A few of our favorite family vacation spots (+ must-have styles to pack!)
What comes to mind when you hear the phrase “Spring Break”? Clubbing and cocktails? Maybe once upon a time. But that doesn’t mean that Spring Break is only for the college set! The idea that once you have children, your traveling days are over is outdated and simply untrue. There are plenty of fantastic vacation options that are safe and fun for the entire family — and we’re rounding up a few of our favorites for Spring Break! So pack your bags with sunscreen, snacks, and our Spring Break must-haves, and get ready for a family-friendly adventure.
Explore National Parks
There’s nothing like exploring the best the USA has to offer – our protected National Parks. Perfect for hiking, sightseeing, and disconnecting from the chaos. Our National Parks offer nature’s most iconic scenery and give your children a chance to explore the great outdoors, and discover history and culture. You can choose your own adventure by camping, renting an RV, or staying at a local hotel or Airbnb — depending on the type of experience you and your family prefer. Not sure which of the 63 parks is for you? Yosemite National Park, in California, Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee, and Zion National Park, in Utah top our list! If your timing is flexible, consider visiting during National Park Week, April 16, when entrance fees are waived!

Take a Cruise
Okay, before you skip this section, hear me out! I know that cruises have a bad rep — especially now that COVID-19 has gone and changed our lives. But, with vaccinations, testing, and strict CDC cleaning guidelines, cruising is back and better than ever! Cruising is the ultimate “something for everyone” vacation. From weekend getaways to two-week-long trips — it’s as much about the journey as it is the destination. You can pack your days with back-to-back activities on the ship or explore your current port. Rather relax? Spend your days poolside and enjoy movies on-deck at night! Plus, there’s the food. Dozens of buffet options or specialty restaurants will appease even the pickiest eater!
Plunge into the pool in this show-stopping Scout Crop Eco and complete the look with the matching Scene Brief Eco. Planning to lay out on the sundeck? Rock the rainbow with the bright and happy Camilla Top from Beach Riot – pair with Chole Bottoms to complete the look.
Fun in the Sun in Hawaii
We couldn’t talk about Spring Break vacations without including an island – and Hawaii is the ultimate island destination for the whole family. Whether you’re looking to relax like a beach bum or try snorkeling or a sunset surf, the islands of Hawaii have something for everyone. Not feeling the beach scene? The food and culture of Hawaii alone are amazing to experience. And, don’t forget about the epic hiking! We suggest a kid-friendly resort for a great place to stay and be the hub of your Spring Break trip.
We love a matching swim set for you and your littles! Have your boys rock Seaesta Surf’s Sea Abyss Boardshorts or a button-down shirt. Twin with the kids with Seaesta Surf’s wild Calico Crab print — available in a one-piece swimsuit, boardshorts, and button-down shirt.
No matter where you and the family decide to go for Spring Break, enjoy it! Having fun and making memories is what having a family is all about.
