These beaches may be popular for good reason, but they tend to get too touristy, too overcrowded, and eventually, not worth the trip.
Ten massive cruise lines are offering special holiday entertainment and celebration during the Passover celebration, and on Easter Sunday.
Whether it be Hot Cross Buns, Kosher wine, an Easter ham or jellybeans and chocolate, these cruises will make sure your holiday meal is even better than the one you’d be cooking at home.
For entertainment, most cruises provide Easter egg hunts for the kids, egg decorating, bunny petting zoos, holiday parades and arts and crafts to get into the spirit of the occasion.
For the religious, each line hosts Catholic mass, Jewish Seder and inter-and-non-denominational services.

In Blackville, South Carolina, there is a patch of land legally owned by “God Almighty.”
Owned by L. P. “Lute” Boylston until his death in 1944, Boylston willed the land to “God Almighty” to ensure that the water from the land’s small natural spring would always be free for anyone to drink
According to legend, the spring now has powers to heal the sick. The story goes that a group of fatally wounded British soldiers were near death in the woods, but helped by Native Americans, who made them drink from the healing spring. Six months later, the soldiers were said to have returned to their camp, looking good as new.
At the spring, water pours by the gallon continuously from multi-spigot pipes stuck in the ground. Whether or not they believe it is holy, many locals visit the spring daily just to store up the fresh water for drinking, cooking and even bathing.
