Whether you’re looking for a fun day trip idea during your spring break… or just over a weekend. We have a list of 5 Spring day trip ideas in Southern California that everyone in your family will enjoy!
CARLSBAD FLOWER FIELDS
Every spring, the Carlsbad Flower Fields come alive with thousands of flowers. There is so much fun to be had here from a human maze, to stunning flowers, to a park and endless photo opportunities. Ticket can be purchased here.
BOYSENBERRY FESTIVAL AT KNOTTS BERRY FARM
Be sure to come with an empty stomach for this festival. There are so many tasty treats for everyone to enjoy. They even have vegan and gluten-free options as well. Pick a day and head over to Knotts to enjoy this annual Spring event. Details here.
PIONEER TOWN IN YUCCA VALLEY
My kids love this place! It is the perfect distance from Orange County, where you feel like you really took your family on a trip, but didn’t have to get on an airplane to do it! We always make a stop to Pioneer Town when we go hiking in Joshua Tree, but you can also make this your one and only day trip stop in Yucca Valley. Details here.
LAGUNA NIGUEL BOTANICAL PRESERVE
The preserve has over 2000 different plant species and over 4 miles of walking trails. It is completely free to park and enter the preserve. You can even bring your furry family members here too. I suggest a picnic lunch at this family friendly spot. More details here.
ANAHIEM ADVENTURE LAGOON
Adventure Lagoon opens up every Spring until September. Grab the whole family and head over some outdoor fun. The kids will love this place and beg you to go back every week. Details for your visit and how to plan can be found here.
