Spring Break on the CheapPosted on March 20, 2013
March is one of my favorite months of the year: warmer weather, St. Patrick’s Day, and March Madness. I love all of it. The one thing I do miss is spring break. Spring break was the best. You get an entire week off and with no responsibilities! It’s amazing.
When I was in college, I took a spring break trip a couple of times. I went to the typical spring break destinations if I had to do over again, I would’ve been a little smarter about how much money I spent on the trip. A typical spring break would cost over $1,000! Looking back, that’s crazy to me, considering I was a broke college student!
Anyway, I recently started thinking about where I would go now for spring break (if I still had one), and I came up with an alternative idea that is still fun and doesn’t cost a ton of cash.
I love being outside, especially when the weather is nice. Who doesn’t, right? Why not visit a local state park and go camping for a few days? The cost to camp at a state park is cheap, and all you need are some friends, basic camping equipment, and food. Go hiking, fishing, and cook out! It’s a fun way to get away and not have to break the bank to do it.
Do you have any ideas for inexpensive spring break trips? Let us know in the comments.
