Winter brings with it Christmas and New Years, but after that, all we are left with is cold, bleak winter blues, and for all you students, exams! Don’t let the winter weather get you down, however, as Spring is on the horizon, and we have listed the best places to travel in March that will help you get your mojo back. Let’s take a look at just what you can do during Spring Break 2020 and where you can go.
What is Spring Break?
Spring Break is the vacation period that takes place in early spring for university and college students. The holiday was first introduced in 1930 and has since earned itself a reputation for being an opportunity for students to spend the entire time partying and drinking in popular destinations. It attracts thousands of young students who are wanting to let their hair down and enjoy some fun in the sun.
When is Spring Break 2020?
Spring Break takes place between February and mid-April, but it often depends on the college that you are attending, so be sure to double-check before you book anything! Nevertheless, the long span of Spring Break usually means that the peak period is March. So, if you are looking for some of the best places to travel in March, then you are in the right place as we can help you decide what to do once the winter disappears.
Miami Beach, Florida
Of course, we have to start with one of the most famous destinations for Spring Break. Miami Beach, Florida, is known for its eccentric all-night parties, and so is often the go-to choice for many young travelers, but there is so much more to Miami than just a party destination with stunning beaches.
What to Do?
Yes, partying is a rite of passage of any Spring Break, but nothing is stopping you from exploring more of the beautiful destination. Save the partying for the weekend (there are plenty of festivals to choose from), and spend the weekdays exploring Miami. Different restaurants and cafes are abundant, as well as a wide variety of activities, from museums, parks, and attractions (some of which are free to enter). Take a stroll through Miami’s number one attraction, Vizcaya Museum, and Gardens, which provides breathtaking views of the estate surrounded by ten acres of gardens or explore the Jungle Island and see the tropical side of Miami.
White Mountains, New Hampshire
When you have had enough of being cooped up over winter and spending too much time at your desk, head to this beautiful destination in New Hampshire. It will provide you with a very different Spring Break, but it allows you to explore the outdoors like never before.
What to Do?
You won’t find sandy beaches and the beaming sun here, but you will find stunning waterfalls and even a bit of snow. Take the opportunity to get your hiking boots out and explore one of the many trails in the mountains. If you don’t want to hike, you could give mountain biking a chance or learn how to ski; you could even try a spot of bird watching if you fancied it. A destination such as this enables you to take a breather from everyday life.
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
We’re back to the beaches! If you want to experience loud clubs with cheap drinks and beautiful beaches, Myrtle Beach in South Carolina offers both. The quieter beaches in South Carolina are an attractive feature for many that allow you to swim, chill, and even take part in water sports; however, there is lots more to explore here.
What to Do?
Check out Mt. Atlanticus miniature golf or the Ripley’s Aquarium Myrtle Beach for when you need a break from all that sun, sea, and sand. Or discover the wonders of the amusement parks during the day.
New Orleans, Louisiana
The great thing about New Orleans is that there is something for everyone. When you are traveling with your friends, this is difficult to achieve, but in New Orleans it is possible.
What to Do?
The historical city is bursting with stunning architecture that speaks volumes about the culture. If you want to learn more, there are plenty of tours that will take you around the wonderful city, including ghost tours. For foodies, there are plenty of different restaurants that will make your taste buds very happy. This is all made even better by the fact that they also hold festivals so you can party the night away after a day of exploring the city.
