Surprising Spring Break Vacations

Now that it seems all the students and teachers are enjoying their spring breaks (some are next week) I thought it would be appropriate to throw out some unique ideas for future spring breaks!

Todos Santos, Mexico - North of the popular Cabo, Todos Santos offers some of the best waves in the Baja region. Nothing says spring break like catching some waves in the morning and then spend your afternoon popping in and out of art galleries and boutiques. And don't forget to try the sea food!

Charleston, South Carolina - If you are looking for some southern charm during your spring break look no further then Charleston! With some beautiful beaches and tasty sea food whats not to love?! Don't forget to do a sunset sail while you're there too!

Big Island, Hawaii - I think based on my previous posts on this blog you can tell that I am in love with the Big Island of Hawaii. And there is no doubt that I would love to take a family vacation here in the future (once we have children that is). You can hike the volcano and see Lava, go snorkeling with honu (sea turtles) in some of the clearest water in the world. And if you're lucky, see a humpback whale!

Amelia Island, Florida - Located north of Jacksonville, Amelia Island offers everything you could want in a spring break but with out the huge crowds.

Scottsdale, Arizona - If you are an outdoor person Scottsdale might be the place for you! Here they have Camelback Mountain, with an elevation of 2,707 ft and the summit at 1,200 ft you will have amazing views of the city below. You can also take some time to visit the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Austin, TX - I think Austin would appeal to many people, they have great food, entertainment, and 6th Street. But for someone who lived an hour away from the capitol city it wouldn't be on my list for spring break. But with SXSW getting more and more popular this city would make the perfect destination for people wanting to see some celebs, listen to some music and check out some new movies.

Amsterdam - Museums, restaurants, avant-garde design shops and cutting edge architecture what wouldn't be to love?! Amsterdam seems like a fun and lively city and I cant wait to go some day...and when I do I want to stay in a floating house!

London - London has had such a year! With the Olympics and Queens Diamond Jubilee it seemed like last year was a non stop celebration! There is so much culture see, make sure to take part in some historical sights along with the upcoming East End.

Barcelona - Barcelona is the capital of the northern province Catalonia. They even have their own language, Catalan. The city offers two mountains, a first class beach and shopping that could contend with New York City. And don't forget to check out the Modernista architecture while you are there.
