I usually start planning spring break for the next year after getting back from the previous year's trip. We usually have an idea of where we want to go the next year too, but not this year. Any thoughts suggestions for a trip for a family of three (mom / dad / 17 year old) for spring break 2014? Note: We are looking for a four to seven night trip and have a budget of about $5000 (not super huge, but big enough to open up some possibilities). We live in St. Louis, MO and would prefer somewhere we could fly to directly and would also prefer to pick one place to stay the entire time vs. traveling around. We aren't really big beach people, but a beach vaction is definately on the table. We'd just want there to be more to do than just beach. We enjoy the west and National Parks, but usually do trips like that in the summer when temperatures are at least in the 60s or 70s. (e.g. are doing Yellowstone, for example, August of 2013) This past spring break (2013) we went to Las Vegas for two nights to see a concert and then spent six nights in Sedona, AZ.
Note too, DH does not like amusement parks and super crowded places. DS had two have two knee surgeries this past year and walking is fine now (although major walking day in and out wouldn't be good) and hiking is out unfortunately.
The summer trip we have planned in 2014 has a little bigger budget than we usually do and will be a trip to Kauai, HI. We'll have 14 extended family coming on that one too.
We just don't have any great ideas for March 2014, though. I appreciate any and all suggestions.
