Taking a trip over spring vacation is a rite of passage for many college students. In today’s economic climate, however, those lavish trips to warm and sunny climates that were once the norm may not be as financially possible as they once were. That means that it’s necessary to get a bit creative in order to come up with some fun but more budget conscious trip ideas. These suggestions are definitely off the beaten path, so you’re not likely to find huge crowds at these places, and even if you decide to do an adventure type of trip, you may be able to get accommodations and transportation at the last minute without any problem.
