Tired of school? Excited for spring break? Our sQoolink mentor, Nick Sohn from the University of Southern California, talks about popular destinations to visit for spring break. With so many options, it is hard to decide the ideal place to visit. Do not worry. Spring break is what you make of it. Make sure you relax, sit back, and enjoy the week!


Spring break is a time for relaxation and enjoyment. After endless nights studying and grinding through papers, every student sure deserves a break. The big question is where should I go? While there are several conventional and popular destinations, there are multiple factors into play: price, environment, culture, and intention. With that let’s hope everyone gets the relaxing break they need!

Depending on where you study, there are different hotspots for spring break. If you are studying in the UK, Amsterdam and France tend to be popular destinations. In the US, Cancun and Cabo are common places. These places are attractive for their nightlife and college vibe. It may also be cheaper due to proximity. However, if this isn’t just what you are looking for, do not worry. There is much to do and explore outside of these hotspots.

If you are looking for a cultural experience, perhaps look into places outside of popular destinations. Maybe organize a backpacking trip in Peru or visit Northern Canada. Immersing yourself in culture is a great way to both learn and relax. If you are still new to the culture of the US or wherever you study, organize a trip within the country. San Francisco, New York, Boston, and Los Angeles are just some of many cities with rich history and culture. Explore your interests and explore the country!

Spring break is what you make of it. If you don’t feel the need to travel, don’t. Chances are you haven’t fully explored your own city. Take the week to unwind from the stress of school or catch up on school. Hope this helps!
