Spend Spring Break in Idaho

Friday marked the beginning of spring which means that it is time for Spring Break. If you haven't already made plans The Idaho Tourism Bureau, has seven trip tips for places you can take your family for spring break right here in Idaho.

1 - All of Idaho's state parks are open for day-use activities – hiking, fishing, picnicking, etc. – and Bruneau Dunes and Three Island Crossing state parks are already open for camping. $5.00/car entry fee. Camping fees vary depending on the site you choose.
2 - Visit Coeur d'Alene's Old Mission State Park and see the Black Robes exhibit that was once on display at the Smithsonian Museum. And there are also a number of biking trails in the area.

3 - Twin Falls area – See Shoshone Falls, Thousand Springs State Park, zip the Snake, Hike Snake River Canyon trails, see BASE jumpers jump from the Perrine Bridge and visit the Hagerman Fossil Beds. There are also a few hot springs in the area.
4 - In eastern Idaho there are also some fun hot spring resorts: Lava Hot Springs has hot pools for soaking and swimming and zip-line tours that are family friendly, as well as convenient lodging.

5 - Sun Valley – spring skiing, bike trails, hiking trails and ice skating. Families can take a guided snowshoe hike with a Ranger (confirming weather conditions are still OK for the ranger hike).
6 - Day trip ideas include Bruneau Dunes State Park, Celebration Park, Givens Hot Springs, hikes in the Boise Foothills or up around Idaho City.
7 - The Treefort Music Fest is March 25-29, and it's going on in Boise. As part of the festival they will have Skatefort with a mix of skate and music events at Rhodes Skate Park from 1-5 p.m. March 28. New this year is Kid Fort, a creative collection of classes, performances and experiences designed for all those Treefort kiddos March 27--29.

These regions also feature some of the small lodging facilities that are part of the "Idaho Bed & Breakfast Association"
