Spring Break Destinations

The first thought that comes to me when I think of spring break is that I don’t have to attend classes for an entire week. Instead of just lounging at home, why not travel to a new place and take in all the flavors and culture that a new city has to offer? To help narrow down your searches, I’ve come up with a few places that I think are reasonable and worth a visit during this break.


1. New Orleans, Louisiana


If you’re thinking of going in a different direction, one that is not a typical, crazy spring break destination, NOLA is the place to visit. This historical city is basically a melting pot of food, music, and culture. The French Quarter is the best neighborhood for jazz, and let’s not forget the famous Bourbon Street. If you’re looking to have some fun at night, New Orleans also has some funky nightclubs and bars.


2. Nashville, Tennessee



Home of country music legends like Blake Shelton and Miley Cyrus, Nashville is the “music city.” Some of the places to visit in the city include the "I Believe In Nashville" mural, the Nashville Zoo, the Grand Ole Opry, and the Country Music Hall of Fame.


3. Los Angeles, California



Who wouldn’t want to visit the place where Hollywood was born? From driving down Sunset Boulevard with the palm trees surrounding you, to strolling around Rodeo Drive, LA is the “city of angels.” Each neighborhood is unique, steeped with rich culture and diversity. This cosmopolitan city has street performers doing shows in the Venice Boardwalk, skateboarders taking the skateboard parks by storm, and tourists walking along the LA sunset strip.


4. Cabo San Lucas



If you’re looking to party, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico is hands down the best spring break destination for college students. It's sunny, cheap and the drinking age is only 18. If you’re up for a crazy time this break, make sure you head to Squid Roe. It is four-storied nightclub, with almost everything made of metal.


5. The Bahamas



If you’re a beach person, I think the Bahamas would be a lovely place to visit. Not only will there be other college students from different parts of the world, but you will also have a fun time. From parties, to food, to an amazing scenic view, The Bahamas is the place to be.


6. Jamaica



While this place might be on the pricier side, you can consider renting out Airb&b’s when you’re going in a big group. Guests are treated with so much hospitality and warmth, and it’s nice to pamper yourself from time to time. Plus, the view is great!


7. Montreal, Canada



Who says you absolutely have to vacation to somewhere warm for spring break? Montreal is such a beautiful city with so much to do. Why not steer clear of the unwritten rules, and experiment a little. Montreal is rich in culture, food, museums, and art. If you’re thinking of traveling, why not go to a place that has so much to offer?


8. Grand Canyon, Arizona



The Grand Canyon is one of the seven natural wonders of the world, and it’s a lot easier to access than some of the others. A hiking trip to the Grand Canyon is one you'll never forget. You’ll have an adventure, while getting to witness this natural beauty.


Whether it’s visiting a place where you literally don’t sleep, or it’s a quiet and serene place, you’ve got all the options available. You can make an informed decision and enjoy your break to the fullest.
