Five weeks into the spring semester and we are more than halfway to spring break. If you haven’t already planned where you’ll be over break, now is the time to start. We are lucky to live in Colorado where the spring break activities can range from backpacking to skiing, all depending on the weather. Here are some ideas of where to spend your spring break:



1. Backpacking


Head to the mountains and really learn about spring. If it’s in Colorado, that could mean anything from camping out in igloos to mud-wrestling. Embody Colorado weather and be unpredictable.


2. California


Hit up the beaches and warm weather on the western coast of California. You can surf, tan, shop and forget all about the three midterms you have the first day back from break. If you feel really adventurous, you can road trip it out there with your friends and maybe save some money on plane tickets.


3. Space



Rumor has it you can pay for a spaceship to give you a ride to the moon. If money’s not a problem for you — oh wait, you’re in college you said? Never mind…


4. Home


There’s nothing like a home-cooked meal and a good night’s rest in the house in which you grew up. If you’re lucky, your friends from high school will be home at the same time as you and you can catch up and pretend to be in high school again. Maybe if you’re extra nice, your parents will send you back to Fort Collins with some home-cooked meals to help you through the semester.


5. Cabo


The ultimate spring break trip. Just wear sunscreen that first day. Unless of course you enjoy the scalding pain of a peeling sunburn all week long.


6. New York


Maybe less traditional and not as warm, but definitely still exciting. You’re sure to find some type of entertainment in the city that never sleeps. There’s always something going on and lots of touristy things to do.


Remember Rammies, whatever you do over spring break, there is a way to make it legendary.
