It’s easy to forget that a vacation should be fun for every member of the family, not just kids or teenagers. Besides, being over 18 doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy spring break too. When you plan your spring vacation this year, think about visiting one of the cities on Orbitz.com’s list of alternative spring break destinations that can appeal to both children and adults.

  1. Orlando, Fla.— Theme parks abound in Orlando, Fla. This city features Walt Disney World, Sea World, Universal’s Islands of Adventure, and Downtown Disney, among other theme parks that appeal to kids of all ages. 
  2. San Francisco — Take the entire family to San Francisco to see some the of the nation’s most outstanding land marks such as, Alcatraz or the Golden Gate Bridge. Additionally, you can go off the beaten path, and visit some of San Francisco’s more memorable sites such as the Haight Asbury district or Japan town.
  3. San Diego — The San Diego Zoo, the Maritime Museum of San Diego, and SeaWorld of San Diego are all great spots the entire family can enjoy. And right off the coast of San Francisco is the city of Coronado, which features one of the oldest and most beautiful resorts in America — Hotel del Coronado (which is rumored to be haunted).
  4. San Juan, Puerto Rico — Hmmm…What do in beautiful in San Juan, Puerto Rico? Well beside the obvious site-seeing trips, you and the family can visit the Culebra National Wildlife Reserve; here tourists can see outlying islands in addition to seabird colonies and turtle nesting sites.
  5. Puerto Vallarta, Mexico — Visit beautiful beaches, old cathedrals and great local towns, such as Yelapa, that will broaden your family’s horizon.
  6. Reno, Nev. — Reno not only has several places for adults to gamble but entertainment for the kids as well. Your children can visit Wild Island, which has outdoor waterslides, pools, miniature golf and go-cart rides. Great Basin is another great attraction in Reno that has a petting zoo, pony rides and an arboretum.
  7. Tampa, Fla. — Tampa has several theme parks (Busch Gardens, SeaWorld Orlando, and Discovery Cove to name a few); and you can take the family jet skiing or parasailing at any of Tampa’s beaches.
  8. Maui, Hawaii — Taking a trip to Maui may sound expensive, but thanks to vacation packages and discount airfares, it’s easier to get to Maui for spring vacation.  You and your family can learn to play golf, enjoy the scenery or watch for humpback whales in the on this majestic island.
