Destin, FL

Getaway from the city to the beach at this white sand beach town. The drive will take about 6 hours but it’s well worth it once you get there. There are many things to do with kids that you will want to stay longer than just a weekend. Spring break might be a tad cold for the beach time but don’t let that stop you from planning a weekend getaway to Destin. There are plenty of other activities for kids and the whole family to enjoy.

Helen, GA

For the shortest distance, you can getaway to the mountain and enjoy hiking in the park. Just skip over the cheesy part in town and you can enjoy a fun day out in the mountain and Unicoi State park. But I personally like the cheesy part in town. It is a fun thing to do to walk around this Bavarian inspired village and check out all the shops. Plan your spring break to Helen with this post to help with information on things to do, places to stay and yummy food to try.
