Instead of the same old spring break trips, we’ve got a few ideas for bold, unique destinations that won’t break the bank but will provide your family with new levels of fun!
Ruby Falls, Tennessee
Would you rather visit a waterfall or go spelunking (exploring a cave)? At Ruby Falls, you can do both! That’s right, this cave has an honest-to-goodness waterfall inside of it. Eat your heart out Niagara Falls! First opened in the early 1900’s, the cave has been delighting generations of tourists with its natural beauty and one-of-a-kind features. Located near Chattanooga, Tennessee, the cave is close to plenty of comfortable lodging destinations and delicious dining spots for a nice break after a day packed with exploration. Plus, who wouldn’t want to be the first person in history to take a selfie with a SunnyD bottle in front of an underground waterfall!
Didn’t get enough sledding in this winter? You could fly to the Swiss Alps, or you could switch things up and try rocketing down a giant mountain of sand! At Colorado’s Great Sand Dunes National Park, the desert is your playground. Featuring the kind of stunning views you’d expect from an Indiana Jones movie, this scenic park is located right here in the USA. Once you’ve picked your jaws up off the floor, you’ll find a wealth of exciting activities available, including riding ATV’s, sand sledding, horseback riding and the best stargazing of your life. To really tap into your inner desert explorer, don’t forget to pour some SunnyD into a canteen for an epic refreshment whenever you need it!

Covering everything from key sights to tasty local bites, it’s easy to find a tour that’s perfect for you. For a taste of the city’s “weird” side, you can visit the House of Wax featuring replicas of classic movie monsters throughout the ages.
