Spring Break Ideas for East Bay Families

Got school-age kids? Then just like back in high school, you’ve got Spring Break, whether or not your employment situation allows for it. I’ve used these tips to visit Yosemite, Monterey, and Joshua Tree, and there are more Spring Break ideas in each post linked below.

Plus, if you need Spring Break Camp, we’ve got a great list for you. (Not yet updated for 2023, but will be soon.)

Need some vacation inspiration for family fun on a week-long vacation, a three-day road trip, or a staycation with daily outings? Here are some Spring Break ideas to explore, all within a drive of the Bay Areea.
