Hugabox | 5 Best Places for Spring Break in 2019
Posted on March 11 2019
Move over Daytona and Palm Springs! These five places are the places to go for Spring Break in 2019.
Your spring break location can be many things. A place to thaw out from the winter cold or enjoy the last bit of mountain snow. A place to relax and unwind after finals. A place to meet up with your friends who go to school far away from you. And of course, a place to party!
Here are the best places we’ve found to spend your Spring Break this year.
- BEST BEACH SPRING BREAK
Ok, we couldn’t pick just one beach location!
When most people think of Spring Break, they think of the beach. While Daytona, Palm Springs, or Myrtle Beach can be fun places to spend your break, you’ll be sharing them with the thousands and thousands of other spring breakers who also wanted to spend their time at these go-to Spring Break destinations. If you want the beach without the crowds this year, how about Kiawah Island in South Carolina? Just outside Charleston, SC, you get all of the beach relaxing and way less of the Spring Break crowds.
If you want a trip with a short plane ride, but still get some International flair, what about Puerto Rico? Not only is Puerto Rico a beautiful place to visit with ample beaches, but they could also really use the influx of travel dollars as they are still rebuilding after they were hit with a hurricane last year. Another Puerto Rico bonus? If you’re a US citizen, you don’t need to pack your passport!
And lastly, if you want the big party and the beach, check out South Padre Island, Texas. Texas may not be what comes to mind when you think Spring Break, but South Padre Island has made a name for itself as one of the Spring Break destinations. Live music, water sports, and beach parties, they have everything you’re looking for if you want that classic “Spring Break” experience.
- BEST RELAXING SPRING BREAK
Yosemite National Park, California.
Get back in touch with nature and visit Yosemite or another national park. Studies have shown that spending time in nature can help decrease depression, increase attention spans, and improve your overall wellness. Come back from Spring Break recharged and ready to take on the second half of the school year!
Many of the best campaign sites are first-come, first-serve. Plan on getting there early to get a good spot if you are camping. If you are renting a cabin, many of the national parks spots book up a year in advance, but check the park you want to visit and even check the surrounding area of a good AirBnB or VRBO if the cabin options are full!
- BEST SNOWY ADVENTURE SPRING BREAK
Oh yes! This Canadian gem is perfect for a snowy adventure. Whether you’re a skier, snowboarder, or a sit-by-the-fire kind of person, Whistler has something for everyone. It’s getting late in the season for snow, so take advantage of it while it’s still here! Whistler also has many cabin/condo/apartment rental options, but they do book up fast, so reserve your accommodations soon.
- BEST PARTY LOCATION FOR SPRING BREAK
While what makes a good party is somewhat subjective, however, there is a consensus that Cancun still takes the best place to party during Spring Break cake! A top beach destination that prepares for the crowds who flock to this Mexican hot spot every year. Parties, live music, and cheap booze.
While Cancun is a go-to party place, if you decide to go, please to take precautions. Never travel alone, never let your drink leave your sight, have a plan on how to get back to your hotel for the night, and never carry large amounts of cash with you. You can have a great and safe time with a little forethought!
- Rent a House. Consider renting a house with your friends on AirBnB or VRBO. Pooling your money can get you a great deal on your accommodation, plus in large homes, you will be able to cook your meals, saving even more.
Divide up the meals and grocery shopping in advance and have everyone be responsible for one meal. Pick a home somewhere that’s close to activities like hiking or even walking distance to a town to explore.
