Spring Break is here, which means the realization that you don’t have any type of trip planned hits you. But you don’t have to go to a beautiful beach in Mexico or an exotic island in the Caribbean to enjoy your spring break. These are 2 last minute affordable trip destinations that you can check out for your spring break. Chicago
Chicago is best described as a more peaceful version of New York City. While it can still be cool in the early spring because of the lake effect, it is still a city full of opportunities for fun. Some of the most popular excursions include taking an architecture river boat tour through the canal, visiting the top of the Sears Tower, walking around their modern parks with abstract art pieces, and trying Chicago’s famous deep dish pizza. Michigan Ave is also one of America’s hotspots for shopping, so you could definitely make a day browsing some of your favorite stores. The city also features a planetarium, a zoo, and multiple art museums, so the options are endless. It is definitely a place to consider for a quick and easy spring break trip.
There is something serene about staying in a log cabin in the middle of the Smoky Mountains. Gatlinburg is a fun travel option for a group of friends looking to enjoy the outdoors of Tennessee.
