Have a family friendly spring break in mind, but don’t know how to keep little eyes from experiencing the craziness that sometimes accompanies a spring break vacation? It can be done—and in St. Augustine! With some practical tips and planning ahead, you can easily have the vacation of a lifetime that everyone in your family will enjoy.
Ready to map out an exciting family vacation? Here are a few tips.
Be a local. Stick to the places the locals love like the beachfront Farmer’s and Crafts Market on St. Johns Ocean County Pier. Everyone in the family will find something they’ll want to take home. From the usual souvenirs like hard-to-find shells to unique handcrafted décor, this is just one example of a great local’s hangout.
Visit family-friendly attractions. Put Adventure Landing and Marineland on your Florida vacation itinerary. Not only are these attractions designed with everyone in mind, but some offer discounts for kids under certain ages.
Get historical. While the crowds loll on the beach take your family to see the many historic sites in St. Augustine like Colonial Quarter, a living history museum and local landmark, the St. Augustine lighthouse. Also, located in the historic district, the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum will entertain even the most discriminating teens and kids.
Get moving! Whether it’s land, sea or air, get moving on your Florida spring break vacation. Take a thrilling ride on a fast-moving schooner or practice your pirate face for a tour with Black Raven Adventures. Ripley’s Sightseeing Trains and scenic boat cruises are also sensational venues for family tours.
Dive in! Make sure your beach house or condo has a pool where you all can have fun in the sun. Book some regular pool time so you can unwind after touring the city.
