We understand what it’s like when the winter blues catch up with you.We often catch ourselves daydreaming about crystal blue waters and no sound at all except for the ocean waves breaking at the shoreline.

Sunshine and warm weather is mentally and physically reviving. After a long winter our bodies begin to crave it. If you’re booking a trip this spring, we’ve rounded up the best places to vacation in the country that won’t break the bank.

Happy Spring Break 2018, now get to planning.

1. Manhattan Beach, California

We love this Los Angeles based beach because it embodies all the beauty of Southern California without the pretentiousness of Santa Monica or Venice Beach. This beach is home to surf-friendly waves, local eateries and places to shop, and relaxed Cali vibes. You’ll never be disappointed here when you go on a long run, a bike ride, or simply snooze on the sand.

2. Clearwater Beach, Florida

Clearwater Beach in Florida is arguably one of the most entertaining beaches to spend your week. Enjoy swimming or surfing for hours in the warm gulf stream, kayaking, parasailing, and partaking in dolphin-watching cruises.

If you’re looking for something with a flaring social scene, entertain yourself at Main Beach parties, while catching performances at Pier 60 from fire eaters, musicians, and artisans.

3. Florida Keys, Florida

It’s no wonder Fool’s Gold was filmed off these gorgeous islands. The Florida Keys are home to white beaches, clear blue water, and thousands of tropical fish, making it a surreal snorkeling and diving experience. If you’re more of a land (or air) lover, go hiking or sky diving to enjoy gorgeous views of the coast.

Visit Calusa Beach on the Gulf side of the park to enjoy friendly shallow waters and nature trails that wind through both sides of the park.  

4. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

The primary draws to Myrtle Beach are clean beaches and southern hospitality. Myrtle Beach is one of the most popular East Coast destinations for families and spring breakers alike. The waves in South Carolina are mild, and they play along natural light brown sand. Spend your spring break here if you’re interested in water skiing, jet skiing, and deep sea fishing.

5. The Big Island, Hawaii

The Big Island is often overlooked in favor of its relatively smaller sibli…er, islands. To say this island is beautiful would be an understatement, and would fall short of its true beauty. It’s a geographic anomaly, boasting green and black sand beaches, snow-covered peaks, lush rainforests, and an active fire-spitting volcano. While you’re there, hit the trails, get lost in colors you’ve never seen, and be sure to take in all the beauty of Hawaii’s largest (but most underrated) island.   

You’ve been working hard all of winter, and you clearly deserve the perfect spring break vacation. Protect your eyes with a pair of Pugs sunglasses and avoid that sunburn with one of our Pugs hats.

Everything you’ve been looking for in a vacation is just a flight away. What are you waiting for?
