It’s that time we’ve all been waiting for! Spring break season is finally here. Many students may be unsure of what they want to do for spring break, so this article gives the top three suggestions for activities to do during the break. Before the list, here’s a bit of what a few students at Saint Leo University will be doing with their time:
Harrison, a sophomore, biology major, plans to head back home to Port St. Lucie to chill with friends and go to the beach. Meanwhile, senior Mckenzie Wallace will be busy working as a teaching intern as a requirement for her elementary education major. Sophomore and computer science major Tracey Macleavy will be heading home to Jamaica this spring break to participate in annual University of the West Indies Carnival. Aaliyah Effs, a freshman majoring in criminal justice, plans to chill here on campus. Have no plans? No problem! In lieu of this extended vacation, here is a list of top three things to do during Spring Break.
In the number three spot, check out new movies.
Starting March 9 to March 18, a lot of movies will be premiering. From historical dramas to even action-adventure films, here is a list of some featured films:
Dramedy-“Love, Simon,” a movie about a 17-year-old boy who has fallen in love with an anonymous classmate online. Meanwhile, he has been keeping his sexuality a secret from his family and friends.
Horror-“The Strangers: Prey at Night”: three masked teens target a family in their mobile home park.
Adult Fiction/Science Fantasy-Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time”: Accompanied by three magical creatures, a young girl embarks on an out-of-this-world journey to rescue her father.
Historical dramedy -“The Death of Stalin”: A satirical comedy, about the chain of events that took place amongst the U.S. and Russian political body after the death of Joseph Stalin.
Action-adventure-“Tomb Raider”: This movie is modeled after the action-adventure game with the same title. In the film, a missing adventurer’s daughter faces a sequence of challenges as she finds herself on the island her father disappeared on.
A cheaper alternative to going to the theaters would be to catch up on some series or even starting a new one.
Number two on the list is to attend an event or go site seeing. From the 12th to the 16th of March, there will be an array of exciting events. One, along with her/his significant other or friends, can simply full up the tank and plan to road trip to another major city. Top cities to road trip to include Orlando, Key West, Fort Lauderdale and not to mention Miami. Upcoming events, such as Gasparilla International Film Festival, the UniverSoul Circus or even a sporting game, are a must. Places to site see are endless; some include The Everglades National Park, Florida Caverns State Park, Crystal River and more.
The number one thing to do is to head to the beach. What is spring break without a beach trip? According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the state of Florida has over 500 beaches. A few of the top beaches include Clearwater Beach, Siesta Beach and Gulf Islands National Seashore, according to 10best.com. Or if those are too out of the way, head on down to Fort de Soto.
For the very adventurous ones, some honorable mentions include a trip to Brazil, the Bahamas or even Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Travel according to one’s budget. It’s one week, so be smart and stay safe!
