While spring break has become known as a time for college students to escape from academia for a week of wild partying and antics, several new spring break travel trends are gaining widespread popularity.
One trend is adventure travel, which includes traveling to one of many nature-oriented destinations and participating in activities like hiking, scuba diving, rock climbing and multi-sport tours. Popular destinations for adventure travel are Colorado and Alaska in the U.S. and many other international locations like Egypt and China. Another spring break travel trend is what is becoming known as alternative spring break--a community service-oriented spring break trip. In the last few years many students have opted to travel to New Orleans to participate in the Hurricane Katrina clean-up or to other international cities in need. Lastly, experimental travel that includes trips centered on cultural activities like expeditions, wildlife tours and culinary tours are also becoming popular.
