School Vacation on a Budget
Spring break is rolling around, and those pictures of the beaches in Cancun sure do look enticing. The only problem is that you don’t have the executive budget to make it happen. Ah, well… maybe next year. In the meanwhile, you’ve got perfectly good vacation time to use. Here are some ways to make it a unique and fun experience that doesn’t break the bank.
Check out your home town. Sure, you’ve seen it every day, but have you really seen it? Go exploring and look at it with new eyes. How many things have you passed without ever noticing them? You’d be surprised at all the forgotten corners you may have missed.
Go camping. Yes, there’s a chance it might be chilly out, but so what? Pack the appropriate gear and go for it. You’ll get a chance to see nature the way you normally don’t, and if all else fails you’ll have a great story to tell.
Head North. Spring break is when everyone heads south. Break the trend and head in the opposite direction. Many northern areas offer steep discounts during the off-season, and you’ll get to see the sights without the crowds.
It might be tempting to follow the trends when it comes to spring vacation, but a little out-of-the-box thinking can lead you to a unique experience that you just can’t duplicate at a cookie-cutter resort. And if it lets you keep more of your hard-earned money in your pocket, so much the better.
