Top 5 Undiscovered Spring Break Destinations 2019January 30, 2019 • By THIRDHOME
Destinations like Cancun, Miami and Puerto Vallarta usually rear their heads when Spring Break conversations begin around the dinner table. While there’s nothing wrong with these destinations, March is also an amazing time to visit other less obvious choices with the family. Don’t let your upcoming Spring Break fall prey to a crowded beach, visit one of these destinations instead.
Check out our top 5 picks for Undiscovered Spring Break Destinations for 2019
Lake Tahoe, California
For a unique combination of mountain adventure and shoreside barbecues, consider visiting Lake Tahoe this Spring Break. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to ski in nothing but a swimsuit, make your way up to Northstar or Squaw Valley for a sun-soaked slalom. After a day of skiing, relax by Emerald Bay’s gorgeous water or go shopping in South Lake Tahoe. Snowshoe/hiking trails, delicious local food, concerts, and breweries are also plentiful in the surrounding area. For ski/snowboarders, this Spring Break destination is a must.
Looking for a tropical beachfront Spring Break without the deafening crowds found at other destinations? Consider booking a property on Brazil’s expansive coast. The coastal states of Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Parana and Santa Catarina all feature miles upon miles of unspoiled beach. Between Rio and Florianópolis you’ll find plenty of beachfront properties, including some residences surrounding the famous Balneario Camburiu Bay. For beach fun and cultural exploration, a coastal Brazilian retreat might be just what the doctor ordered.
Park City, Utah
Another destination for ski lovers, Park City is a multi-faceted destination with lots of family-friendly fun to offer. Besides skiing and snowboarding, Park City, in Spring, features a Free Après Ski Concert Series, the Park City Museum, a wide variety of restaurants, distilleries, fly-fishing, hot-air balloon rides, and various hiking trails. Outdoor activities, great food, and relaxation all await you and your family this Spring Break.
The perfect coastal family destination on the outskirts of San Diego, Carlsbad offers many of the main staples of a beachfront Spring Break without the crowds or rowdiness. Small children will have plenty to do besides playing on the beach. Take the kids to Legoland California, the San Diego Zoo or the Museum of Making Music for fun and educational experiences. Disneyland is also just a short drive up to Anaheim. Book a Carlsbad Spring Break stay for a kid-friendly vacation with plenty of sun and lots of fun.
San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina
Your most unique option this Spring Break is Argentina’s Patagonia mountain range. San Carlos de Bariloche, a mountain town surrounding a large glacial lake, is one of the most beautiful hidden gems of the Andes. With Swiss and German architecture, Bariloche feels more like a misplaced Bavarian village than an Andean town. Enjoy swimming, mountain biking, kayaking and Bariloche’s Swiss-style chocolate stores during your mountain stay.
