Spring break is a great chance to get away from campus and spend some quality time with friends. While taking a huge trip can be fun, finding something a little more relaxing can help you kick back during this one week of bliss. If getting out of the hustle and bustle entirely sounds like paradise, consider packing up your tent and heading out for some beach camping.
Picture this: You and your friends wake up, open your tents and are greeted by the sun shining on the ocean. Sand and surf spread out before you, and you have all day to eat, drink and kick back. No traffic, minimal tourists due to the off-season and few distractions to keep you from totally letting go of the stress of school. It’s everything spring break is meant for: fun, friends and freedom.
So how do you go about planning your beach escape? Start by figuring out which beaches allow camping. Check with National Parks’ websites or contact local tourism boards. Be sure to ask about bonfires as well, as some beaches do regulate when and where fires are allowed. Read any other restrictions carefully, and don’t hesitate to reach out to the proper authorities with any lingering questions.
Once you know where you’re going to camp, make sure you pack smart. Sand gets cold at night, so bring a few extra bottom layers for your tent. You’ll also need to bring plenty of water for the trip, and err on the side of too much so you won’t have to trek into town. Make a game plan for food, be it packing coolers with everything you need or an idea of how far you’ll need to go to visit a restaurant. Depending on where you are, the days may be hot but the nights will likely be chilly, so pack plenty of layers.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
