7 Unconventional Spring Break Ideas That Are Too Sweet To Pass Up

By

Spring break has acquired its own identity over the years. It's supposed to be a party on a beach somewhere with your friends, and if you're 21 and up, booze has definitely scored an invite. But what if you want to venture away from what's expected and fulfill your own unconventional spring break ideas that are still totally fun. It's worth a shot, right?

Just because it's not everyone's go-to plan, that doesn't mean it isn't worth doing. During spring break, people flock to where the crowds are and that's not a horrible idea, but why go down the path always trekked? Exploring out of the ordinary activities for spring break will make you a trendsetter. You'll also feel super proud that you laid down a plan and did it.

Spring break is exactly that — a break from reality for a bit. And your break doesn't have to be outlined by what the norm is. Where's the fun in that? It's your time to break away and find amazing things to do that you can talk about later when you have to head back to school. While class is out of session for this well-deserved break of yours, try tweaking your plans a little bit and make it a spring break you'll never forget.
