Things To Do In New England During Spring Break

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UNH chapter.

Spring Break doesn’t always have to be about clear blue water – check out some cool things you can do close to home without spending that much money!


Boston is always the perfect place for a quick getaway since the opportunities are endless in the city. No matter what the weather is, Boston is always perfect for going to wine tastings with your girls, a romantic date with your SO or getting some shopping done just in time for the warmer weather. Boston is also a wicked fun place to celebrate St. Patty’s day which coincidentally is during spring break.

Connecticut is a good place to go if you’re 21 because they have places like Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun. Not only can you gamble but you can grab some food, hit the bars, go to the spa, get some shopping done or maybe even go to a concert.

New Hampshire

If you can’t go to the tropical beaches, you might as well visit the beautiful mountains NH has to offer. North Conway is the perfect place to stay during March because depending on the weather, you could either go skiing or visit the outlets with some friends.
