Under The Radar Trips For Every Kind of Spring Breaker

When you close your eyes and imagine your perfect Spring Break destination, where are you and who gets the passenger seat? Are you skiing in knee-deep powder with your closest friends? Or swimming with dolphins beside your kids on the coast of Georgia? Or maybe you’re on a solo venture nestled somewhere deep in the woods. Whatever your fancy, we guarantee we can help you select a spring break destination to match your taste -- and your travel partners’. The important thing is that you take that trip, because regardless of how old you are, everyone could use a spring break.

1. For The Bluebird Skiier

If you don’t live in the western United States or actively peruse the Weather Channel, our ski destinations have been blessed with snow storm after snow storm. Mammoth Lakes, North Lake Tahoe, and Sun Valley have broken snowfall records, Park City has already reached its annual average, and Big Sky and Taos Ski Valley have been receiving a steady stream of fresh powder. Whether you seek powder stashes off double blacks or prefer to cruise down fresh-groomed blues, winter’s generosity has made spring the perfect time to spend a week in the snow and the sun. Each of our mountain destinations boast a thriving après scene with plenty of options to mingle, dine, drink, soak and even dance, ensuring that what happens after your “last run” is as memorable as your first.

2. For The Beach Bum

For some, Spring Break is synonymous with the beach. And if that’s your preference, we’ve got three beach destinations ready for you to dive into. Island hop in South Carolina at our collection of Sea Islands, making your way from the capital of southern-charm, Beaufort, to the pristine beaches of Fripp Island. For a more laid-back vibe, without the spring break crowds, head to Tybee Island, right off the coast of Georgia. Or travel to the Gulf of Florida to Cape San Blas for a loving dose of local culture and hospitality. Last year’s Hurricane Michael hit the Cape hard, but its resilient community has worked tirelessly to restore and are enthusiastically inviting visitors back to enjoy their beloved coast with travelers.

3. For The Nature Lover

For others, Spring Break is all about the rejuvenation that comes with a peaceful and secluded escape, somewhere in nature. Bordering the Great Smoky Mountains, our darling Tennessee cabins and timber-homes put nothing between you and the Blue Ridge Mountains, but the wooden walls of your personal haven. For a different breath of mountain air, head to California’s Mammoth Lakes,, a leisurely drive from Yosemite National Park. With five alpine lakes, a plethora of trails, and its own geothermal springs, you won’t have to go far in Mammoth Lakes to feel like you’ve found your own private national park.

4. For The Festival Goer

If desert warmth, cool blue pools, swaying palms, and an oasis of musical performances interests you then book a trip to Palm Springs, California, for two back to back festivals: Coachella and Stagecoach. The weather here is divine, the landscapes surreal, and the people are as colorful as you’d hope. And of course, each of our distinct private homes provides the perfect VIP setting for lounging by the pool and refreshing in-between headliners. For a more family-friendly trip head to Savannah, Georgia for their annual St. Paddy’s Day Festival, one of the largest in the United States. After a day of Celtic celebration return to one of our oceanfront homes at Tybee Island, or as the local’s know it, “Savannah’s Favorite Beach.”

5. For the Foodie

Looking to avoid the crowds of a big city, but still want to discover the sights, tastes, and smells of a buzzing town? We’ve got a collection of vibrant cities ready for you to explore. You know Park City for the Sundance Film Festival and the Winter Olympics, but did you know it has a rich mining history that you can experience on a walk down it’s quaint Main Street? With over 100 restaurants, many award-winning, Park City is also an unsuspecting foodie’s dream. For more mountain-town adventures pay a visit to Ketchum, right in the heart of Sun Valley, Idaho . We promise that after just one trip you’ll fall in love with its mountain charm whether via its friendly faces, palatable cuisine, or remarkable mountain access. Or venture to Savannah, Georgia’s first city, where its antebellum architecture, cobblestoned squares, and storybook parks can easily fill up a week’s worth of wandering.
