Spring break is coming up quick! For many of us, this will be the first real spring break since before the pandemic started. Not everyone has a Miami or Las Vegas budget, so I’m here to give you some suggestions for cities to visit during your week off that will still give you lasting memories without breaking the bank!

Atlanta, GEorgia

Atlanta maybe isn’t your go to idea of “Spring Break” because it isn’t a beachfront town. But this city offers so much to do that there is no way you’ll be bored even for a moment.

The city is home to the Georgia Aquarium, Zoo Atlanta, the World of Coca-Cola and so much more! Not to mention that Atlanta is a hub for bars and night life. Since the weather is fantastic, you’ll have no problem enjoying one of many rooftop bars and lounges that are scattered throughout the city.

Charlotte, North Carolina

Charlotte is a bustling city with a rich history and a richer night life. For the 21+ crowd, there are so many night clubs and roof top bars to visit! The Queen City is also home to the very first Seltzery to grace the East Coast. These won’t be your typical White Claws, either. Summit Seltzer creates craft beverages using purees as flavor, so your experience won’t be comparable to anything you can buy at the local beer distributor.

Another idea for something to do while you’re visiting Charlotte could be to check out the University of North Carolina at Charlotte Botanical Gardens. If you’re less into flora and more into art, Charlotte is also home to the Mint Museum. This collection of artwork is North Carolina’s first art museum and boasts one of the largest collections in the Southeastern United States.

The Queen City also has amazing weather all year, so if you’re from the North you can escape the cold while visiting!

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

If you’re looking for a beachside spring break but don’t have the budget to make it down to Florida, consider some place a little further north like Myrtle Beach. The water may be a bit colder, but you’ll still get to relax in the sand and enjoy a fun vacation with your friends or whoever you chose to go with! Plus with 60 miles of beautiful beach, you’ll have plenty of space to stretch out and get some sun!

Aside from the sand and waves, Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach is another attraction that could keep you busy for a day. If you’re into golf (deep down I am, so I won’t judge) the Myrtle Beach area is home to over 80 courses that you could choose from.

Since you’ll be on an East Coast beach, make sure to set aside a morning to get up before the sun and head down to the sand for a gorgeous sunrise!
