  8.  
    1. New Orleans, Louisiana — Venture to the South this spring break to a city known for its unparalleled liveliness and culture. Cafe Du Monde’s world-famous beignets will have you instantly forgetting all the stress from school in just one bite!
    2. Puerto Rico — A vacation to Puerto Rico is the perfect spring break destination for you. It’s safe to say that it’s a good distance away from campus, making it great if you want to be as far from UC Berkeley as possible. Most importantly, you’ll be too captivated by the beautiful sights and culture to even concern yourself with issues like bringing along your reader or finishing that problem set.
    3. Honolulu, Hawaii — Book a trip to paradise because you deserve nothing less. After all those late nights spent studying, treat yourself to a week full of relaxation as you lounge on the beautiful and sunny beaches of Hawaii every single day.
    4. Las Vegas, Nevada — Take a little road trip to Sin City this March. Enjoy the nightlife, treat yourself to a trendy restaurant reservation or purchase tickets to a show that interests you. The possibilities are endless — especially for those who are looking to spend their time somewhere other than the beach.
