Spring Break is still going strong, and if you need a vacation just as bad as the kids do, we have some quick trip ideas that don't break the bank. Almost all of these work as a last-minute day or weekend trip with the family to finish off Spring Break strong here in the Quad Cities!

Here are my top five picks for you and the family!

1. Wisconsin Dells

Let's get the obvious one out of the way first! We all know about the Dells, but this spot is perfect for a week-long trip, or just a quick weekend stop. It has countless different indoor activities, and many of the parks offer great deals for families. Here are a few:

Mt. Olympus

Kalahari Resorts

Chula Vista

Wilderness Resort

While it's a great Summer spot, it offers plenty of fun for Spring Break, with hotels ranging widely in pricing for everyone.


2. Mall Of America

This one is a bit of a drive, but the Mall of America has so much to offer that this trip could be more than just a day trip or even a weekend trip. There are days of activities here, and it is surrounded by hotels ranging from all prices.

I actually went there for my vacation this week, many hotels are well priced, and there is something for everyone at this mall.

3. Chicago

Another pretty obvious one. A great day, weekend, or week-long trip for the family, or just for the parents! It's not an awful drive, and there is a lot to do! A few spots worth staying could be these:

Embassy Suites Chicago Downtown

Homewood Suites by Hilton Chicago Downtown South Loop

Hyatt Place Chicago Midway Airport


4. Grand Harbor Resort and Waterpark

located in the Port of Dubuque, Iowa, the Grand Harbor Resort and Waterpark is an ideal and well-priced weekend vacation!

*Bonus* Rhythm City Casino Resort

This one is for the adults after you beat Spring Break. A perfect trip for you and that special someone. Rhythm City Casino Resort is a casino and resort located in Davenport, Iowa. It's basically right down the road! This makes for a great weekend getaway.

5. Adventureland Hotel

While the theme park is closed their hotel is open with two pools, and plenty to do in the surrounding area! Adventureland is another great quick trip.

Hopefully, you and the family have a great rest of your Spring Break here, or outside of the Quad Cities!
