  • Bermuda is a quintessential breaker’s paradise—exotic views, crystal waters and outdoor lounge areas fit for your wildest dreams. This is truly an escape from the ordinary (and only a few short hours by plane from much of the East Coast!). (image)

  • Grab a few girlfriends and head to New York City before the summer heat and humidity arrive. Enjoy leisurely strolls through Soho, lingering brunches, shopping, museums and nights out dancing. (image)

  • A quaint coastal getaway on the southern edge of South Carolina, Hilton Head Island is a relaxing and affordable alternative to more commercialized beachside destinations. (image)

  • If the idea of sleeping beneath palm fronds for a week isn’t your cup of tea, might we suggest New Orleans? This culturally and socially vibrant city is teeming with possibility. (image)

  • Check something off your bucket list this year and jet set off to the Amalfi Coast. Possibly a once in a lifetime opportunity, this is definitely one spring break you’ll never forget! (image)

  • Looking for a well-rounded adventure? Denver, Colorado could be just the ticket. Museums, downtown nightlife and world-renowned hiking are all within reach here. (image)

  • Mexico is essentially synonymous with spring break. Though it was once more of a trend, this glamorous oasis has earned its stripes as a go-to vacation tradition. Try some of the less frequented destinations, like Riviera Maya or Playa del Carmen. (image)

  • If Europe is a bit of a stretch for your budget (and bilingual ability), look into a trip to Vancouver, Canada. It’s still a foreign adventure—just with less stress! (image)

  • Turn those California dreams into reality with a stint to Carmel. This picturesque city in Monterey County—well-known for its photogenic panoramas—is brimming with artistic history! (image)

  • Maybe a relaxing staycation at home is just what the doctor ordered! Spend the week catching up on your favorite books and shows, or accept the challenge to reacquaint yourself with your own town. (image)

    Vancouver is at the top of my travel bucket list :) For some reason, Canada is highly underrated. Nice pick!
