Ontario students are set to take a breather from the books as schools across the province let out for spring break from March 10 to 14.

It's a time when young people can put their homework away, enjoy the sunshine (or snow) and let their minds recharge before heading back to school.

And what better time for a getaway than now, after a cold, and long winter across Canada.

Flight Centre puts Jamaica atop the list of its most popular spring break destinations, followed by Fort Lauderdale, Costa Rica, the Florida Keys and Cancun.

And if hotel bookings are an indication of anything, it's that many Canadians continue to look to Florida this year.

Torontonians' searches for hotel check-ins in Orlando increased 123 per cent over last year, while searches for Fort Lauderdale jumped 102 per cent, according to Hotels.com. Las Vegas was the third most popular city, with searches jumping 73 per cent.

Meanwhile, Montrealers' searches for Miami jumped 224 per cent this year, followed by Las Vegas with a 72 per cent increase.

But many residents of the Great White North may not want to escape the snow this winter. Booking.com cites Churchill, Man. among its most popular domestic destinations for Canadians, alongside Quebec City, Jasper, Halifax, Vancouver and Collingwood, Ont..

There are also options for people who want to stay close to home. Parents who want to keep their kids busy can go to Ontario Travel to view a ton of activities happening over March Break.

If families want to do something together, they can also take advantage of family package trips to Ottawa, Blue Mountain and Muskoka.
