Spring break is the highlight of every college student’s spring semester. We get to travel to where its hot and have a week long party without any cares in the world. If you plan your vacation right, you can have an equally fun and carefree week. Here are my top 5 essentials for a perfect spring break.
1. ASSEMBLE YOUR SQUAD
When you’re vacationing with people, you are with them 24/7. Picking the right group to go with can make or break your experience. Don’t go on vacation with someone that likes to be in bed by 10 pm if you want to party all night. If you want to try out all the best restaurants in the city, make sure your travel companions aren’t trying to save money by eating fast food. Its imperative to guarantee that you have similar interest and want to do the same type of things while on break. Personally I like to travel with small groups, no more than 4 because its less people to have to worry about and please. No matter the number of your crew, work out all the kinks before you touch down in paradise.
Some might call me an over-planner but I always look up the places that I want to go before hand so I know what to expect. Last year while researching Vegas I found out Mondays are the best day to go to Marquee, Saturday is the best day for 1OAK, and of course Rehab on Sunday. Don’t over plan but but give yourself a basic blue print of what your vacation will be like thus making it easier to pack, plan, and budget.
3. PREPARE EARLY
When vacationing you know you need a good bathing suit, cute sunnies, and comfortable shoes. Get all your shopping done early so you’re not scrambling at the last minute for basics. This allows you to plan outfits ahead of time instead of just throwing clothes in a suitcase. The more time you spend in your hotel trying to figure out what to wear is less time you get to do the fun stuff!
4. SAVE UP!
This one is pretty simple; spring break is not cheap! You don’t want to get there and not be able to do all want to do because you don’t have the appropriate funds. If you need to pop out some days and chill other days then thats fine. While researching find out the general amount for everything you want to do so that you know how much you will need.
5. HAVE FUN!
Spring break is a week for you to forget about school and just relax! Make sure you make of the most of it and have as much fun as you possibly can. Stay safe, drink a lot of water, and turn up!
