Students are excited to travel in the United States and abroad this spring break.
Sarah Anderson of University Travel said the most popular destination this year is Cancun, Mexico.
“The price is very good,” she said, “Most prices are inclusive, so all of the meals and drinks are already paid for.”
Other popular destinations are Jamaica, Mexico’s west coast and the Bahamas.
She said there has been a decrease in numbers of travelers this year, but it is only slightly lower than years past.
Molly Morris, a Virginia Tech sophomore, is taking a tour of the South with friends for her spring break for a different type of adventure.
“I’m excited because I get to go to six states I’ve never been to before,” she said.
The trip will take her from Staunton, Va., through several cities such as Birmingham, Little Rock, Louisville and others.
The estimated total driving time, according to Google maps, will be 24 hours over the entire break.
Tech student Bitty Haydu is going to Disney World with her family.
“Now just seems like the perfect time,” she said.
“I have a lot of little siblings and they’ll be old enough to remember it. And it’s Disney World!
That’s always fun no matter how old you are.”
