Set a Budget

Before you start jumping into the details of the “where” and “when,” it’s more important to establish the “how.” Each person that you’re traveling with will have a budget in mind. Get the gang together and talk about the financial details before you begin planning. This makes it easier to accommodate everyone and plan activities that your entire group loves and can afford. Plus, by setting a budget early on in the planning process, it’s a lot easier to decide how many days away will fit into your party’s financial plans.

Make a Wish List

You may think that wish lists are just for kids. There’s no better time to tap into your inner child and figure out what’s going to make this vacation one for the books.  Adult spring break is a now a thing!  With your travel buddies, decide on a few things that everyone wants to do. For example, maybe you have your heart set on golfing the day away while another friend wants to lounge poolside. It’s okay to want different things from your spring break getaway. In fact, it’s ideal; now to find a place that will accommodate all of your needs.

Choose Your Resort

You’ve figured out how much everyone can afford and you’ve decided on a few things that everyone wants to do. Now, it’s time to start shopping for the perfect getaway location. Choosing a hotel or resort is the most crucial part of your planning process. If you choose a hotel that doesn’t have much to offer, your relaxation may be compromised. Plus, they may not have much to do nearby. Instead, you need a place where you have plenty of activities and the amenities necessary to relax. Resorts typically have more to offer than hotels. With on-site spas, restaurants, and pools, there’s something for everyone. Most also have plenty of activities either on the premises or close by to ensure that guests have lots to do without even getting back in a vehicle
