Anyone have any good Spring Break (1st week of April) ideas? I would prefer somewhere within driving distance from Indiana. I would prefer somewhere on a beach and not a high rise, if possible.


Many of us went to Havana. Some stayed at Hotel Nacional.

Sinatra and Ava Gardner were there one year.

Hard to believe today, but unless you were on the beach in Cuba you dressed up, even a jacket and tie at dinner. Always trying to impress the ivy league angels with rich daddys.


Ivy league is overrated.

The sweet spot is right around Colgate/Gettysburg level.


Suggestion - Florida panhandle

We live in Indy. Many folks drive the 12-13 hour drive to the Florida panhandle. Towns along route 30A are very nice. We went years back and rented a place in one of the towns there. The weather can be a little dicey at that time in terms of how warm but we really enjoyed the entire scene there. Quite family oriented


Too far north for early April. *

The water will be cold.

But the beach will have plenty of sunshine.

I've twice spring-breaked in the panhandle in mid-March. We rented a house somewhere between Destin and Panama City Beach (I think it was Seaside), and we all came home with sunburns. The wind can have a chill in the air, and the water was definitely chilly, but we dined outside and sat on the beach all day, no problem.


Actually, one guy in your group had a golden brown tan.

No burning here.


Seconded. 30A is a hidden gem.

We liked Watersound, just east of Seaside, but you can hardly go wrong with any of the towns down there.


SHHHH....You'll ruin it if you tell everyone. *
