Wanderu’s Favorite Spring Break Vacation Spots

We totally understand that college can be filled with long nights studying for exams and part-time jobs that leave you ready for some time off. When spring break finally comes around, you’re probably looking for an affordable trip that won’t leave you having to pick up extra shifts when you get back from vacation. Traveling by bus is a great way to lower costs and explore unexpected spring break vacation spots.

That’s right – a bus! If you’re looking to save money, then taking a bus or train to get to your spring break destination is a great option. Rather than paying for expensive airfare, you can splurge on a night out on the town with your friends or a fun activity, like surfing or snowboarding. We’re here to help you celebrate your newfound collegiate independence without spending all of your hard-earned savings.

From Florida beaches to the peaks of Yosemite National Park, we’ve rounded up our favorite spring break destinations that are just a bus ride away!

Relaxing Beach Getaways

Lounging on the beach for spring break is a great way to recharge after a long semester or bitter winter. If you’re looking for a balance between quiet beach days and going out at night, then Myrtle Beach is a hidden treasure. If you’re near Atlanta, Savannah, Raleigh, or other southern cities then you’re just a bus ride away from a relaxing beach vacation. Read more about our favorite spots in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Santa Monica.

Fun City Escapes

For travelers who enjoy live music, eclectic food choices, and lively nights out on the town, then opting for a city escape might be the best choice this spring break. Las Vegas is the perfect spring break destination if you want to enjoy a warm climate and nightlife. Lounge by the pool during the day and party at night. If you live near Los Angeles, San Francisco, or San Diego then this spring break vacation spot is an easy bus ride away. Read more about our favorite spring break cities, like Nashville, Savannah, and more!

Great Outdoor Adventures

Rather than spending your spring break in Cancun, you’ll feel refreshed after a trip outdoors. Hiking through Yosemite National Forest or biking along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail are just a couple of the awesome ways we thought about spending our spring break outdoors! Read more about our favorite outdoor spring break destinations, for rock climbing, hiking, and backpacking enthusiasts.

Whether you’re contemplating a relaxing beach getaway or a fun outdoor adventure, we hope you have a blast wherever you land. To be sure you have the best time ever, check out our guides on how to pack for spring break and how to make the most of your spring break vacation!
