Ideas for Family Travel Beachfront Home Rentals

by Nathaniel Broughton

If variety is the spice of life, than spontaneity is cayenne pepper. So why not spice up your family’s spring break by taking off to a great coastal location for a week this March or April? Of course, planning in advance always has its benefits, but those who wait until a month (or even a week before) are likely to find some great last minute specials and have a terrific surprise for the kids.

Though some spring break locations are notorious for crazed young co-eds on the beach, there are many coastal locations that offer an all-around family friendly atmosphere. While college spring breakers tend to stuff the maximum number of people in rooms at the giant hotels, families will find a much more peaceful retreat at single family homes and condominium complexes on serene beaches. So even if you’re taking off for a spring break destination that attracts crowds of all ages, you’ll be guaranteed to find miles of quiet sandy beach for everyone to enjoy the week away from school.

Fort Morgan, Alabama

One destination that has family appeal year round is Fort Morgan, Alabama. Located near Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan is a much smaller community that manages to avoid the hustle and bustle of the more populous nearby area. No matter the size of your group or the amenities you seek, there are a wide variety of rental properties in Fort Morgan including beachfront single family homes, duplexes, and condos. For a little adventure you can set sail on a deep sea fishing expedition, or if relaxation is more your style, you can relax on the sandy white beach.

Lincoln City, Oregon

For the family that loves the rugged outdoors, Lincoln City, Oregon, is a terrific destination for a nontraditional spring break getaway. Though the average temperature in March and April is in the high 40s to low 50s, it’s the perfect place where you can toss on a jacket and enjoy Oregon’s beautiful central coast. Family friendly activities range from spending time at the parks to riding the bike trails to flying kites, one of the most popular activities in Lincoln City. Plus, with the many homes perched on the ocean’s bluffs you’ll be likely to find a vacation home with a fantastic view, along with many other amenities suited to your needs.

Whether you’re planning on soaking up the sun, exploring the wilderness or just enjoying quality family time, a last minute spring break can be the perfect ingredient to spice up life for every member of the family!
