Spring Break is upon us, and if you’re so far plan-less, it’s understandable to worry about filling all those hours that are usually occupied by studying. If you’re running low on ideas or tight on money, here’s a short list that can hopefully inspire you to use your break to the fullest.

Road trip


You don’t need a plane ticket to go somewhere cool. In fact, the drive can be half of the fun for some trips. Go to places you always wanted to go, this don’t have to be far away.

Visit a festival or concert


During spring break every city offers probably more than you expect. From the smell of sweet blossoms at our world-famous Azalea Festival to Pleasure Island’s tasty Chowder Cook-off, Wilmington and their beach towns bring a spring break of tastes, sights and sounds.

Go hiking


Just because you aren’t going to a famous spring break location doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy somewhere else. You can exercise and see some pretty beautiful sights, and maybe you’ll even get to Instagram it — it’s a win-win-win.

Movie marathon


You are not searching for hiking or that kind of exercise? Call a bunch of your closest friends and let everyone bring their favorite movie and, since you won’t have school the next morning, stay up all night watching them! Make sure you make loads of popcorn and maybe it’s an idea to create a nice setting.


Last but not least, our favorite one, take some thing to relax! School is a major stressor for so many of us and that can have some really bad effects on your mind and your body. So, go to a spa, read your favorite book or go home and let your parents take care of you.

With this options, staying at home is not so bad at all! We would love to hear what you all are doing and if you have any additions to our list.

  1. This is a great and simple list. I wish I had seen it before Spring Break ended though. I ended up having a staycation and engaged in some of these activities such as having a marathon and relaxing. I will add hiking and a concert to my list for the next time we have a few days off.

  2. I love these ideas. It’s so true, that while spring break is supposed to be a breather from school, there is often times stress over what to do with the precious free time. My favorite out of the list of road trip. Road trips are probably one of my favorite things to do. Even if my friends and I end of driving for three days straight to only stay somewhere one night, then drive right back, there’s something about the endless possibilities that always results in an adventure.

  3. This is a great list! Many of the things on this list were things I pondered. Ultimately I went hikin and it was a blast. I really like the road trip idea and I bet its very economical with our current gas prices. One thing I wish I would have done during my spring-break is to relax. I was so active going half way across the country that I did not leave myself a day or two to just relax. Great Ideas!

  4. These are great alternatives to do instead of a tropical vacation destination! Last spring break I went hiking, held movie marathons with my friends, and relaxed. Doing simple things is almost a better way to spend your spring break because you are able to save your money and clear your head without planning some extravagant trip!

  5. I love this list! They are all great ideas that are always fun. These are usually ideas that I follow when planning a trip or when I have a long weekend to endeavor in. This spring break I traveled and my friends and I choose to do a hike one day. It was so much fun! I hadn’t hiked in a while and it was such a great workout and such a pretty view. The other big thing that I love doing on my breaks is having movie marathon and relaxing, those make the top two. Relaxing is always such a great thing because school is such a stressor. So having time to relax is always a plus.
