Spring Break is a glorious time for college students. The weather is just beginning to get warm again, it marks the halfway point of the semester and it’s a full 9 days without classes. While this leaves plenty of time for sleeping in and catching up with friends and family from home, it also leaves plenty of time to go on a romantic date!

There are endless possibilities with so much free time and nice weather, here are just some ideas!

Hike through the Woods
With the warm weather beginning to emerge, early spring is the best time to stroll through the woods. It’s even better if you pack a picnic for you and your lover to share. You might even see some trees and flowers begin to bloom! Remember rain boots though, for spring showers may make the wilderness muddy.

Clear spring nights are the perfect opportunity for stargazing. Grab a blanket, hot chocolate and your date and you’ve got the perfect night ahead of you. Too cold to venture outside? Fear not, simply set up your blankets in front of a window and turn out all of the lights in your house. You get the same romantic effect minus the potential frostbite.

Road Trip
Even if it’s just to drive around aimlessly for the day, there’s something wonderful about setting off on an adventure with the windows down, and the sun shining. With no classes or commitments for a week, Spring Break is the perfect time to grab your boyfriend or girlfriend and set off on an adventure! Remember to take a camera to document all of the silly and wonderful memories you make!

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day
St. Patrick’s Day happens to occur during the week of Spring Break. Take advantage of this and go all out! Even if you’re not Irish, wear green, make a green-themed feast and watch a parade, better yet, go out and watch a local parade if possible. There’s nothing more fun than being in a huge crowd  with a loud and exciting environment.
