Spring Break 2017: Road Trip Ideas That Cost Below $500
A lot of college students are excited for spring break. It's the best time to reward themselves with some R&R after giving their best during their classes.
There are a lot of spring break destinations that won't break a student's budget. Europe seems like a pretty expensive place to go for spring break but it does provide free things for students on spring break to do without breaking the bank.
There are also other ways to enjoy spring break without leaving the city. Students can catch up on sleep and stay at home doing nothing all day, go out and pursue their hobbies as well as read new books.
Another great spring break idea is to go on a road trip. Teen Vogue noted that road trips provide a chance for students to soak in their surroundings and experience new parts of the country.
Moreover, road trips do not require that much planning. The publication shared three destinations that students can check out this spring break 2017.
