Only an hour-and-a-half away, Memphis is the perfect spur-of-the-moment destination for Spring Break. Take a walk on Beale Street or attend one of the three Memphis Grizzlies home basketball games at the FedEx Forum. There is also the annual Silky O’Sullivan’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade to attend this Saturday!

Atlanta is a short five-hour drive and is also a big city to explore. Their Aquarium, Six Flags and countless museums are a must-see. You can also attend an Atlanta Hawks game at the Phillips Arena. With so much to do, you can’t get bored in Atlanta this Spring Break .


A city filled with so much live music, an awesome nightlife, and Southern charm, there is never a bad time to visit Nashville. However, Music City Irish Fest is going on until March 17, so next week may not be the worst time to spend some time in Music City, U.S.A.

New Orleans

New Orleans is a city filled with so much culture, activities and nightlife; it has all you need for a fun-filled Spring Break. Bourbon Street, the French Quarter and Jackson Square are only just a few incredible places to tour while staying in one of the coolest cities in America. At the moment, New Orleans is also hosting the Buku Music and Arts Festival the first weekend of the break, making it a perfect time to go! Also, parades will be in full swing for the week of St. Patrick’s Day.
