Spring Break may still seem a little far but it is actually closer than you'd expect!
For those who don't like to plan trips out, for the spontaneous souls, or for those who simply can't afford a luxurious trip, just yet. Here are some alternative ideas for your Spring Break:
Explore your city
Whether you're in Los Angeles or in Phoenix, you'll most likely find out that there are many areas where you haven't explored yet. For those of us that have been in the same city for years and still haven't been to the little coffee shop that everyone raves about or to the perfect spot to watch the sunset this is probably the best time to go out there and explore your city. Maybe you've been dying to try that new restaurant out and haven't been able to, this is your chance.
If you're feeling adventurous this is a great opportunity to see some natural beauty. Tell some of your friends to join you on a hike or go running by the beach for those of you who live by one. If you're feeling a little more adventurous than a hike I'm sure that no matter where you live there will be a campsite somewhere near you. Although, I do have to mention a weekend with Mother Nature might require a little more planning.
Hit the Road
Many people take advantage of Spring Break to go somewhere they haven't been yet. If you're in the West Coast this might be a little easier for you. Plan a trip with your friends to go to the Grand Canyon and on your way there you might find pit stops of some pretty interesting places. If planned well and with a good amount of people (around 4 or 5)this trip does not need to be expensive, you will be sharing your expenses after all. And you'll be with great company, not to mention you will have pretty awesome photos to take back with you.
If you're still itching to get out of town don't fret! Travel sites like travelocity, Kayak, Priceline and more offer some pretty good deals that won't drain your pockets for spring break. These are especially good for those who are last minute planners. Check out their websites!
