Spring Break is something that many students look forward to all year. It’s the first big break after the Christmas and New Years’ holidays and usually by that time many are itching to get out of the classroom and away from it all. While there are many options one can choose for a vacation we wanted to highlight some of the reasons why you should spend Spring Break at the beach.

5 reasons you should spend Spring Break at the beach

1. Warmer Weather

Although the calendar may say spring is here, Mother Nature may have a differing opinion when it comes to the weather and Spring does not always mean sunshine and blue skies as much as we may want or need it to. That’s exactly why a Spring Break trip to the beach is a great idea. Cities on the California coast, Oceanside included, stay around 70 degrees year round and are known for their sunny and warm dispositions. So shake off that winter coat and stick your toes in the sand instead and experience some actual warm spring weather to break in the new season.

Spring Break is a great time for a family vacation because it means all of your kids are out of school at the same time and it’s also an easier season for mom and dad to get time off too but where do you vacation to when you have to entertain such a variety of ages?
