7 Travel Spots That Avoid Spring Break
NEW YORK (MainStreet) -- You didn't make it through a long, gray winter just to spend your spring break avoiding a can-strewn hotel pool and cleaning a co-ed's vomit off your rental car.
Much like hurricanes, brush fires, blizzards and various other seasonal anomalies, spring break is best accepted as an unfortunate reality at this time of year for travelers whose best beer-bong building days are behind them. As with any destructive force of nature, the best way to approach spring break as a traveler is to avoid it as best as possible.
That's going to be a bit tougher this year. The American Express(AXP) Spending and Savings Tracker found that 61% of Americans plan to spend more on travel overall this year. About half of those big spenders will be hitting domestic hot spots, while 22% will be heading abroad and another 20% will be taking to the seas on the giant floating all-inclusive resorts that call themselves cruise ships.
