The best family vacations in March are wide and varied; there is one thing they have in common: vacation rentals make them all better. Here are 10 of the best choices for family vacations in March.
The Grand Canyon
The sheer size of the gorges, unique rock formations and rugged ridges of the Grand Canyon
are utterly awesome, especially in March. It is a marvelous place to get in a bit of hiking as well as rafting or kayaking.
Yosemite National Park
Got a budding photog in your group? Then check out the Ansel Adams Photographic Gallery
in the Yosemite National Park
. The photographs of Vernal Falls and Half Dome will give you a positive awareness of what the American West is all about. You can also take your family on one of the various camera tours that leave daily - the March weather is great for this!
and immediately the kids will respond with " Disney World
!" There are also many other attractions you and the young ones will enjoy. Added attractions are the Harry P. Leu Gardens
and the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art
. While March brings Spring Break crowds, March may be the only time you can get the kids off from school, and it certainly beats a summer trip - which will feature sweat-worthy temperatures and even more crowds.
Yellowstone National Park
All year around there are countless historical and cultural activities taking place at Yellowstone National Park
. You'll find hands-on gold mining, archaeology and Native American history. Of course, if you have fishing in your blood, one of the best family vacations in March will be found at Yellowstone. During the spring, many roads open up to roller bladers, hikers, and other pedestrians.
If it's warm sunny days on the beach you are looking for then San Diego
is the place to be. Balboa Park Museum
displays artifacts that will astound you. When not playing in the warm sand at the beach, you can always visit the zoo. At the end of a long day of animal-watching, head back to your vacation rental to relax and enjoy a quiet meal.
This is where you find the Alamo
and the Palace of Spanish Governors
. You can't leave before you take the family to the San Antonio Museum of Art
. Education and vacation fun are all rolled into one unforgettable experience. The three-mile river walk in San Antonio
will cap it all off leaving you with an urge to do it all again one day. Best of all? You can experience Texas during its lovely springtime weather before the grueling summer hits.
What is better than a vacation on the island of Oahu, specifically Honolulu
? The little kids will simply love the Waikiki Aquarium
, the teens will run amok in the Ala Moana Centre
and at the Manoa Falls
between soaking in the March sun on Waikiki beach.
There is no secret about what's awaiting you in Washington, D.C.
But if you do plan to take a vacation in the national capital why not do it in March? The time when the Tidal Basin cherry trees are in full bloom. T he Cherry Blossom Festival
begins at the end of March making this one of the best family vacations in March. It's a great time of the year to visit D.C. with concerts, fireworks and family fun.
There is a certain mystique about history that presents you with such things as the famous Liberty Bell that rang in 1776 to call people together for the first reading of the Declaration of Independence, let alone Independence Hall
where the famous document was signed into history. History is so real in Philadelphia
; you can feel in it your bones. A March vacation is an especially good idea because you and the kiddos can attend the Philadelphia St. Patrick’s Day Parade
If golf is your passion, Myrtle Beach
will be your heaven where there are over 100 golf courses and many putt-putt courses. There's the Family Kingdom Amusement Park
and evening entertainment before retiring for the night at the Carolina Opry
or the Alabama Theatre
