Walt Disney World

A spring break spent at Walt Disney World Resort is one the family will never forget.
Head to Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains for an unforgettable spring break. Camelback Lodge is the best place for families to kick back, relax and enjoy their vacation.

Splash around at the indoor water park, take a ride on the wild side at Camelback Mountain Adventures, zip through the trees, ride the Mountain Coaster and much more.
If you are looking for more of an educational experience for the family, Williamsburg, Virginia, is the perfect place. Travel back in time and get a taste of what it was like during the 18th century. Walk down cobblestone streets and explore original colonial buildings. Once you’ve learned all about historic Williamsburg, treat the kids and yourself to a fun, thrilling day at Busch Gardens.
Another educational but fun destination for the family is Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is filled with important and historic sites from the American Revolution. Visit Betsy Ross’s house, see the Liberty Bell, explore Independence Hall to see where the Declaration of Independence was signed and much more.

The Peninsula Beverly Hills makes staying in a suite even sweeter! Guests who book one of the hotel’s elegant suites are offered complimentary use of a luxury BMW for the length of their stay.
