This year our daughter’s Spring Break was the week before Easter so we already had a long weekend for Good Friday. We decided on a mini trip of just Thursday and Friday. It gave us the best of both worlds: something fun for my daughter to look forward to on Spring Break, we only used one day of vacation and we were back home in time for Easter festivities with family.
We live at the point of Indiana (you know where it meets Kentucky and Illinois) and we wanted to pick a destination that wouldn’t mean driving all night to get there. We settled on Cincinnati, OH since it is only about a 3.5 hour drive from home meaning we would only need to spend one night in a hotel. Plus I hadn’t been to Cincinnati since I was a child.
There is a fair amount of things to do in the general Cincinnati area include Kings Island theme park, the Newport Aquarium, the Cincinnati museums, and several professional sports teams. It really wouldn’t be hard to make this a location for a longer stay.
Travel group: Myself (34), my husband (32), and our two daughters (7, 1)
Time of trip: Spring Break, Late March
