If you’ve got today off from class, then good for you. I’m glad you’re taking this opportunity to watch reality TV marathons and binge eat 100 Calorie Packs. There’s no shame in that. But next time you’ve got an extended weekend, perhaps you should round up your besties and hit the road.
Austin is oh-so trendy (in a good way) and boasts delicious culinary treats. How can you say no to a making s’mores right in a restaurant? Hit up Boston if you’re in the Northeast. From potential celeb sightings to swank clubs, Beantown’s got it all. If you’re feeling stuck in the Midwest, head to Minneapolis to take in some cosmopolitan activities. And Savannah is great for all you Southern students. Steeped in history and boasting the most attractive locals this side of the Mississippi, it is not to be missed.
Or maybe you want to take your long weekend in another country? Toronto could be the city for you. Oh, and the legal drinking age is 19…bonus!
