Do not let the cold weather stop you from having a hot spring break. When most people think of spring break, sunny, warm weather comes to mind. Here’s some ways to have a great time, even if you’re not on the set of MTV’s Spring Break.

Day Trips

If you plan on working over spring break, treat yourself to at least one day off or take some time over the weekend.

If you want to find some great buys over spring break, drive out to Lancaster and visit the Rockvale Square Outlets. There are over 100 stores, including the Nike Factory Store, Rue 21, Champion Active Wear, and the Sony Factory Outlet. If Lancaster isn’t in the right direction, The Crossings Factory Stores in Tannersville, Pa., near the Pocanos, is another option. Outlet stores here include Pacific Sunwear, Reebok, DKNY Jeans, ECKO, GAP, and J.Crew.

Skiing, snowboarding or tubing are always options. There are many local snow resorts that offer student discount rates. At Blue Mountain, students can ski or snowboard for just $32 during the week or $34 on the weekend. If you plan on going with friends, Jack Frost and Big Boulder’s “Rental Express” offers online specials.

If you’re 21, the casinos in Atlantic City are the place to be. The Borgata is ACs newest hot spot. Stay the weekend and enjoy over 30 games, 12 dining facilities, four bars, a comedy club and a music box. A night’s stay starts at $129. The Borgata also has a spa, salon and pool.
