If you are tired of going to the beach for Spring Break or being a typical college student going to PCB and Gulf Shores isn’t your style, here are someplaces to go for Spring Break that might tickle your fancy! (Another plus is you can road trip to all of them!)
From Portland to Bend to Medford there are all kinds of places to see in Oregon. Known for its various outdoor activities, Oregon is the perfect Spring Break destination to let your adventurous spirit run wild! Here are some activities that I found would be fun in the Spring!
- Crater Lake Zipline – Located in the Crater Lake National Park
- Multnomah Falls – Located near Portland, Oregon
- Hot Air Balloon over Willamette Valley – Located outside of Portland in Newberg. You also have the option to do a wine tour following the catered brunch if you would like.
- Silver Falls State Park and stay in the little town of Silverton where they have cute shops, fishing, Mt. Angel Abbey, and other fun adventures.
- Explore the Volcanoes of Oregon and stay in the small town of Sisters.

If you like to ski I hear that the places to go aren’t the obvious places like Breckenridge, CO. So I have listed out some “awesome” places to ski according to my ski loving people. (Personally I have never enjoyed the cold so I had to outsource to the experienced skier in my life.) But if you’re wanting to ski greens or blacks most of these places have you covered!
- Taos, New Mexico – Pretty average for and made for beginners, very affordable!
- Wolf Creek, CO – Bette than average
- Arapahoe Basin – “Not for beginners this place is for experts more than starting out.” – Ryder
- Telluride – I hear there is a great restaurant at the top of the mountain too!
- Jackson Hole
- Vail, CO
- The Canyons – Park City, UT
Whatever you decide to do just remember that you will only have as much fun as you allow yourself to have. Whether you go on a huge trip with friends or a weekend trip to a town 2 hours away, you always have the ability to have a good time, it just depends on your attitude! Happy trip planning!
