Spring Break Destinations

Ah, spring break! Spring break is the week that marks the halfway point in the semester.


As spring break approaches, people may be wondering what they can do to make their spring break memorable and enjoyable. This article will, hopefully, offer exciting ideas for activities to do and trips to take. 


For those with a little extra money to spend, a cruise may be an attractive choice for those looking to go on a Spring Break trip. Cruises can be found to a variety of places, and many cruise lines offer cruises for less than $500.


Carnival offers cruises to the Caribbean, the Bahamas, and Mexico for less than $300. Royal Caribbean also offers a variety of cruises for $300 or less, and the cruises range in length from three to four days. This may appeal to working people who cannot afford to take an entire week off. 


Though these cruises may not be very long, they visit lovey places. One of the three-night Royal Caribbean cruises visits Miami, Florida, and Coco Cay and Nassau in The Bahamas. 


Those who are not interested in cruises, but would still like to visit the beach during their vacations, can find beaches fair close to home. Many of these beaches can be reached in less than a day. 


Galveston, Texas is popular destination for Spring Break, and the drive from Tulsa to Galveston can be made in about eight hours. South Padre Island, another Spring Break hot spot, is only a twelve hour drive from Tulsa. 


While not as close as Galveston and South Padre Island, Florida has some of the best beaches in the country and many locations can still be reached in under a day. Miami, for example, is only about 20 hours away from Tulsa by car. 


The Florida Keys are can also be reached in under a day. It takes about 21 hours to get to Key Largo by car, and the drive from Tulsa to Key West takes about 23 hours. 


If people are looking to remain even closer to home, Oklahoma offers many attractions to see. 


Oklahoma lakes are an option for those looking to make a day trip during Spring Break. Some popular lakes to visit include Keystone, Skiatook, Broken Bow, and Grand. 


With warm weather on its way, a dip in the water could be fun. If the waters are still too cold, however, there’s much more to do at Oklahoma lakes than swimming. People can take a picnic lunch and enjoy the outdoors, take a hike, or go fishing. 


Those who enjoy a thrill might like taking the Haunted Oklahoma Road Trip. Such stops along the route include Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Hillside Mission Cemetery in Skiatook, and the Stone Lion Inn in Guthrie. Be warned, however, that one never knows what ghostly visages one may see as they travel. 


No matter where people go for their vacation, the most important thing to remember is to have fun and relax. Happy Spring Break!
