Many of us are counting down the days until Spring Break finally arrives, while others are seeing how much they have left to spend in their bank accounts! For the friends that are on a budget, have no fear! We have compiled a list of budget friendly spring break destinations that not everyone thinks of. Check out these 6 Spring Break destinations that won’t break the bank!
1. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
While Myrtle Beach is crazy during the summer, check it out for Spring Break instead! Temperatures are already on the rise and what better way to soak up the sun than to lay on the beach? Myrtle Beach isn’t just for families anymore, especially during Spring Break! The new boardwalk features a SkyWheel and so many bars on the beach. Right now they also have great booking deals (15% off, Buy 3 Nights Get the 4th FREE, Buy 1 night get 1 FREE)! The discounts are calling my name like the waves of the ocean.
2. New Orleans, Louisiana
Did someone say Mardi Gras? What if Mardi Gras was 24/7?! That’s what you get in NOLA! Check out the great food, the French Quarter, and tons of live music! You’ll be sure to make some great memories here with your friends for Spring Break! GoNOLA has the guide for an ultimate Spring Break. It shares tips on what to do and where to get those special student discounts! Watch out for flying beads (:
3. Seattle, Washington
While it may not be exactly what you’re picturing in your mind for a sunny and beach-y Spring Break, Seattle is yet another budget-friendly, unique place to visit! Seattle has been on the rise with their nightlife, opening new clubs left and right! It is also the place where foodie dreams come true at the Pike Place Market, an original Farmer’s Market. And who doesn’t love a place where Grey’s Anatomy and Starbucks originate from!? Count me in!
4. Las Vegas, Nevada
Viva Las Vegas, am I right?! Staying on The Strip can get expensive! There are many hotels just off the strip that are just as nice as the Cosmopolitan, yet cheaper and they offer free shuttles to and from The Strip. This way you can get the full Las Vegas experience minus the added cost! Think of it as extra gambling money, right? 😛
5. Washington D.C.
While most of us think of history and yawn, Washington D.C. actually has exciting nightlife! Oh & did I mention that most things to visit in D.C. are also FREE? To name a few: The Lincoln Memorial, The Tidal Basin, Washington National Cathedral, National Gallery of Art, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the National Zoo–ALL FREE. This is a destination that many overlook because it is out of the norm of the beach vibes. Be different, step outside of the box and explore while on Spring Break in Washington D.C.
6. Surprise, Arizona
What’s better than Spring Break? The answer: Spring Break & BASEBALL! Surprise, Arizona is the spring training home of the Kansas City Royals. What better way to spend your Spring Break than with the Royals? Hoz, Salvy, and Gordo are all waiting for you! Get Spring Training tickets here. While you’re in Arizona there are other sites to see in cities such as Phoenix and Tempe and the most amazing resorts! Can’t go wrong in the desert, and you are sure to get your tan on!
