Spring Break Packing Tips & Our Top Destination Picks

spring break

Spring Break is the pinnacle of party time for the majority of college students around the US; whether it signifies a lazy-do-nothing-but-overindulge week at home, bikini-clad beach parties, or apres-ski celebrations at Tahoe, typically a lot of food will be shared and drinks will be cheered. Despite the weather or destination, there are a few Spring Break essentials that every kid should pack for a healthy, happy & fun vacation.

  1. Comfy Sweats: Traveling requires comfort. No class means you can cash in on your laziness chips and sleep in.
  2. Reusable Water Bottle: Airports, long car rides, beach days, and those far, few & in between work-out routines will leave you craving some H2O; it’s easy to get dehydrated, despite other liquids you may be consuming, so be sure to add water to the routine.
  3. Portable Charger: Stay in the loop and stay safe by having a readily accessible communication device, AKA your cell phone. Buy a portable charger or a cell case that charges on-the-go, eliminating your need to plug in behind the bar top late night, hence causing you to forget your phone in the process.
  4. Camera: Cell phones are easy, but some adventures are meant to be documented at a different level. Whether it’s fancy DSLR’s, GoPros, or your new Instapix Polaroid, snap some cute, fun shots along the way.
  5. Advil: Need we state the obvious? Check out our top hangover cures here to aid you throughout the festivities.
