Fall break. An amazing time to catch a break in the middle of the semester.
For fall break, most people head on home for the half a week-long break, some work more hours.
But for those that are stuck on campus and wanting to learn more about the area while having fun, here are the top five things to do over fall break in Arizona.
1. Go visit a museum
The Phoenix area is especially is full of different museums. Sometimes you can even find a specific art exhibit that can interest you into learning something new. Museums are extremely relaxing and fun to go to when you have some time off during the day.
2. Go on a hike
The amazing thing about Arizona is that no matter where you are, you can almost always find a good mountain or trail to hike. An ASU student favorite would have to be Camelback Mountain. The view at the top is beautiful and provides a breathtaking view of the Valley and Phoenix area.
3. Tae a road trip to Sedona
Okay so this isn't reserved just for fall break, this is for any time. If you have the opportunity to go out to Sedona, PLEASE DO IT. It's about a two and a half hour drive from the Phoenix area and it can be a fun day road trip with some of your best friends.
4. Go to the Arizona Science Center
If you want to go have educational fun and feel like a kid again, the Arizona Science Center is the perfect place for you. It's such a cool place to go to do experiments in and also go through different hands-on exhibits they have to offer.
5. Spend some time at the Grand Canyon
Now for all of the ASU students that aren't from Arizona, the Grand Canyon isn't as close as it might seem. It's actually a five-hour drive by car. Not only that, but you would need about two days to actually enjoy the sceneries along the way and at the Grand Canyon. This is another great road trip idea that will create many great memories.
But let me just give you this piece of advice, no matter what you do for fall break, as long as you have fun and make memories, or money if you're working, then it's all worth it.
