January 8, 2018


Spring semester hasn’t even started (for me at least) but I know that so many of us are already dreaming of spring break. The glorious eleven days in March when college students across the US take a break from papers, exams and sleepless nights of studying to chill out and live it up. Some people may have already booked a fabulous spring break getaway, but if you’re like me and are still in the process of planning, hopefully, this post will give you some major inspiration. From beach getaways to sparkling cities, this roundup of six great spring break spots for 2018 has a little something for every palate.


With beautiful beaches, a great art scene and thriving nightlife Miami is a fantastic place to head for spring break. You’ll be able to enjoy brunch at one of the cities fabulous restaurants and then head out for a full day of fun. You can spend time soaking up the sun, shopping, paddle boarding, and indulging your artsy side at the iconic Wynwood Walls. Plus, Miami is color lover’s dream, so if you decide to head to the 305 for spring break, you’ll return with an extensive collection of incredible Instagram worthy pictures to share.

The Bahamas

Because spring break is all about fun in the sun, here’s another breezy island destination for all you beach lovers! However, this amazing island is far more than just stunning beaches. Spring break in the Bahamas means national parks, beautiful grottos, vibrant outdoor markets and even swimming with pigs (if you’re up to it)! With a wide variety of spots to enjoy both the ocean and exotic wildlife, the Bahamas offer a thrill while you chill, the perfect combo for curious and energetic spring breakers!

San Francisco

San Francisco is a vibrant, modern city with a storybook charm that’s impossible to ignore. There are so many wonderful sights that make this impressive Bay Area city a great place to spend spring break! From Lombard Street to Fisherman’s Wharf to the world-famous Golden Gate bridge you’ll never run out of things to do in San Francisco! Just be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes as your adventures might be largely on foot. If you’re looking for a laid back, adventurous atmosphere where you can feel free to be yourself, this is the spring break spot for you!


New Orleans

Named by Insider Travel as the top travel destination of 2018, New Orleans is the place to head for a spring break filled with non-stop fun! With countless restaurants, great music and its own unique and vibrant charm you’ll be able to have the time of your life down in New Orleans. If you do decide to head to the Big Easy be sure to take a steamboat ride and spend an afternoon frolicking about in the French Quarter, once you’re done, eat a couple of beignets for me (they’re seriously the best thing ever)!

If you’re looking for a little taste of Europe in North American, Montreal is the perfect spring break destination for you! Explore the old town, climb up high for a bird’s eye view of the city or grab a cup of coffee at the city’s many cafes! Wandering the city’s cobblestone streets will leave you hungry so afterwards you can grab a bite to eat at one of the city’s many foodie-friendly restaurants.

    I love this post! I wish I had a spring break this year – as I’ll currently doing a full-time internship, I won’t be getting a week off. However, I am planning on organizing little getaways to Montreal during some weekends as I’m living 30 minutes away from the city!

      Little getaways are so nice! Even if you don’t have a full week you can still get in traveling spirit by taking fun weekend trips! 🙂
