As the weather gets warmer, midterms begin to wrap up, and dogs start appearing all over campus, you already know what time is upon us; spring break. If you’re an out-of-state student and taking this opportunity to visit home while you can or just a broke college kid, seeing all your friends hit the beach can be a little bit depressing.
However, just because you aren’t heading to your favorite tropical destination this break doesn’t mean you can’t have to sit around just waiting to come back to class. Here are 5 things to do to make your spring break the best it can be from home.
1. Visit college friend's in their hometown
All the fun of going on vacation with your friends but way cheaper!
2. Find a new town in your state to explore
If you are feeling really crazy, get a hotel for a night and act like you are in a new place. Find new restaurants go shopping, and just walk around!
3. Dress up and take cute pictures with friends
Just because you are staying at home this year doesn't mean you can't take fun pictures like your friends on vacation will be doing! Go to a coffee shop, find a cute wall, or just a dress up and take fun pictures.
4. Take a hike/bike ride or just spend time outdoors
This is for the people out there who don't live next to the beach or in the mountains (a.k.a me). Go to a state park or a biking trail and spend the day exploring!
5. Try/visit a new activity you've always wanted to do near you
Whether it's a new place that just opened up or doing some silly sightseeing stuff of your city, spend the day doing something new.
