[Not Your Mama's] Spring Break

We know the beach is always a solid choice, but we want you to have a different kind of wild time on Spring Break this year. Get weird with one (or all) of these options for a spring fling with adventure!

1. Champing

You've heard of glamping, but 2017 is all about champing! Rest your head on holy ground by spending the night in a historic chapel, and let the angels sing you to sleep. Plus, is there anything more beautiful than stained glass?

2. Bookstore Hopping

Spring break with Hawthorne, Tolkien, and Dostoyevsky? Why not? Check out Powell's in Portland, City Lights in San Fran, and The Last Bookstore in LA for a literary hop down the West Coast.

3. Animal Conservation Visits

Ditch your drinking buddies and make a furry (or scaly) friend instead. Visit alpacas in Peru, iguanas at the Galapagos Conservancy, and elephants in Kenya for a tour de force through the circle of life. 

4. Haute Hotels

The more random the sleeping quarters, the better! We're jonesing to hit up TuboHotel in Mexico, Jumbo Stay airplane hostel in Sweden, and Desert Cave Hotel in Australia. 

5. Dated Theme Park Hopping

Most people head to Florida for Disney World or Universal's Islands of Adventure, but not you! You're scoring tickets to Dinosaur World in Plant City, Presidents Hall of Fame in Clermont, and Gatorland in Orlando for a vacation as weird as the Sunshine State itself.
