According to every adult ever, Spring Break doesn’t have to be just for the kids. After the winter most of us have just had, we deserve a break (sounds good, doesn’t it?). Your college years might be behind you, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t mark the start of spring with a memorable getaway.
If science has taught us anything it is that we owe ourselves time away to take a vacation from life and business.
That’s right…science says so!
In fact, we’ve written about it in this newsletter before. But it definitely bears repeating.
At the same time, you probably aren’t up to cramming yourself (and likely your family) onto one of those all-you-can-drink, party-heavy, MTV-themed, reality show islands.
The term “Spring Break” often inspires thoughts of white, sandy beaches. However, the road less traveled can often be the best place to rest your weary soul.
Consider a peaceful trip to the Southwest. Central Arizona is a temperate climate this time of year and the colors are bright and vivid. There’s no shortage of resorts, golf courses and eclectic towns that offer an array of activities.
Another area which offers a family-friendly, springtime temperate climate is the Pacific-Northwest. The Cascade Mountains are absolutely stunning in spring. As is the case in the Southwest, places like Central Washington and Northern Oregon offer up small town settings which are the perfect setting for foodies and golfers alike. Oh, and bring your fishing poles because the trout are biting like crazy!
Lastly, the website bustle.com, a leader in the travel industry, lists Savannah, Georgia as the top place for adults looking to get away for Spring Break. This one is a little less on the family friendly side, so consider sending the kids to grandma’s. With a backdrop of Spanish moss and elms, Savannah is home to some of the country’s oldest and most stunning architecture. The World of Beer is one of the largest craft beer joints in the country. Their list of brews to choose is over 500 selections long! Good times!
How ever you decide to enjoy yourself, try to remember that you got into business to earn enough to have extra time to enjoy yourself. Without actually doing so, what is the point? Have fun. Take a load off! Live a little!
