Link Friday: The 2016 Spring Break Travel Edition

Posted on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 by Kate

It feels a little early to say we’re out of the woods on another winter, but it’s been feeling pretty spring-like, so this week, we’re talking spring break travel.

  • Spring means spring break, and if you want to travel, but don’t want to pay the outrageous rates that come along with it, check out this article about the cheapest places to travel and when during this season.
  • Air travel is expected to hit a record 140 million passengers this spring, thanks to more reasonable fares. In return, airlines are bringing out bigger, newer jets and hiring more employees to meet the demand.
  • While spring break used to mean hitting a beach with thousands of your closest college friends, it seems kids these days (yeah, I’m old enough to say that) are looking for a more worldly experience – often heading to Europe or more culturally complex cities in the U.S.
  • In fact, Americans in general seem to be looking beyond their own borders when it comes to where they’re headed this spring, with destinations like Canada, South Africa, India and China rounding out the top ten most popular spots.
