Where do you want to go for spring break?
From the ski resorts in British Columbia, Canada, and the winding country roads in Ireland to the beaches of Montego Bay and celebrity hotspots in Los Angeles, depending on your preferences, here are five top spring break destinations we’re sharing with you.
1. Whistler, Canada

You can include this incredible experience with a free mountain tour, behind-the-scenes look at the machinery, visit the 2010 Olympic displays at Roundhouse Lodge, and more.
