Who doesn't love to travel in the springtime? The weather is warming up, flowers are blooming, cooler clothes can be worn and you can plan more outdoors activities. And we have an exciting giveaway to help make that happen!

Tell us your spring travel plans or dreams in the comment section below and you can win a collection of Spring Getaway travel bags from Thirty-One, valued at $170! 

We turned to five savvy bloggers for ideas on where to travel this season. Their suggestions ranged from cruising to heading to the mountains to the place everyone loves, Walt Disney World! Here's what they had to say.

Cruising is by far our favorite family spring adventure! Relaxing poolside with the kids, indulging in delicious desserts, snorkeling in crystal waters and exploring different cultures make for unforgettable memories!"  - Bridgette Duplantis, The Experimental Mommy
"Anything that gets my family out in the woods is one of our top choices for spring travel.  Camping, hiking, kayaking, and paddle-boarding in the North Georgia mountains are all great ways to get back to nature and spend quality time with teens. Since there is poor cell reception in the woods, we generally get to connect with them a lot easier than we do at home where they are attached at the hip to their cell phones!" - Diane Hoffmaster, Turning the Clock Back
Theme Park
"Disney World is a our favorite spring travel destination because there's nothing more heartwarming to see the smile on my daughter's face when she gets to meet her favorite princess." - Linda Grant, NYC Single Mom
Natural Wonders

"A classic vacation that will please both adults and children this spring break is Niagara Falls.  The Canadian side does require a passport for those traveling from the U.S.  It boasts amazing falls' views, a wide variety of very reasonable hotels, and proximity to all the amazing Niagara Falls experiences.  Off season is a great time to visit to score great hotel rates and experience the wonder of the falls without the crowds!" - Lindsey Wetzel Johnston, Crumbs in the Couch

"Why we love St. Simon's Island: It’s a community, not just a vacation destination. We love to ride bikes on the hard packed sand beach, play corn hole while waiting for our chicken swiss at Brogens, enjoy the best fried shrimp anywhere at Crab Trap, and hang out on the St. Simon’s Island Pier crabbing or seeing what the fisherman bring in. Of course, just hanging out on the beach is fun too." - Sue Rodman, Field Trips with Sue (check out her recent post on St. Simon's).

sometimes when my husband has off (which is really rare) we just get in the truck and just drive and see where we end up. To me those are the best trips.

would love to be able to go to a beach or take a cruise, but that isn't possible right now so trips to the zoo and amusement parks will do it.
