtown Disney District for great dining and shopping options (including a Lego store, a Rainforest Café, and even a “build your own race car” store). Enjoy spending time together doing something the kids are sure to enjoy.
