Why Southern Utah is Your Family-Friendly Spring Break Destination
If you’re looking for a spring break experience that’s fun and family-friendly, it’s time to set your sights on Southern Utah. As one of the country’s top destinations for outdoor adventure, the area is full of attractions and activities for guests of all ages and abilities. Add in our spectacular spring weather and amazing accommodations, and you’ve got all the ingredients for your best spring break yet!
Thanks to our varied elevations, Spring in Southern Utah means you can ski and swim in a single day (so prepare to pack for every possibility.) Snow is still heavy on the mountains, allowing for plenty of wonderful winter fun, while our lower landscapes are awash in vibrant wildflowers and curious wildlife. Mornings are cool while afternoons are balmy, so look to bring layers and enjoy our wonderful spring weather.
We get it – you’re here to take a break, not train your brain! But hear us out. We’re talking about amazing activities and attractions, not boring school assignments. Exploring our natural parks is educational in itself, and kid-friendly programs like Bryce Canyon’s Junior Rangers offer in-depth knowledge of the landscape as well as a park ranger’s role and responsibilities (plus a sweet Junior Ranger badge.) If you prefer a more structured approach, places like the High Desert Museum offer engaging hands-on exhibits where you’ll learn all about Oregon’s history, culture, wildlife, and more. It’s like they never missed a day of school!
Memorable Family Fun
Let’s be real – how many memories can you make sunbathing on the beach? Thanks to Southern Utah’s abundance of family-friendly fun, your spring break trip will be truly unforgettable. You can backpack through a national park, drop a line in Panguitch Lake, or even shred the slopes at Brian Head Resort (the snow is still spectacular in spring). No matter what you choose to fill your days, you can bet it will be a spring break to brag about!
Activities for All Ages
Traveling with teens and toddlers? No problem! Unlike less dynamic destinations, Southern Utah has activities to delight adventurers of all ages. Brian Head Resort is one great example – while Ski School keeps the older kids engaged, smaller skiers will love sliding in a snow tube or skiing the bunny slopes. You can also plan to play in the parks, where guided ATV and horseback tours are both exciting and easy to do (even if you have tiny feet.)
You’ll need a place to stay as you play, and Family Time Vacation Rentals can help you find a property that pleases every person in your family. From a Ski-In/Ski-Out Condo packed with premium amenities to a large and luxurious cabin that boasts a private playground, we can help find a spectacular family rental for your best spring break ever.
