Don’t go somewhere boring and predictable for spring break this year. Try one of these unexpected destinations, see something new and avoid the typical spring break crowds.


Cork, Ireland

Head to Cork just in time for St. Patrick’s Day and celebrate in a fun and authentic way with the locals. Even if you can’t make it to this destination in time for the holiday, you’ll still be glad to know travel there is relatively affordable throughout the entire spring, as compared to some other European destinations you might consider.


Vamizi Island

If you want to get away to a tropical destination none of your friends have even heard of, choose Vamizi Island. This private spot with its own andBeyond resort is the perfect place to enjoy some fun in the sun off the coast of Mozambique, while also doing some good. The proceeds from your stay benefit Oceans Without Borders and the various conservation initiatives occurring on the island.


Tokyo, Japan

With all the hype surrounding Japan this year, make sure you get there before everyone jumps on the bandwagon and starts planning their trip. A spring break getaway can ensure you beat some of the summer break crowds.



For a more low-key, relaxing spring break in a smaller destination, go with Nantucket. If you arrive in April, you’ll be in time for the 45th Annual Chamber Daffodil Festival as the region begins to warm up.


Napa Valley

Lastly, if you just want to forget your worries with a few drinks this spring break, skip Cancun and upgrade your experience with a trip to Napa Valley. The area has lots going on this season, including multiple festivals and events, so you can plan your trip around concerts, special tastings, tours and more.
