You and your closest friends team up to plan the best one-week vacation away from essays, lectures, and deadlines. The earlier you book your vacation the better, but the most important decision of all is figuring out where you’ll be spending your long-awaited break. Well, no worries and no regrets, because you’re guaranteed a fun-filled break at any of these sun-filled spring break destinations.
