1. Ski Spring Break at the Montage Deer Valley, Park City, UT
Make your last ski vacation your best of the season with spring break skiing by staying at the Montage Deer Valley. Montage Deer Valley is an award-winning resort in all areas, with awards ranging from Best Family Program to America’s #1 ski resort.

Multi-generational families can select from specially designed Montage Generation programs. These gather all members of the family together for distinctive experiences. Moonlight night hikes, art classes and cooking classes are just a few of the options.
2. Kid Friendly Luxury at Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, Riveria Nayarit, Mexico
For families who want to work on their Spanish, the Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita has to rate high on the list of luxury spring break locales. Families can take advantage of beach activities, arts and crafts and jungle activities. It has a unique claim to fame as the only resort in the world with a cultural concierge. The cultural concierge hosts daily Spanish lessons and weekly activities focused on the local/historical culture.
Four Seasons Punta Mita is a spring break destination where all members of the family can have a true vacation. Tennis, golf, surfing, the lazy river pool, a game room, spa and adults only pool complex – this resort has it all covered. And then there’s the complimentary Kids For All Seasons childcare program. Kids will play on the coast collecting shells, hiking and have the opportunity to make Mexican-style art.
While there are plenty of excursions for any interest, the most unique is their exclusive Ultimate Tequila Tour. Guests will fly via private helicopter to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Jose Cuervo distillery, experience a behind-the-scenes demonstration of the tequila-making process and tasting.
3. Luxury Spring Break Families at Acqualina Resort & Spa – Sunny Isles, Florida
Acqualina Resort & Spa embraces the charm of a Mediterranean villa with the convenience of a South Florida location. The beachfront location and three pools (including an adult only one) allow beach-loving families plenty of time to explore water play.
Activities are focused on luxury and convenience for the family. Adults will enjoy the Acqualina Spa by ESPA, yoga and nearby golf and tennis privileges. Acqualina plans a full schedule of activities for families to enjoy together while teens and children have their own programs.
Campers in their complimentary children’s program will become marine biologists in training with their AcquaMarine program.
Campers will have fun with traditional kids club activities like sports, arts and beach play experience. In AcquaMarine, they also add interaction on computers and iPads to participate in seven different themed hands-on learning experiences.

4. Luxury Spring Break Families Across the Pond – London, UK
If your family is in search of passport stamps, then London can be a great choice. There is no language barrier and most major cities have direct flights. Make the trip kid-friendly luxury from the start by booking first-class flights.
5. I Love New York
The bright lights (and shopping dreams) of New York are a huge draw for lots of tween/teens, so why not indulge their wishes with a spring break trip? New York has no shortage of luxury properties.
For the location, I recommend the Millennium Broadway Hotel Time Square. Right in the middle of the action, this hotel has larger than average NYC rooms. Perfect for all the bags from your shopping adventures!
There’s so much to do but here’s our recommendations to get you started. The Minecrafter in your family should be able to appreciate these NYC historical buildings – just remind them of how much detail must have gone into the design. And what’s a trip to NYC without a night on Broadway?
