Spring Break is coming up for students in southern Indiana, and here are some ideas for you to keep them busy.

By now, many families have Spring Break plans. Perhaps they are traveling to Florida to chill on the beach for the week. Maybe they will be taking a cruise, or they will travel out of state for a different kind of adventure. However, as we all know, not everyone travels to get away for Spring Break. If you are one of those households that don't have any Spring Break plans, but would like to do something fun for the kiddos still while they are out of school, I found some fun adventures that you can take right here in southern Indiana.

3. Camping

Maybe you and the family wouldn't mind a week or weekend of camping (depending on the weather of course)? It's one of my favorite things to do. You can soak in the scenery, go hiking, boating, fishing, and more at any of the many campgrounds we have here in southern Indiana. Not to mention, it's a great way to get away from all of the stresses of the world and really bond with your family.
