Many families in the Northeast have their winter break coming up in February. Are you planning a winter break family vacation? If you haven’t, here some winter school vacation travel ideas, including warm weather destinations and cold weather destinations.
Please be aware of the Zika Virus guidelines from the CDC before traveling. We visited some of these locations at no cost for purposes of review, but all opinions are my own.
Winter School Vacation Travel Ideas for February Vacation
My family has loved visited Smugglers’ Notch in the summer, and if you’re a family of skiers (or want to be), this is definitely a great place to spend your February school vacation week. Accommodations are in suites, so you’ll have plenty of room, and there are kids programs as well as a nursery.
White Mountains, New Hampshire
I just can’t get enough of the White Mountains, and in the winter, it’s a full winter wonderland. Visit Attitash Resort in Bartlett or Loon Mountain in Lincoln for loads of family ski fun. Don’t miss a trip to the Settlers Green Outlet Village to get some great deals on name-brand products (no tax in NH)!
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Perhaps you are looking to get away from the cold weather? If so, San Juan Puerto Rico may be perfect for you. US residents don’t need a passport, and there are lots of family-friendly hotel options, including the El Conquistador Resort, where we stayed last year. Getting through the airport is so easy with no need to go through passport control or immigration.
US Virgin Islands
I visited the US Virgin Islands on a family cruise several years ago, and loved it. Again, passports aren’t needed for US residents, making it an easier trip than other parts of the Caribbean.
San Diego, California
San Diego is one of my favorite places on Earth, and there’s plenty of things for kids to do. From Legoland to the San Diego Zoo, the kids will have a great time. The weather is always mild in San Diego, so it’s a great escape from the cold.
Do your kids get a February vacation? Where will you be headed.
