I must admit, after braving the extremely cold conditions this week, I'm ready to start planning for a trip to the beach. ASAP. Spring Break is really right around the corner, and if you're like me, you don't want to wait until the last minute to plan something fun for the whole family.

USA Today has some awesome suggestions about the coolest places in the USA to visit, and ones that the entirely family will love. Especially the kids. I don't have children at home anymore, but boy, these sure look like destinations I would love to go to as well! It's never too early to get a game plan together, because before you know it, we'll be wearing our bathing suits and flip flops again. Check out some of the fun places on the list below.
