With Spring Break quickly on its way, I thought it might be fun to revisit a few suggestions we’ve made over the years during kid’s school breaks. While some were suggested for Fall Break, and others for spring, most can be applied to any time of the year! Here’s a roundup of our Top 5 Midwest Spring Break Ideas for 2020!
HOW WILL YOU SPEND SPRING BREAK?
Remember when we hopped in the car and drove to Cincinnati? Not only do they have the Newport Aquarium, but they have so many other awesome options!
Another on a whim trip we took was to Chicago. It’s super nice to be centrally located where some really cool cities aren’t more than 3-4 hour away! Chicago is one of our favorite spots because there is so much to do all year round!
A hometown favorite, with both growing up here it had to make the list! 2 hours from Indy, you can pop up to Fort Wayne and check out things like Science Central or the gorgeous downtown Murals! I will say, most of these suggestions probably depend on the weather, but they have a few good options that are indoors too!
The farthest trip suggested, it’s perfect for a spring break to get out, but not be gone for a whole week! Drive over the Mississippi and by the Arch, then head downtown to go up in the arch as well as see other things like The St Louis Science Center and Fitz’s Root Beer!
If you are looking for something pretty chill that could include some good old town cooking, a slight history lesson, and maybe some hiking, then make sure to consider Brown County, Indiana! We visited to check out the home of TC Steele and we’d love to head back. They’ve also added to this Historical Indiana Site. Gorgeous scenery and a fun little downtown in Nashville, IN.
Keep an eye out for more ideas on how to spend spring break with your kids. We are more a last-minute on a whim kind of fam and with some work travel getting in the way of spring break this year, staycation ideas will be front of mind!
Have you been to any of the above places?
