If you’re looking to avoid swarmed beaches or overcrowded resorts, read on to discover this Global Transportation company’s list of five special Spring Break destinations.San Francisco, CA

Known for its hilly landscape, year-round fog, iconic Golden-Gate Bridge, cable cars and colorful Victorian-style houses, San Francisco makes for a fantastic vacation destination! It’s definitely an unusual Spring Break destination, and would make for an awesome and unique Spring Break. San Francisco draws people of all different backgrounds. It’s the perfect for those who have an eye for edgy art, a taste for imaginative cuisine and a zeal for adventure. The city boasts jaw-dropping sights, world-class cuisine, cozy cafes and plenty of booming nightlife venues — there's no shortage of ways to stay busy here. Spend an hour or two chilling out alongside sea lions on the bay, admiring the views of the city from Twin Peaks, or strolling along the Marina. Explore gorgeous Victorian-style houses, and enjoy a ride on a cable car for the perfect San Francisco experience. Get a feel for small-town charm in a large city while you explore museums and parks! Follow the crowds to the touristy Fisherman's Wharf area (which offers spectacular views of Alcatraz) before heading along the bay to the Presidio for a glimpse of the famous Golden Gate Bridge. But don't forget to save time for the Mission district, The Haight and The Castro for exposure to all of the different varieties of the San Francisco lifestyle!

Victoria, BC 

There are all different kinds of island experiences, and Victoria will definitely be a unique island experience! While most islands typically are thought of as accompanied by a tropical beach, Vancouver Island, just off the Pacific Coast of Canada is an incredible Spring Break vacation destination. Victoria is the largest city on this not-so-tropical but still enchanting island. The picturesque provincial capital of British Columbia is full of quaint and lively shops and restaurants. You can also visit many excellent museums in Victoria, and, obviously, the Victorian architecture is worth seeing. With a mild climate and so many trails and parks – including sprawling, amusement filled Beacon Hill Park – the Capital of British Columbia is a great destination for outdoor activities. Hike, bike, and explore the awesome outdoors that Canada is known for.  Get out of Victoria for a day trip or two to explore the natural beauty and charm of the rest of Vancouver Island. Take a bus from Victoria to Nanaimo or Tofino, or even cycle around the island if that’s more your speed. If you want to get some on-water experiences, be sure to take the ferry that promises whale sightings! If you’re bringing your kids, they are sure to love the views.

Memphis, TN 

If you’re a music lover, you should definitely spend your Spring Break in Memphis to take in live blues – and tour Graceland. Beale Street has been officially declared “Home of the Blues” by Congress, so you know it’s the ideal place to simply wander down the street and stop in any club that catches your attention. You’ll be treated to a local blues show that you won’t forget. To really make it a special Spring Break, tour Graceland Mansion to see where Elvis lived and visit the famous Jungle Room! Before you leave Memphis, be sure to eat some incredibly delicious Memphis-style barbecue. Memphis-style BBQ is distinct from other styles, and you can taste it in establishments all over town. Regardless of where you stay in Memphis, you’re sure to have a barbecue joint nearby. Explore the city and enjoy a culinary experience you won’t find anywhere else!

New York City, NY 

There’s never a bad time to visit the City that Never Sleeps. There will always be something good going on in New York City. New York City is known for so many awesome things for you to explore- incredible museums (definitely visit the Metropolitan or the Guggenheim), Central Park, the High Line, and Battery Park, shows on Broadway or off Broadway, incredible and interesting food varieties (Little Italy, Chinatown, etc.). This is New York, so you can sample any type of cuisine imaginable. You can explore so much in New York City- Greenwich Village, Harlem, SoHo, Brooklyn, and many other neighborhoods will offer plenty of interesting sights, restaurants, bars, shopping, and historical areas! Whatever you want to see, from the Statue of Liberty to the Empire State Building, you’re sure to have a blast in this incredible city.

Phuket, Thailand

If you really want the beach getaway but want it to be a little more unique, get out of this hemisphere and head over to Phuket, Thailand. This rain forested, mountainous island in the Andaman Sea has some of Thailand’s most popular beaches, mostly situated along the clear waters of the western shore. The island is home to many high-end seaside resorts, spas, and restaurants. The island is also home to some awesome old shophouses and busy markets. While this is definitely a long flight for a week-long vacay, it’s worth the visit. Try to add on a few extra days to make it truly worth the journey. What you’ll spend in flights you’ll more than get back in affordable food and accommodation. Explore ornate temples, bustling night markets and definitely make the trip over to the neighboring Phi Phi Island for some incredible beaches. Phuket is known for having a prominent nightlife scene, but hey, if you do end up having one too many drinks, treat yourself to an inexpensive massage first thing the next morning!
