Most students, adults and families these days have only two conditions for a remarkable Spring Break vacation - cheap and fun. Believe it or not, the two often go hand in hand.
Consider going abroad if your passport hasn't expired. Europe, for example, doesn't have the same "spring break" concept as here in the U.S. Kids are out of school but that is not an opportunity for recreational businesses to unreasonably hike up the prices. Make the most of the strong dollar so you spend even less.
If you are determined to escape the winter blues in the U.S., you may be within driving distance of a fun and adventurous destination. Consider driving (while gas is still cheap). You can kill two birds with one stone - a road trip and a spring break vacation.
The balancing act of finding accommodations, plane tickets and lively nightlife opportunities for prices that won't empty your bank account in a week takes some research, and so we did some of it for you.
