Backroads Offers Spring Break Fun with the Family This Season

Trips Range from the Florida Everglades and Key West to Costa Rica and Hawaii's Big Island

Berkeley, CA (February 17, 2016) Backroads, the world's leading active travel company, today announced a slew of spring break trips for the entire family ranging from Florida's Key West and the Everglades to Hawaii's Big Island, Costa Rica, Palm Springs and beyond. The all-inclusive family adventures offer the perfect blend of activity choices for all ages including biking, hiking, kayaking, cultural exploration, great food and unlimited opportunities for adventure.

Backroads makes traveling easy for families by handling all of the planning and logistics and making booking a breeze. Families traveling with Backroads find it easier to engage with the destination, with everything taken care of, there is less family tension and as kids unplug from their electronics opportunities for interaction abound. Each itinerary balances quality time together and apart, with welcome opportunities for everyone to take a break and recharge—usually impossible on a family vacation.

"Spring break is an ideal time to embark on a family adventure. Many of our destinations are not as crowded as in the summer and the school break is a welcome respite for busy kids and their parents," said Backroads Founder and President, Tom Hale.
