Beaches, flip flops, and a coconut or two might sound like the perfect spring break vacation—but there’s more than one way to relax!

If you’re looking for a unique take on your traditional time off, take a look at our five ideas in today’s blog.

Go cold

Depending on where you live, conventional spring break weather—warm, sunny, and tropical—is either an everyday occurrence or a much-anticipated rarity. If you fall into the first category, you might be itching to experience something that’s a little less commonplace—like snow, perhaps?

It may not be conventional, but we think spring break is a great opportunity to switch up your surroundings and explore a place that is entirely out of your comfort zone. If this means swapping warm weather for snow, mountain landscapes or coastal getaways that are just beginning to melt for the spring, we think you should try it! Think about booking that Alaskan cruise or navigate your own way through the cool, winding waters of the Androscoggin River in New England! When it comes time to swap vacation photos with friends, yours are sure to stand out.

Participate in beach beautification

If you’ve got a knack for giving back, why not focus your efforts on the environment you know best—the beach and the water? Spring break is a great time to organize or join beach cleanup efforts or local waterway beautification projects. By putting in this time and care now, these spaces will look even better by the time your summer trip rolls around.

Take a vacation with Fido

If you’re used to getting your four-legged friend a spot at the kennel during your vacations, try switching things up and bringing him along this time! With so many beautiful dog beaches and pet-friendly state parks to enjoy across the country, you are sure to find something that the two of you can experience together.

Visit a boat show

Not quite boating weather where you are just yet? Stay local and enjoy a trip to an upcoming boat show! You’ll see more and more events spring up as we head closer to summer, so now is a great time to get back into the swing of things by picking up gear or attending a fishing seminar.

Pursue your passion project

This spring, why not devote some time to your favorite projects? Whether that’s working on your boat or whipping up delicious recipes to take on board, these endeavors are sure to bring you lots of enjoyment on and off the water.

We hope that these ideas help you embark on trips that are as memorable as they are one-of-a-kind! Share your own must-do spring break trip ideas in the comments below.
