Spring is in the air, so it’s time to start planning your spring break getaway! Whether you’re a college student looking to let loose or a family searching for a fun-filled vacation, planning a spring trip can be both exciting and overwhelming.
Over the years, I managed to turn planning a trip into a fun, relaxed activity, and in this article, I am sharing my tips for planning a spring break trip.
From choosing the perfect destination to packing like a pro, I’ve got you covered. This guide will provide you with all the information you need to have a fantastic spring break trip. So, get ready to say goodbye to winter and hello to warmer weather with our essential spring travel tips!
The weather can be moody
Spring weather means a day can start with rain and end up in sun, or can start with warm temperatures and end up snowing (in some destinations, not everywhere, obviously.)

Spring weather can be unpredictable, so be prepared for changes in temperature and precipitation. Tip: pack clothing that can be layered and be sure to check the local weather forecast before you go. Be prepared for rain – I usually have a compact umbrella or waterproof clothes and shoes.

Here I would also add that crowds can be found throughout the year in many places. Knowing that you can encounter them, expecting them, will reduce the anxiety.
When I visited the Louvre/Musee d’Orsay in Paris, even though it was March, I knew that they won’t be empty. These museums are never empty. But expecting them to be crowded, helped me. I didn’t let that stand in the way of enjoying my visit.
On another side, at the Versailles Palace, there was NO line. It was indeed great to be able to enter as we got there – we didn’t buy any tickets online.
