3 Awesome Spring Break Destinations

Florida

Florida is any sun-seeker's top choice for a spring break vacation with miles of powder white beaches and perfect mid-70s temperatures even in March. Panama City Beach is arguably the hottest place to spend your spring break, with about half a million visitors a year. For those who want to go wild, Daytona Beach combines day-time adrenaline sports like race car driving with all-night club hopping. And for those who prefer to keep it classy, head to South Beach for toned-down uber-trendy clubs.

Myrtle Beach, SC

Miles and miles of pristine coastline lapped by the Atlantic Ocean combined with more mini-golf courses per square mile than anywhere else on earth make Myrtle Beach a paradise for your spring break. This long-time spring break favorite was also voted the number one 2014 destination on TripAdvisor. If you ever manage to drag yourself away from the glorious sun-soaked beaches you'll immediately be bathed in southern style hospitality as you flit from local microbreweries to seafood buffets and even late-night clubs.

Las Vegas, NV

Las Vegas is the perfect place to let your hair down and get your party on. The great thing about Vegas is that it has something for everyone, no matter what your budget. If you're looking for luxury, Vegas will spoil you with exclusive suites and world-class shows at every turn. But even if you're on a shoe-string budget you can tour famous Vegas landmarks like the mini Eiffel Tower, fountains at the Bellagio, and MGM Lion.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
