If you are past the days of wanting to mimic The Hangover for your spring break trip to Cancun, there are ways to enjoy the warming weather that are more in line with your wellness lifestyle. We think walking around and experiencing your city of choice is a good start.
Here are 5 of our top picks for a relaxing last-minute getaway:
Yes, you can find affordable room rates in the little sister of NYC throughout the year, but we highly recommend a spring visit. The city is less crowded so you will have more access to the beloved attractions of Chi-town and it is a city you can soak in with just a short weekend visit.
Two words: cherry blossoms! A spring trip to the nation’s capital is the perfect getaway. It encourages walking around (yay activity) and you can enjoy the bevy of the city’s attractions. You will miss the Cherry Blossom Festival, but we can’t say we are sorry. You can enjoy a sneak preview without being eaten alive by camera flashes.
A visit to the beautiful Rocky Mountains is a must if you want to make a trip out west. The March weather is the perfect amount of cool and crisp without having to lug around a heavy winter coat. And, for those so inclined, you can get involved with the spring bashes that many of the mountain towns celebrate as the end of skiing/snowboarding season. Picture skiing down the slushy slopes into a man made pond. It is more fun that freezing. We promise.
Like we said, spring break doesn’t have to be all booze and sunshine. Soak in a hearty dose of scenery from the City of Brotherly Love. We love Philly for a change of scenery and, let’s be real, a good cheesesteak. Enjoy a change of scenery and learn a thing or two with this great weekend getaway option.
Mardi Gras may be over, but we know the city of New Orleans is never quiet. Spring in the lively city provides pleasant weather so you can enjoy the local life without breaking a sweat. If you are a music fan a spring trip is a great idea. The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival is in full force.
