Unique Spring Break Destinations for 2018

By Jackie Dreyer

A mere couple of months into the year, and we don't know about you, but we're already planning our next big getaway. With Spring Break on the horizon—from early March through late April, depending on location—it's time you give yourself a welcomed break and jet off to a unique destination that's sure to make for your most-liked Instagram photo yet.

Our Top Five Choices

We know you probably think Spring Break is synonymous with crowded beaches, bikinis, and beers, but we'd like to present you with a few fun alternatives. From coast to coast—and even dipping down to Mexico, these five properties are out top choices for a one-of-a-kind of springtime getaway.

1. Texas

Come springtime, as the blue bonnets begin to bloom and festival season falls upon us (including the well-known South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival, Texas turns into a veritable hotspot for cultural activities and nature-based adventures. At just an hour from Austin, this tree house rental puts you at the perfect distance from the city and right in the heart of the New Braunfels' countryside, nestled along the Guadalupe River and just 20 minutes from Canyon Lake.

2. Florida

Swimming in natural springs, kayaking the state's waterways, and feeling the warm rays of the "Sunshine State" brush your skin are only three of the best springtime activities in Florida. Instead of images of Daytona Beach and Panama City Beach floating through your dreams, however, you should start imagining a secluded escape to Siesta Key.

This deluxe accommodation is the perfect place for a luxurious and romantic Spring Break, complete with a private pool to take a dip in between sunbathing sessions. There's even a private walkway that leads guests right down to the white sand beaches and the calming water of the Atlantic Ocean!

3. North Carolina

Whether you're walking among the wildflowers, cycling around the area's bike trails, or paddleboarding along the shore of one of the state's numerous beaches, a relaxing East Coast Spring Break is a breeze in North Carolina.

There's no better place than this waterfront cottage rental on North Topsail Beach for a trip that even the family dog can come along on. For the ultimate in luxury, you can even hire a private chef to prepare you meals in the gourmet kitchen all trip long.

4. California

California has literally got it all—from beautiful beaches and State and National Parks to stunning desert landscapes and mountainous terrain. With a plethora of outdoor activities to take advantage of, you won't miss for a second the overpriced cocktails and poor music choices of any establishment on the main drag of a major city.

Opt, instead, for one of these off-the-grid glamping pods in the Mojave Desert in California, where you can rent off-road vehicles to best explore the desert that surrounds you. At night, you'll rest peacefully, with the stars keeping the evening pleasantly aglow, from the comfort of a luxurious queen-size bed.

5. Mexico

"Go big or go home" seems to be the age-old Spring Break motto down in Mexico, but we're not taking you to all-you-can-drink Cancun this spring. We'll do you one better—with this luxury tree house in Tulum, Mexico. With 360° views of the jungle and the ocean, in addition to proximity to the area's famous Mayan ruins, you'll get fun, flora, sand, sun, waves, and a dose of culture at this deluxe glamping site.

No matter where you stay this spring, whether it be a beachfront villa or a secluded tree house, try Glamping Hub on for size and stay unique!
