Trends / Spring Break

Sitges is one of Europe’s most lively and charming beach towns, and the perfect destination for a memorable spring break. The Spanish town is only a short drive from Barcelona and offers some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. This, combined with an incredible selection of restaurants, shops and nightlife experiences, make it a can’t-miss.

 

The Mediterranean beach town is famously a popular gay destination due to its welcoming atmosphere, but it has something to offer people from any walk of life. The city is home to 17 individual beaches, ranging from nudist to family-friendly. Platja de la Fragata and Platja de la Ribera are two of the most popular and have reputations for catering to the party crowd. Platja d’Aiguadolç is where to go if you really want to cut loose.

 

Sitges’ nightlife is practically legendary with bars open almost every night of the week. The party centers around Plaça del Cap de la Vila and Carrer Primer de Maig, jokingly referred to as the “Street of Sin” by locals. Popular nightclubs include Trailer and Pacha.

 

When you’re not partying it up or relaxing on the beach, Sitges offers plenty of great cultural opportunities. The city is brimming with great museums. Museu Maricel and Museu Romantic are particularly wonderful options. You’ll also want to swing by the Galería Guerrero to check out some fantastic local art.

 

Whether you’re looking for a wild spring break or want something a little more laidback, Sitges is sure to deliver.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
