If you are a working parent, then you understand how difficult it is to take time off that matches your student’s schedule. Spring Break 2017 is just around the corner, and, if a week off staying at a resort isn’t an option for your family, then don’t worry. Lake Forrest Prep, an Orlando private school, has four ways that you can spend your Spring Break.

Many people who can’t find the time or budget to get away are creating stay-cations for their family during the many breaks their students get during a school year. At the epicenter of tourism, there are plenty of fun, educational things you can do with your child during spring break in and around Orlando.

As their motto states, “Explore – Discover – Together,” the Orlando Science Center will transport you and your family into curiosity and exploration. Reasonably priced for both adults and children, the Orlando Science Center offers a full day of fun from exhibits, theaters, shopping, and more. Keep your child’s mind curious and eager during their week off from school.

Take a day and explore a whole other world – literally. Learn about stingrays, sharks, and the ever-vibrant coral reefs. Experience interactive dive shows, talks, and feeding times. Explore the underworld with your students.

Explore a historic experience with a replicated version of The Titanic. This interactive museum offers 17 galleries and over 400 artifacts: an amazing piece of history that is sure to leave you and your student awestruck.

You don’t believe it, do you? This unique building on International Drive in Orlando is sure to get you and your family’s heart pumping. Known to the locals as an “Odditorium,” the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum is filled with outrageous exhibits, 16 galleries, and an unbelievable amount of artifacts. You must see it to believe it!

Spring Break doesn’t always have to involve leaving for the week. There are plenty of fun, educational opportunities for your and your Orlando private school student to experience during Spring Break, and Orlando is definitely the place to be.
