Spring break is March 15-22, and many students enjoy this week-long break in the spring semester as a preview of the upcoming summer. Whether you’re attending SXSW, going to the beach, leaving the country, or staying in Austin, this spring break will be enjoyable for everyone


If you don’t know how to occupy your time over break, here are some suggestions.

  1. The beach is only a short three hour drive from here, and a great destination for spring break fun.
  2. SXSW is happening over spring break from March 11-17, giving you a few days to see performers from across the world.
  3. Downtown Austin has many attractions, like the farmers market, Zilker Park, Second Street shopping, 360 bridge, or Congress Avenue and is a short distance from home.
  4. Getting out of the house is easier than you think with state parks and outside attractions. You could hike Mount Bonnell, swim at Barton Creek or paddle board on Lake Travis.
