5 Cheap Spring Break Trips to Take This Year


Spring break 2018 is going to be the best one yet. Want to know why? Because I’m going to give you a list of the five best, budget-friendly Spring Break destinations. As busy, stressed-out-to-the-max college students, we could really use a break once in a while. Unfortunately, if your idea of a break involves traveling, it can get really pricey, really fast. The good thing about traveling, though, is that you don’t need to spend a fortune to have a good time. You just have to know where (and when) to look, and be willing to skimp a bit on lavish hotels, resort towns, and touristy activities. Here are some of the best cheap spring break trips you can take this year.

  1. Cancun, Mexico

I know, this one surprised me too. Cancun doesn’t seem like one of those affordable destinations, but it definitely can be with some online searching. If you and your friends have a resort stay in mind, then you’ll be happy to know that all-inclusive packages can be as low as $600 per person.

  1. The Bahamas

Here’s another destination that you may not have thought of as being “budget-friendly.” The Bahamas can be costly, but in between all of those fancy hotels are less-expensive (but still great!) hotels with rates from $180 to $200 a day. Split that between a group of friends, and you could all go on a cheap and fun beach getaway!

  1. Nashville, Tennessee

If the typical beach and party spring break vacation isn’t really your style, then Nashville could be the place for you. Country music lovers will enjoy visiting famous spots, like the Grand Ole Opry, and food lovers will go crazy over all of the barbecue options available.

  1. Tucson, Arizona

If your spring break needs to involve some sunshine and heat, but not necessarily a beach, then Tucson, Arizona could be a great place for you. Tucson has great Mexican and Southwestern food, party spots, hiking, golfing, and resorts. Best part of this spring break vacation? You’ll have a good time without breaking the bank.

  1. Puerto Rico

Although the island was hit hard with Hurricane Maria in the fall of 2017, many areas of Puerto Rico are now open for tourism. Puerto Rico has a little bit of everything - beaches, jungles, city life, and beautiful, historic buildings. There’s also a great music/dancing scene and delicious food. With all that it has to offer, and affordable vacation packages available, Puerto Rico is a definite hot spot for spring break 2018.
