3 Spring Break Destinations For Adventure Seekers

Spring is the perfect time to shake off the winter blues with a new adventure. Hit the road and discover your new favorite, fun-filled spring break destination among the vibrant landscape of Sedona, on the sun-soaked sands of Oceanside, or in the forest-covered ridges of the Smoky Mountains.

1. Sedona, Arizona

Sedona is known for its stunning scenery, making it a great spring break destination. With so much natural beauty to see, one of the best (and most thrilling) ways to explore it is with a helicopter tour. Strap yourself in and get ready for awe-inspiring aerial views of the Red Rocks and ancient ruins, like 700-year-old cliff dwellings. If you’d prefer to stay grounded, head out across the rugged terrain with a Jeep tour to get a closer look at the rock formations, petroglyphs, and more.

For a truly unforgettable night, plan an evening of stargazing. While not a pulse-pounding adventure in the traditional sense, it will likely get your heart racing, nonetheless. You’ll see countless stars twinkling in the expansive sky over Sedona, a designated International Dark Sky Community.

Tucked in the rocky landscape, Club Wyndham Sedona is the ideal setting to rest and refresh between outings.

2. Oceanside, California

Fondly referred to as “O’side” by locals, fun and sun surrounds you in the cheerful coastal city of Oceanside. With nearly 4 miles of beaches, hitting the waves should be at the top of your to-do list for any spring break adventure. Hop on a longboard and hang ten on the legendary waves off the SoCal coast. There are plenty of surfing experts if you need help getting your bearings. Want more than a tan as proof of your experience? Reel in a big catch on a sportfishing charter, you could hook a sea bass, mahi-mahi, tuna, or even shark.

Club Wyndham Oceanside Pier Resort is the perfect spot to dust off the sand and recharge before you head out for more exploration. Or, check in to WorldMark Oceanside, available through Wyndham Club Pass.

3. Smoky Mountains, Tennessee

Lace up your hiking boots, hit the trails, and seek out one of the celebrated waterfalls of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You can find the impressive 80-foot Laurel Falls at the end of the 2.6-mile, moderately difficult Laurel Falls Trail. Clingmans Dome, the highest point both in the park and the state of Tennessee, offers another spectacular view. A steep, half-mile walk from the parking area gets you to the observation tower on the summit with stunning 360-degree views that stretch for miles. The access road closes seasonally (between December and March), but the truly adventurous can still get to the tower by hiking the 7-mile road.

Is white-water rafting on your vacation bucket list? Grab an oar for an exciting ride down the Pigeon River. Paddle through class 4 rapids on the upper river or travel down the lower river to enjoy a more picturesque and family-friendly trip. The dam-controlled waters offer guaranteed releases beginning in late-May with trips starting as early as March, based on water levels.

Catch your breath and give your legs a rest at either Club Wyndham Great Smokies Lodge or Club Wyndham Smoky Mountains in this truly adventurous spring break destination.
