For the past several years, I’ve taken a Spring Break trip with my mom. She works in the school system here, so we’ve always taken advantage of that time off as a family in the past … but now that my brother + dad have a lot going on, we started doing girls trips instead. And this year, my aunt is coming along for the ride! My mom and her together are hilarious, so it’s sure to be an adventure. As of right now, we’ve decided that we’d like to drive ( 18 hours!! ) down to New Orleans. None of us have been there before, so I thought I would check in with you all for any recommendations. I have a feeling that we’ll be doing a lot of walking around, bouncing into shops / eateries, and simply exploring. So if you have ideas of places to stay, see, eat, tour, etc. – we are definitely open to them.
Before heading back home, we also plan to head east for a few days of relaxing along the coast. After our horrible winter ( with no end in sight ) … it’s exactly what we need. We’re not sure where to stop, though, so again : I would love to hear your thoughts! We’ve considered everything from Biloxi, Mississippi to the Gulf Shores of Alabama, and even Florida’s Panhandle. We’re not very familiar with the South ( only have driven through Georgia ), so I’m excited to explore a bit down there and see what it’s all about. March 22nd can’t come soon enough! It’s cold up here.
