We asked the ShermansTravel staff -- an avid and experienced group of travelers: Where would they go for spring break. Here's what they had to say:

"I would love to go to San Francisco! Not many people know that it's home to the Walt Disney Family Museum, so instead of going to the crowded parks over spring break, I could get my Disney fix there and learn more about the pop culture icon." Christine Dayao, Assistant Deals Producer

"Palm Springs. It's never really a bad time for Palm Springs, but there's nowhere else I'd rather sit by the pool with a cocktail and a book right now. The Amado, a tiny boutique hotel with just a few rooms, is a favorite, and I've also wanted to stay at a new property called V Palm Springs. As the name implies, the aesthetic is based on the chevron shape -- it's even the shape of the pool. Give me that, a sunset drive through Joshua Tree National Park, brunch at Norma's at The Parker Palm Springs, some Midcentury Modern architecture gawking, and I'm good for a while." Laura Motta, Director of Publishing

"I am all about year-round, steamy-weather destinations, and currently, I'm itching to visit Key West. The Ocean's Edge property looks pretty dreamy and ideal for an adult spring break. Plus, I'd finally be able to quell my obsession for visiting The Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum." Anne Roderique-Jones, Freelance Editor

"Instead of my usual sunny beach trip, I'd head to Canada this year. There's free admission to all of the national parks in celebration of Canada's 150th anniversary, and I hear Yoho National Park in British Columbia has great skiing, hiking, and some of the largest waterfalls in the Rockies. I'd look into staying at Emerald Lake Lodge, a cozy hotel with rustic details (like centuries-old fireplaces and a 1890's oak bar) that's close by one of the park's main attractions, Emerald Lake."  Kayla Becker, Assistant Editor

"I'd love to take my kids on a Disney Cruise to their own private island in the Caribbean. I hear there's something for each age group (I have a 7, 5 and 2 year old) and that the kids' clubs let parents enjoy some free time.  I even heard that the waiters cut your kids' food so that you can eat a hot meal for once:)" Gloria Collett, Western Sales Representative

"Aruba. It's my favorite place in the world, with beautiful weather all the time, a nice breeze, gorgeous beaches, lots of great restaurants, and fun nightlife. I'd stay at the beautiful and brand-new Ritz-Carlton." Brian Insdorf, Vice President of Sales

"Italy. We’re actually going for our honeymoon because I’m too old for the spring break of my college days." Scot Gale, Digital Sales Manager

"Mexico. I love their all-inclusive hotel options." Josee Lindner, Digital Sales Manager

"New Orleans! I was there a few weeks before Fat Tuesday (Krewe de Vieux weekend, to be precise) and I actually thought it was the perfect time to go, since flights were still totally reasonable, the weather was good, and you could get a piece of the Mardi Gras action without having to deal with the insane crowds." Shevin Tantula, Associate Deals Producer

"I would avoid Caribbean, beachy destinations as a lot of the usual spring breakers, families, and kids will be swarming those places. Instead, I'd do the exact opposite and go somewhere like Canada for a more low-key and relaxed visit. Perhaps Montreal since I've never been." Tammy Lau, Associate Email Producer
