Spring break activities are not restricted to costly travel vacations. There are plenty of local ways to pass the time.

When students think of spring break, they often imagine expansive road trips to a distant state or long airplane flights to exotic countries. However, leaving the comfort of one’s home does not have to be the only option to enjoy this week of no school. Whether one is looking to spend moments alone or with friends, the GH Falcon compiled a list of activities to enjoy locally over spring break!

Brunch
Brunch is the perfect way to start a lazy break day. One can wake up late and take a quick trip to one of the numerous cafes and restaurants in the area. For those who are unsure of where to go, First Watch is a highly rated brunch destination. The restaurant offers traditional brunch options, such as pancakes, waffles and omelets, as well as more innovative takes, such as their elevated egg sandwich and skillet hashes. A newer addition to the Triangle’s selection of brunch locations is The Flying Biscuit Cafe. The cafe, well known for its chicken and waffles, provides brunch foods for affordable prices.

Fred G. Bond Metro Park is a popular destination for outdoor activities, including picnics.

Movie at a theater
While students can enjoy their favorite shows and movies on streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, one can enhance the experience by viewing the latest movies in-theater. “Dune: Part Two” and “Kung Fu Panda 4” are two of the most recent movies one can watch in theaters. Some popular theaters in the area include B&B Theatre in Park West Village and Paragon Theaters at Fenton. Shopping and restaurant options surround both theaters for activities to enjoy before or after the movie.

Picnic
As spring kicks into full swing, the warm weather and flowering vegetation make for the perfect picnic backdrop. A picnic is a great chance to sit back and enjoy the scenery. One can pack a homemade lunch or buy a meal to-go. A sandwich from Panera or bowl from Chipotle are affordable and easy food options. Fred G. Bond Metro Park provides spacious grassy areas, making it perfect for a relaxing picnic.

Crafts or building sets can be a great rainy-day activity. (Y-Nhu Do)

Crafts
If rain or chillier temperatures deter one from leaving the house, crafts can help to pass the time. One can make a quick stop at Hobby Lobby or Michael’s to pick up some supplies and spend hours knitting a scarf, crafting jewelry or making keychains. One can also pick up a Lego set or puzzle to build a rewarding piece with friends and family.

Spring break is an opportunity to spend time taking care of oneself after stressing over tests and assignments for months. Whether one is enjoying a brunch or building a Lego set, there is no shortage of things to do locally.
