Spring Break Alternatives

With all of the hoopla in the news, people are cancelling their spring break plans. Mine were also cancelled so I was thinking about where I can get away to after this hard winter. I feel like I’ve been cold for 3 months and the possibility of staying in Denver wasn’t on my list. If you are like me, here are some of the places I came up with for spring break. Whether you want to drive or fly, my thought was “where would I not mind having to stay for an extra 2 weeks if I had to.”

Let’s start with my favorite
