What to do During Spring Break

Spring break is one of the most beloved times for college students as it is the last break before the end of the spring semester. There are so many things that you can do during this week-long break. Here are some ideas so that you can plan ahead!

Travel home

Many international students choose to travel home during spring break, so that they can spend time with family and friends. This is a great way to spend your week-long break, especially if you’re missing home. However, if you can’t go home because of the far distance or high cost then rest assured, there are so many other things to do in the US!

Go to a tropical place

Commonly, college students will plan a trip to the beach for spring break. Depending on the vibe that you are looking for, you can choose a more touristy or quiet location. For example, Miami, Florida is one of the most popular destinations for spring break, while certain beaches in California may be lesser known spring break destinations. You can plan a week-long trip with your friends to your favorite beach destination, depending on the vibe that you are looking for.

Go on a road trip

Another great way to spend your spring break is by going on a little road trip with your friends. You can go practically anywhere during the week-long break! Some of our recommendations include national parks, mountain cabins, and nearby cities. 

Explore a well-known city

You can also travel to a big city in the US, such as New York City or Los Angeles, to explore the area. This is a great solo or group travel idea as there are always so many things to do for people of all kinds of interests within big cities. You can try out different cuisines, check out famous landmarks, and discover hidden gems. Overall, it’s an option for those who want to be a little more adventurous during their spring break.

Learn something new

If you don’t really feel like traveling then it’s absolutely okay. You can give yourself some time to rest and maybe learn a new skill that you didn’t have time to during the semester. For example, you can teach yourself how to paint, solve a rubik’s cube, or skateboard. You can really do anything that you want to during the break!
