Rear View Of Family Taking Dog For Walk In Countryside

Spring break is a week that the kids won’t have school and the whole family is itching to get away, even if it’s only for a few days. Some spring break trips can cost upwards of $1,100 per person for an entire week because many hotels and tourist locations hike prices up for the season.

If this price seems ridiculous to you, Iowa State Bank has some last minute spring break ideas that won’t break the bank.

Last minute spring break ideas:

Explore Burlington- from Snake Alley to the Mississippi River, Burlington is filled with exciting activities for all ages. You can take the family for a day of fun in town and end at your favorite local restaurant. Immerse your family in the deep history of Burlington and the state of Iowa at the Des Moines County Heritage Center and the Hawkeye Log Cabin.

Take an overnight trip to Chicago- the city of Chicago always has plenty of fun to offer for families. From the aquarium to art museums, the family will enjoy what Chicago has to offer. Taking a trip to Chicago doesn’t take much planning as we are within hours of the Windy City.

Head up to the Amana Colonies- the Amanas offer a great day filled with history, great food, and culture. You’d be surprised that you are still in Iowa and not a small country. It’s only a short drive and would make for a great day trip during spring break.

Stay in town and explore the community- whether you’re in Wapello, Morning Sun, Burlington, or Mount Union, the surrounding areas are filled with endless opportunities!
