The Spring season has officially arrived in the United States, and many are planning for a “spring break trip.” For those of you living outside New York State, our first suggestion to you is to visit the Empire State. Our reasons for selecting this destination are as follows:
- The New York State has many hot spots (places of interests) for adults as well as for teenagers.
- It is a state rich in history, and has long been a leader in the political, cultural, and economic life of the United States.
- One of the principal islands belonging to the state is Manhattan Island, which forms the core of New York City. So while you are in New York State, visit New York City:
- It is the city known as the “Big Apple.”
- It is the most populous city in the United States
- It is located at the Southern tip of the state and at the Northeast of the most cities in the U.S.
- It is home to a statue and her lamp, otherwise known as “The Statue of Liberty.”
- It is also home to Empire State Building, New York Stock Exchange, etc.
- It is a major financial, insurance, real estate, media and art center in the United State.
- It is also one of the command centers for the world economy.
- There is also “Bax Family Fridays,” organized by Brooklyn Arts Exchange:
- This place is good for parents who are looking for a place to have fun with their children—to hear a story, sing a song, and play in a colorful, creative space.
- The event takes place every last Friday of the month and includes a play space (tunnels, tents, playhouses, a parachute, big and small balls, scarves, hoops, etc.) from 9.30am – 11.00am.
- Then, creative and engaging activities led by a storyteller, singer or dance teacher will delight parents and their children from 11.00am – 11.30am.
- This is a place worth visiting during a spring break trip to New York.

Our second suggestion will be the small Island of Bermuda. Though not as cheap as some other destinations, but it definitely has something most spring break destinations don’t have—peace and quiet. We do believe that most Christian families would like to take a trip for either one day or a week to such a place. After a day, exploring the underwater coral reefs and caves, take the family for a seashell hunt along the pink beaches that decorate the coastline.
There are more than 400 wrecks around the island, a huge coral reef and plenty of underwater life to spy on. You should also look out for turtles. There is a total of seven sea turtle species recognized in the world and Bermuda’s seas hold five of them. Snorkeling and diving are both popular off the beaches and Golf courses abound on the island as well.
However, public transportation is limited. There are no cars for strangers available to hire but there are mopeds such as the types we see in some parts of New York City. There are also no trains because none of the railway is working. But there are ferries which are certainly the most enjoyable and relaxing way to get around. Through this means, you enjoy the views, the life on the ocean wave, and, often, get to your destination quicker than you would by bus.
You can also take a horse-drawn carriage to your destination. Though, the bus network is good but the buses are so slow; the cheapest way to use them is to get a bus pass. Overall, for transportation, the bus, ferry, taxi or moped are the only options and popular ways of getting around the Island for many tourists.
