It’s not too late to plan a family spring break for the months of March and April. Backroads, a Virtuoso preferred supplier, has openings on its spring break trips for the family travel.

New for 2016, is the “California’s Palm Springs & Joshua Tree Bike Tour,” which runs March 28-31.

There is also a visit to an oasis and some horseback riding.

Another offering in California is the “Santa Barbara and Ojai Valley Family Bike Tour,” which runs April 4-8 along the coast.

Looking for a trip to Florida? There’s the “Everglades to Key West Family Multisport Adventure Tour.” This tour really does include the sports, there will be biking, walking, hiking, kayaking and snorkeling. Families will also take a glass-bottom boat ride. This trip is offered March 6-11, March 20-25,               March 27- April 1.

On Hawaii’s Big Island, guests will explore the coast and the craters on March 13-18, March 20-25, March 27-April 1 and April 3-8.
