Spring break is a much anticipated time for high school and college students. Many students enjoy spending time with their friends and families. With a week away from school and responsibility, there are many fun activities students can choose from in the Upstate.

For starters, drive-in movies are a great way to have a fun time for a relatively small cost and make it feel like the 70s and 80s again. With a small trek south to Greenwood, moviegoers can enjoy a night at the Auto Drive-In. Although it takes a little over an hour to get there, the memories you can make at a drive-in is definitely worth it.

Although movies can be fun, being outside when temperatures are perfect is another great choice for any spring breaker. Picnics, hiking, and biking are all great ways to stay active and still enjoy yourself. Jones Gap State Park, Table Rock, and Caesar’s Head are all great places within 45 mins. to an hour of Greenville and the surrounding suburbs.

A staple of many spring breaks is the first trip of the year to any nearby lakes. Whether choosing between Jocassee, Keowee, or Hartwell, there are plenty of fun activities at each lake. From fishing to jet skiing, and wakeboarding to swimming, or simply cruising on the boat, the lake is a favorite for many in the spring.

Lastly, a trip to the zoo can be entertaining for all ages, and it’s likely the closest option for someone wanting a day activity.  The Greenville Zoo, positioned in the heart of downtown adjacent to Cleveland Park, has many intriguing exhibits of all types of animals. With a large playground and food options inside the park, the zoo provides entertainment for hours at a fair price.

Spring break is a breath of fresh air after the cold winter and school months, and it should definitely be spent doing fun activities with friends and family. As spring break ends, kids can look forward in excitement to doing the rest of these activities in the coming summer.
