OFF THE BEATEN TRACK:
FIVE TOTALLY NEW SPRING VACAY DESTINATIONS
Guys – spring break is totally almost here. Only a few more weeks until sweet, sweet freedom (until we have to snap back to reality for the rest of the semester). The real question now is, do you have your spring break plans nailed down?
If you’re like us and absolutely behind the game and don’t have anything booked for you and your girls just yet, never fear. There are plenty of options still out there that you can easily get in on before time runs out. And if you’re looking for something a little more…unexpected…even better.
Here are our five favorite out-of-the-box destinations that we’d totally hit up for our spring break.
MAKE A TREK DOWN TO BALI
Beaches, sun, sights – what more could you possibly want? If you’re a fan of warm weather and looking for a destination where you can show off your tan at the beach, indulge in some great local food, and take a hike to see absolutely amazing ancient ruins, all in the same day, Bali is totally it.
CRUISE ON OVER TO JAPAN
In the mood for something truly unforgettable that will actually leave you totally speechless (for once in your life)? Japan during the spring might just be perfect for you, especially if it’s during the Cherry Blossom festival (March 20 – April 14). Trust us – you will not regret taking that super long flight once you get to see how amazingly gorgeous everything looks this time of year.
TAKE A BREAK IN TAHOE
Not really a warm weather kind of girl? We totally get it. Indulge in the cooler temperatures just a little longer with a weeklong trip up to Tahoe. If you’re lucky, you’ll get some fresh powder and be able to hit up the slopes while you’re there. If not, we’re sure you’ll look great lounging around the lodge with a hot cup of something delicious in your hands.
KICK IT IN MANOA
Really have your heart set on Hawaii? Skip the typical Maui and Waikiki locations and go for something a little more unexpected – Manoa. On the island of Oahu, this section of Hawaii is known for its lush jungles, soft sandy beaches, beautiful animal life, and life-changing hikes through up insanely high mountains. Be sure to pack your bag with plenty of water, your bikini, and a pair of sturdy hiking boots for this adventure.
INDULGE IN IRELAND
More of a history buff and want to get some real value out of your spring break? Try hitting up Ireland! Not only does it have gorgeous sights and plenty of great local bars and pubs, but also it’s chock-full of beautiful historical locations that you can visit while you’re there. And if you’re a fan of Game of Thrones or Harry Potter, you can totally sign up for a tour of different filming locations so that you can actually live out your dream of living in Westeros or going to Hogwarts.
