This Spring Break, I Think I’ll Pass…

spring break

Palm Beach County spring break is right around the corner, which means as a Boca Raton parent, you basically have one of three childcare options:

  1. Spring Break camp
  2. “Camp Mom” a.k.a. stay home
  3. Take a vacation

This year, due to all the COVID-19/Coronavirus news, I predict that many local families will be canceling their vacations in favor of options 1 and 2 (as I frantically Google cheap Disney Cruise Line prices…). We’re lucky that our area has some amazing Spring Break Camp options available. But, if you decide to go full on “Camp Mom or Dad” like me this year, here is a great idea that could make one or two of your local Spring Break days feel more like a luxury vacation than the quarantine/house arrest you might be envisioning.


Have you heard about ResortPass? This company’s goal is to turn any ol’ day into an indulgent day-cation at a beautiful local resort. Here’s how it works: Head to the ResortPass website and search hotels using “Palm Beach, FL” as your location and one of the dates during spring break. Then, peruse all of the family-friendly resort options in our area!

I personally have my eye on a weekday at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. For $65 for adults and $30 for kids, our family can enjoy most (if not all) of the amenities of the resort without having to shell out big bucks to spend the night. If Ft. Lauderdale is more your speed, check out the Conrad Ft. Lauderdale Beach. In addition to poolside food and beverage service, they even offer cabana and daybed options at the property ranging from $175-$300! That can be really worth it for a family of four!

This cool South Florida weather won’t last forever, so I plan to take advantage of the long, lazy spring break days ahead and spend much of them outdoors. With my toes in the sand, a margarita in my hand and a view of my daughter building a sand castle by the ocean, I have a feeling I won’t be that disappointed we decided to stay local for spring break this year.
