Spring break tends to be associated with drunk college kids. But it doesn’t have to be that way! We checked out some of our grown-up, friendly spots to unwind during spring break across America.


Washington, DC – National Cherry Blossom Festival


We’re starting in Washington, DC for the National Cherry Blossom Festival. For three weeks every spring, over 1.5 visitors flock to our nation’s capital for the festival where you can check out more than 3,000 cherry trees. But that’s not all! You can also experience block parties – not concerts, a pink tie party, and the annual parade. So throw on your party hats and get ready to whoop it up adult-style, because the festivities all go down March 20th through April 14th.


Phoenix, AZ – Cactus League Spring Training


If you’re a baseball fan or know anyone who is, we’ve got the perfect pit stop for you. Our spring break continues in Phoenix, Arizona for Cactus League spring training. Fifteen major league teams play throughout the greater Phoenix area, making it a great chance to watch them in intimate stadiums with perfect weather. And it doesn’t stop there! You can also meet the players and snag some autographs. This sounds like a home run of a spring break if you ask us! The fun goes through March 24th.


Sun Valley, ID – Sun Valley Film Festival


Our last stop takes us to Sun Valley, Idaho for the Sun Valley Film Festival, where fans and celebs alike can screen over 60 films. And if the mood hits you – you can hit the slopes! The fest also includes a screenwriter’s lab and an awards bash. You can check it out from March 13th through March 17th.


Here’s to having fun all grown up on spring break across America.
