AAA Spring Break Getaways


Southern California:

Most popular attractions: Disneyland, Legoland, Seaworld, and the San Diego Zoo.

Other activities to consider: Boat tour of San Diego, ride bikes on the beach, or visit the U.S.S Midway or the Queen Mary in Long Beach.

Ride the Rails:

If you want to stay closer to home, consider exploring the Grand Canyon by rail.

Several options and offers available (i.e. train only, train + hotel packages). Kids can ride for as little as $29.

The depot where the train departs is in Williams, which is about a 2.5 hour drive from Phoenix. Make sure to give yourself time to explore Bearizona in Williams.Park It:

Arizona is home to more than 50 state and national parks. With a wide variety of activities and affordable entrance fees, these parks make for a great day trip or weekend escape for families.

The Montezuma Castle monument is about 90 miles north of Phoenix, and Red Rock State Park in Sedona is less than 2 hours from Phoenix.

Stay Put:

We still have a few months before summer staycation season begins, but if you're looking to leave home without leaving town, look local. There are several AAA Four and Five Diamond properties that practically double as water parks for families to enjoy during Spring Break.

Tucson El Conquistador (AAA Four Diamond) Under $150/night at Desert Spring Oasis offers a 143-foot "Sliderock" waterslide. There's also a children's pool shaped like a fish with interactive water features.

Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort (AAA Four Diamond) Under $200/night at The property has a Falls Water Village and Kids Korral.


It's not too late to book a cruise. There might be last minute availability. Consider trying a 3- or 4-day cruise to Mexico out of California to Mexico.
