Whether you're looking for a complete relaxation or full-out adventure, you'll find events and activities to fill your days during Spring Break in Howard County! Start by planning your family getaway with some awesome tips on attractions, restaurants, and much more! 

Pamper Yourself this Spring:

Pamper yourself at one of Howard County's soothing spas or wellness retreats. Go for yoga at Haven on the Lake, relax for a bit at The Salt Sanctuary of Maryland, or enjoy a treatment at The Spa at Turf Valley or The Massage Boutique. 


Get Out and See the Scenic Views in Howard County:

Go petal peeping in the afternoon. Depending on the timing of your visit you'll be able to find various types of blooms. In March and early April, enjoy colorful daffodils at Whipps Garden Cemetery or at various locations in downtown Columbia. There are 20,000 daffodils planted throughout town. We'd recommend venturing to Lake Kittamaqundi for an easy way to take in the color. In mid-April, Howard County's 1,800+ Kwanzan Cherry Blossom trees will bloom and add pretty pops of pink everywhere. 

Grace Cafe

Venture Out for a Nice Hike:

In the afternoon, venture to any of Howard County's great restaurants. You'll find locally grown Spring produce featured on many menus, before venturing to Patapsco Valley State Park for a nice hike.
