Sand in your toes, Ocean Breezes Babes in Bikinis…nope, none of those. If you’re looking for a hot Spring Break destination, I’m advising you head North.
You see, the Canadian Dollar is down to 84 cents per dollar, which means you get an immediate 19 percent discount just by crossing the border. With gas as low as I can remember and flights from the East Coast to Toronto and Montreal just 4,500 each way, Canada is also much cheaper to get to than it used to be.
Niagara Falls averages a temperate 13 degrees (55 F) for a high the first week of April. Even at night it barely hits freezing. And it’s only a 7 hour drive from DC. A little farther north? Quebec City perhaps? A bit nippier at 9 degrees (42F) for an average high. Still totally do-able.
The Deal Kids and I spent a lovely long weekend in Montreal and Quebec City a couple of years ago for the very first Camp Mom. We all fell in love with Tim Hortons and kids still talk about the Four Points Sheraton in Quebec City…both for the hot tub that was bigger than the pool and for the fact that I ate Moose Tartare.
Have you considered Canada this Spring (or have you done it)? Please share in the comments.
