Spring Break for Grown-ups

Spring Break is the time of year where students in college get the opportunity to take a break from their studies, and enjoy time off in a beautiful locale that usually provides a ton of sunshine, and a few (or many) frosty beverages. I never actually went on a Spring Break vacation while I was in college, and I feared I might of missed out on my opportunity, but then I thought… Why shouldn’t grownups get a spring break vacation? 

Sure, studying for midterms is hard, but not nearly as hard as real life! Can I get an amen?!

A mortgage is hard.

Cooking healthy and balanced meals every day is hard.

Taxes are hard.

Raising little humans is hard. (I babysat a couple days ago--HARD!)

Shoot… being a grownup is hard work! I’m all about taking some time out of life’s busy and sometimes hectic schedule to just plop down on a beach somewhere and enjoy a frosty beverage (or many) and introduce some much needed Vitamin D into our lives.

In light of that, I researched a few amazing Spring Break opportunities that I really think grownups would love, and that also seem like an incredible value. 

3 Amazing Spring Break Trips for Adults

+Cruise and Give Back Experience

I am so incredibly excited about this new type of cruise experience that begins sailing in a few months! In fact, it interests me so much I am headed down to the Dominican Republic next week to learn about and experience it myself in depth, so I can really get a feel for what type of clients will love it. Fathom is all about travel with purpose. It will create the opportunity for people to have a cruise experience, while also making a difference in the communities they visit. It’s a different type of travel that allows for real connections and the opportunity to make a difference.

Why it's a great option now: Book by the end of the month and get a BOGO deal! This is applicable on sailings to the Dominican Republic on the following departure dates: April 10, 17, 24/May 8, 22/June 5,19. Bring your favorite travel partner and discover how even a few days out of your busy lives can have a lasting impact on the wider world we live in.

+The All-Inclusive Mexico Experience

I love bespoke travel and authentic experiences more than anyone. But I also love chips and guac with a great margarita and a beautiful pool. I am getting my fill of that right now, and this may interest you as well if life has been a little hectic and the sun hasn’t made an appearance in a while where you live. This new Hyatt property is absolutely gorgeous, and this incredible offer makes it a great time to check it out.

Why it's a great option now: If you book now until the end of the month, a stay at this property is 50% off PLUS the 5th night free. You can travel any time through Nov. (blackout dates may apply) This is a true resort experience, with the opportunity to dine on delicious food, experience home-made artisan beer at the onsite microbrewery, and watch the sunset from your private balcony.

+The Hawaiian Experience

A trip to Hawaii can always be a good idea. The six islands available for your to explore are synonymous with paradise. Take some time to experience sunrises and sunsets so spectacular, they’re cause for celebration all by themselves. What if we throw in a free 3-day car rental, so that you have the opportunity to see and experience the island however you’d like? This freebie can be applied to many different vacation packages on any of the islands. 

Why this is a good deal now. This FREE 3-day Economy Hertz Car Rental is available for any complete travel package to Hawaii (air, hotel, and car rental), and can be booked by the end of the month for travel up until December.

 

The whole point of these trips are that they’re easy and enjoyable. Now, we can do complex and life changing as well— I love that type of stuff. But as I sit here at the pool sipping a nice frosty drink, I also realize that sometimes my goal is simply to unplug and recharge and this fits the bill perfectly for me. Perhaps it does for you as well.
