Spring Break for Adults: The Top Five Most Relaxing Vacation Spots3 min read
Long gone are the days of spending spring break partying on the beach, letting loose from the stress of midterms. Now that you’re an adult, spring break is a time to rest, relax, and rejuvenate. However, that can be difficult if you’re surrounded by rowdy, college-aged kids. Below are the top five destinations to consider when you want your spring break to be just that— a break.
St. Kitts & Nevis
If you love lounging on white sandy beaches while looking out onto the crystal clear, blue horizon, the twin islands St. Kitts & Nevis are exactly what you need for your next spring break trip. Aside from lying on the beach all day, every day, you can explore a wide range of activities on these sister islands, such as zip lining, snorkeling in the black coral reef, and climbing a volcano. For those looking for a good night life, stay on St. Kitts; but if you’re looking for more relaxation and seclusion, book a stay on Nevis. Luckily, it’s easy to hop between the two.
For those who prefer winter wonderlands over sandy beaches, head to Killington, Vermont. Great for skiers and snowboarders of all levels, Killington offers a wide variety of trails. Not into either? No worries, there’s also snow tubing, snowmobile tours, and sleigh rides. When you’re not hitting the slopes, take advantage of one of their seven lodging accommodations, all of which come with an indoor pool, exercise equipment, hot tub and sauna. While Fall Line lodging has the best views, Sunrise Area has limited cell service, giving you the perfect excuse to not bother checking your phone for emails or missed calls.
Off the beaten path from the other major Nordic cities such as Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Oslo, Aarhus offers the same European culture with a little more peace and quiet. With a mixture of old and new, city and nature, Aarhus has a something for everyone. Soak in the art and culture at ARoS Aarhus Art Museum, and the Moesgaard Museum, go back in time and visit the quaint Den Gamle By section of the city, or visit their tropical houses at the Botanical Garden.
The scenery and weather make Arizona a top destination for working adults. If you’re someone who enjoys outdoor adventure, Sedona is the place for you. From ATVs to biking to hiking to climbing, there’s no shortage of activities you can do while exploring the Grand Canyon. If you want a more laid back vacation, Sedona also boasts a variety of spiritual and wellness establishments that offer massages, fitness and yoga, and even spiritual tours.
Lake Annecy, France
Lake Annecy is described as “the passport for health and vitality as well as serenity and relaxation.” If that doesn’t have you already booking a ticket to this lake located in the Haute-Savoie region of France, maybe their natural sites such as Gorges du Fier, secret gardens, and Le Roc de Chère will provide motivation. Along with the beautiful scenery, Lake Annecy also has two on-site spas, which promise to provide you with the ultimate relaxation experience.
