Springing into Spring Break
Spring break is around the corner, and you’ve fall in the procrastinator section. You forgot to book tickets or pushed the date back to the point where it’s not even worth it anymore. Everyone is discussing his or her plans to head to the beaches of Mexico or travel to the city of Miami. Who said it’s too late to plan a last-minute spring break? Here is a list of a few last-minute spring break ideas you can do solo or with your friends at an affordable price.
Roadtrip to Austin
Yes, we get it. It can be cliché, but there’s nothing wrong with a little Austin road trip. The activities in Austin are endless, from ziplining to exploring downtown to even renting an Airbnb by Lake Travis. Austin will also be hosting SXSW, an annual conglomerate of film, interactive media, and music festivals and conferences.
Diving into Dallas
Dallas always has something going on, so it won’t be too bad even if you just stay here. You can attend a Dallas Stars game to watch the Stars take on the Anaheim Ducks. Go jam out with Ferg at the House of Blues, or if you want to just lay low, go watch one of the new movies coming out including “The Strangers” or “Gringo.” Or, visit one of Dallas’ museums, including the sixth-floor museum if you’re a Kennedy fan.
Hike up in Galveston State Park
Maybe you’re feeling adventurous. Why not do something with nature and hike up the 2,000-acre state park that has wetlands, sand dunes and coastal prairies? However, be aware of coyotes and some armadillos. Maybe bring a camping tent and camp out for the night. Don’t forget the s’mores and scary stories!
Soak up the sun in San Antonio
Travel down to San Antonio and embark in one of the main tourist cities in the U.S. You can be the typical tourist and visit the Riverwalk and the Alamo, or you can enjoy a different type of fun including playing with the sea animals of Sea World or the animals from the famous San Antonio Zoo. If you’re really trying to soak up the sun, drive a little away and head to Schlitterbahn, a waterpark that’s fun even for college students.
Break free on Bourbon Street
If you want to explore new culture and eat all the Cajun food and beignets you can eat, head up to New Orleans. Only an 8-hour drive from Dallas, bring some friends along, and you won’t even feel the long drive! Check out the Block-by-block guide to help you through the 13 blocks of restaurants, bars and more.
