Spring break is a holiday based purely on rest, void of obligations and a reason to catch your breath as the heaviness of the winter starts to lighten and summer approaches. For school aged children, spring break can mean a chance to hang out at home and forget about the responsibility of school. It can be the perfect reason to enroll in camps and extracurriculars not bound by the restriction of school day hours. For college aged kids, spring break can take on something entirely different. Trips to sunny places with friends, an escape from watchful parents, or the chance to volunteer can fuel kids through exams and into the spring with anticipation of a week of relaxation and fun. This year, Carlsbad Municipal School District will be on spring break from April 1-5. For kids and parents around the country, spring break can land anytime between late March and early May. Whether you’re staying in town to enjoy spring break this year or have your eye on Carlsbad as a perfect family getaway to the coast, there are a number of deals and events that make Carlsbad the perfect spring break destination this year.
Many hotels and resorts offer unique deals and packages to guests during the springtime. In anticipation of the rush, these deals can change monthly. Either way, it’s a good idea to get out in front of the rush and take advantage of deals as early as possible to ensure the best bang for your buck during spring break travel. For theme park lovers, LEGOLAND currently has a package for four that is perfect for any family. The package includes a room and single day passes to the park. For a complete experience, there is also a two-night LEGOLAND Stay & Hopper Package that includes a room, four 2-day hopper tickets, and breakfast at the Karl Strauss Brewery Restaurant.
