Wondering about the reasons to take a spring break in February? You’ve graduated college and you’ve found yourself in the real world. Sitting at a desk all day is eerily familiar to the approximately 17 years that you spent inside the walls of a classroom. Getting out of the classroom can mean monotonous days with no engraved spring breaks in sight. You are young and deserve to see the world so take your life back and use those days off. Here are the best reasons to take a spring break in February.
The inevitable...“I want to travel the world, but I have no way to afford it”. February is a calm time in travel for many reasons and therefore the flight prices for February vacations are cheap! Also, booking close to the date can provide crazy low deals when using apps like Hopper or Kayak. For example, fly to Iceland from Los Angeles for a week for only $317, to Puerto Rico from Chicago for $272, or to Barcelona from New York City for $420. Take a look at these apps and fly to your dream destination in just a couple of weeks! Saving on a flight is one of the best reasons to take a spring break in February.
Spring break comes with crowds and a lot of drunken college students. If you take your vacation early you can see your destinations and all of the sights with fewer people, less drama, and more of a chance to really get the true ambiance of the culture. Also, on the plus side, since there are fewer crowds, all the alcohol and drink deals can be yours.
3. Visit Exotic Places
Low tourist populations and cheap flights create an opportunity for you to visit one of your dream exotic places and leaving all your friends at the office jealous of your Instagram feed. The combination of less and cheap allows you to really get a taste of your destination as the locals see it. Spend your days relaxing in Bali or exploring the pride lands on safari in South Africa. Is your suitcase packing itself yet?
4. Stave off the Winter Blues
After Christmas and New Year's comes the inevitable winter slump. This winter has been especially brutal and who wouldn’t want to take a break from the snow and the below 0 temperatures to spend the day in the sun, eating delicacies from the local market and seeing sights that you’ve always dreamed of. So stop shoveling and sitting inside waiting for the warming temperatures of spring to come rushing in and check one more destination off of your bucket list.
