Spring Break has a reputation for being a week of debauchery, but in reality there are a lot of different options for how to spend your Spring Break. From hitting up exotic locales to having unique supplemental learning experiences, Spring Break is really what you make of it. Take a look at the options below to help you decide what kind of a Spring Break adventure you’d like to have on your break.
- Traditional Spring Break Fun– According to US News and World Reports, the top Spring Break destinations are South Padre Island, Miami Beach, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and The Bahamas. Get your crew together and surf the internet for amazing group deals to warm Caribbean locales, and you’re sure to have a week to remember full of cocktails, sun worshiping and the usual mischief making. Tip – Look for all-inclusive deals to get more bang for your buck. You’ll have cocktails, meals, accommodation and flights all covered for one low price.
- Alternative Spring Break – If you’re looking for a more meaningful Spring Break, check out groups like Break Away that provide Spring Break opportunities for college students that involve issue-based volunteer work with community groups and organizations across the country. If you’d rather make a contribution to society than lounging on the beach, looking into these cool opportunities will be right up your alley.
- Get A Job – While many student’s instincts are to spend money during Spring Break, it can also be a great time to make some quick cash for your return to campus. Despite the fact that you’re only home for a short period of time, there are many options including babysitting and even getting put back into the schedule rotation at the job you had during high school.
- Spring Break Exchange Programs – Some college offer short term exchange programs over Spring Break. This can give you an opportunity to experience another country without dropping a ton of money on a semester abroad program. Check with your college’s study abroad office for program offerings.
