Oh, spring break – the only reason to really even go to college these days. Spring break is the light at the end of the tunnel after a long, brutal winter of research, the break that helps you to rest, refresh, and brace yourself emotionally for the last few weeks of lessons, reports, and tests. That, or an excuse for 10 days straight of partying.
College spring break trips have been a rite of passage, due mainly to MTV and teen comedies. Everyone has their own priorities and ambitions when it comes ideas for their spring break trip, but overall, they share this one thing. Having fun and getting some sun. Some students have a smaller budget to work with and are searching for cheap destinations for their spring trip, and right here are some of the best spring break destinations for college students on a budget. Other students may want to be glamourous and don’t mind an expensive spring vacation, and want to act like an IG influencer for a week. Some really can’t afford to be oceanside somewhere, but sometimes the best vacations ideas are the simplest ones.
Here’s a wonderful list of the most ambitious, most thrilling, most memorable spring break travel suggestions for 2021. From the perfect spring destinations in the US and Mexico, to the national parks.
