Don't fall into the trap of thinking of spring break as an event held on a constellation of beaches in Florida, Texas and Mexico. Yes, that is a big part of this particular travel season, but just because you get invited to a party doesn't mean you have to go. Sometimes it is best to make other plans.
Avoid the beers and frat boys and head to these ten destinations -- from bustling cities to beach-side escapes -- for a sunny and surprising spring break getaway.
