After a long winter, spring break is a time to take a break from the cold, from finals, and from everyday life to relax, unwind, and spend time with your friends or family. Of course, the hard part is deciding what to do on your break. Whether you’re staying in your hometown or going overseas for a vacation, consider these ideas while you plan your adventures.

  1. Take a Cruise

If you want a classic spring break adventure, consider taking a cruise. If you’re sticking close to home, river cruises or cruises along the bay are a great way to spend an afternoon gambling, sipping on your favorite drinks, dancing, and eating great food. If you’d prefer something longer, consider Greek Island cruises that get you away from home and into beautiful, warm surroundings. Of course, there are cruises for college-age kids, singles, people who want to meet celebrities, and so much more. The key is to find the right one for your interests.

  1. Go To the Beach

Another spring break classic is to go to the beach. Southern Texas, Florida, and even Southern California are all popular spots for spring breakers. Spend your afternoons surfing, swimming, and sunbathing, and then dance the nights away at some of the hottest clubs in the city you’re visiting. Who says you need to stay in the United States, either? If you can, check out some of the best international beaches by visiting Cancun, Jamaica, or the Bahamas.

  1. Learn Some History

Maybe you aren’t into the crowds that gather at the beaches or on cruises, or perhaps you’re just interested in a more low-key spring break vacation. Why not consider visiting somewhere that offers a lot of history for you to explore? If you’re staying stateside, Washington, D.C. is home to a wide range of historical memorials and monuments, museums, and exhibits. If you prefer warmer weather, check out Charleston, South Carolina, instead. The city’s cobblestone roads and Rainbow Row make for excellent photo ops, and history is rich in the city’s museums. Of course, both Washington, D.C., and Charleston have plenty of eateries, boutiques, and nightlife options as well. 

  1. Educate Yourself Further

If you don’t plan to leave home or the dorm during your spring break, that’s fine. There are still plenty of things you can do with your time. Why not continue to get an education during your vacation? That doesn’t mean you need to crack open the pre-law books or check out next month’s science labs. Instead, take classes to learn about things that interest you. Are you into pottery? Check out a glass and make a pretty vase to take home. Perhaps you’d like to learn more about yoga. There are plenty of beginner’s classes near most universities. The education options are practically endless. You can take self-defense courses, learn how to ride a horse, or even take a ballroom dancing course. From art classes to political lectures and more, all it takes is an online search to find something that will pique your interest.

  1. Be a Tourist in Your Own City

When was the last time you visited your local zoo or amusement park? Maybe your city has an interesting art or science museum, or perhaps it’s known for its local music scene. There are local sports teams, local parks, and a wide variety of other options for you to explore in your own city. If you aren’t sure where to start, Google tourist attractions near you. Of course, you’ll want to eat and shop like you’re on vacation so don’t forget to stop into your favorite restaurant and do a lap or two around the mall while you’re pretending you’re a tourist.

Above all else, remember to take some time away from the books and away from work during your spring break vacation or staycation. Everybody needs time to unwind and to “reset” their brains. Allowing yourself to take a break for a week or two will help you to focus more when you do go back to work and classes. Until the, enjoy your time off!
