Why Don’t Adults get a Spring Break?

Spring Break

As most of us know, Spring Break is that time of the year where students plan to burn off some steam from school & exams. But we often forget about the parents that have to take off from work or arrange for their children to spend time with other family members, if they aren’t already in daycare.  But most daycare providers close down as well.  Over the years, I often wondered about what most of the adults; like myself do.  If anyone needs a Spring Break it should be us, right?

Well, I asked a several of my friends how did they feel on this subject and I was astonished at the answers I got. They had never even thought about Spring Break for themselves.  I know for most adults we are so stuck on going to work and living the same routine life we’ve always lived.  But if one year you decided to do something out of the norm.  Try Spring Break for yourself.  I suggested to my husband next year we are going to do Spring Break.  Matter of fact, I will make a plan to try to break as often as the kids do.  Why not, we deserve it, right?  Nah, maybe not taking that many breaks because who’s going to pay the bills. HaHa

Spring Break tends to be the most promising time of the year for hotels, resorts and sunnier destinations to end their first quarter strong.  Florida and Cancun seems to be the #1 big hit amongst college students from my experience.  Budget playing a crucial factor when students are planning their Spring Break for most do not work while they are in school so they have limited financial resources. We are also aware that many of the popular resorts will not let anyone under the age of 21 to check-in to their properties so often older siblings or college mates will tag along to chaperone.  I will definitely look at areas that don’t attract the Spring Breakers, just out of curiosity.

So remember when you child states that can’t wait for Spring Break you have to chime in as well and say, “Me either.”  That will throw them off just a little. But you get my drift.  It’s time for us adults to enjoy life a little and take some much needed breaks to regroup or just relax a little.




5 Tips from a Travel Insider


As you know in this day and time, there are a lot of you who like to take charge and plan your own travel or pretty much do things for yourself. So we took a moment to list 5 Tips from a Travel Insider that will point you in the right direction.

1. Keep in mind that engines like Orbitz and HotWire are at the mercy of the airlines and hotels that put the deals on their website but if you don’t see what you want you can always call a travel professional. They have access to different systems than your online engines most of the times.

2. Speaking of traveling, when purchasing airfare it’s always best to look for rates either on Monday evening or Tuesday. This is when the airlines release their discounts after the weekend sales were unfavorable. So make sure you check back if you had a long weekend of searching and nothing seem appealing.

3. Another little tidbit. The best time to fly would be Saturday to Tuesday or Wednesday to Saturday you’ll find cheaper fares instead of Thursday to Sunday or Friday to Monday.

4. Our all time favorite is the new TSA Prescreening check-in. You don’t have to stand in those long lines when returning from your vacation. This has made it so easy to come back and slide you card to avoid the headache of going through customs. Make sure you apply before your next vacation.

5. Last but not least, forgot your charger at home. No problem. Most hotels or resorts are able to help. Normally they have a variety of chargers on hand from previous travelers leaving them behind. Hotels like Sheraton’s Ballantyne would lend you curling irons – also other items that clients may have left behind.

Hope these insider tips has given you some informed information to a smooth travel experience on next vacation.
