As the winter snow slowly melts away, there is one time frame on everyone’s calendar that high school students are looking forward to- spring break. Finally, the chance to get away with your best friends and make memories that will last a lifetime.
Unfortunately, some locations can be slightly more strict about allowing high school spring breakers since you aren’t of legal drinking age yet. However, this doesn’t mean that your spring break can’t be just as fun! It simply means that you might have to be slightly more creative for some of the perfect places to spend your time out of school.
Top Locations For A High School Spring Break
Read below to discover some of the best locations for a high school spring break!
One of the first places that almost always pops into someone’s mind when they think of “spring break” is Florida. With beautiful weather during the early spring months, it makes perfect sense!
If you’re looking to explore an interesting city with a lot to do, then Orlando Florida could be the best city for your high school spring break. The city features an entertaining boardwalk that is host to constant events, 18 and up night clubs, and amazing restaurants.
If you’re a fan of Disney, then this is the city for you. With four theme parks and two water parks, you’ll have plenty to do during the day. If you can’t decide on which park you want to visit and your group only has a limited number of days, consider buying a park hopper pass!
Orlando also makes for a good travel location due to its proximity to multiple beaches. Within about an hour’s drive you’ll be able to be on the waterfront!
If the beach doesn’t happen to be your thing, why not give the mountains a try! Denver is surrounded by beautiful scenery that is perfect for hiking and sight-seeing. Close to multiple national parks, your group will have plenty to do with hiking into the mountains or camping at a nature preserve for a couple of days.
Into skiing or snowboarding? Denver and the surrounding areas could still have plenty of snow in the early spring months for you to spend plenty of time in the snow. This option is perfect for people who are looking for a different kind of high school spring break than all of the beach-goers!
Not the outdoorsy type? Into history? Home to the nation’s capital, Washington D.C offers a large variety of interesting options for a high school spring break, especially if you or your group loves history.
One of the world’s top museums, the Smithosian, resides in Washington D.C., and most parts of it are free. If you’re someone who has a love of journalism, take time to check out the Newseum which features the United States’ story as told through headlines. If you’ve ever wanted to pretend to be a spy for a day, then the International Spy Museum could be the perfect place to put your undercover skills to the test.
Scheduling the perfect spring break is never easy- especially if you’re in high school. Check out a list of hotels you can rent at 18 to make your decisions a little simpler!
