After spring break, we all hear about all of the wild times in Florida, or the trips to the Carribeans, or New York City. No one ever talks about when they stay home or go on nearby road trips, which can still be quite exciting.

On top of the road trips, many students rack up some cash by working so that they don’t have to be “spring broke.”

Indy students talk about their stay-cation:

“I went to Chattanooga for a little bit, which was a two and a half hour drive. My favorite part about the trip was rock climbing at Raccoon Mountain, and the climb was about 600 meters. It was really fun, and I got to go upside down a lot. Once I stayed upside down for about 10 minutes. I also went a German restaurant where they served me a big ball of meat, but it wasn’t a meatball. I don’t know what it was, but it was pretty good,” Jon Oquinn, senior.

“I stayed home, sadly. I ended up babysitting a lot and made a lot of money so that I can go shopping, so that was nice,” Selena Barnett, junior.

“I went to Chattanooga over spring break. I did a lot of hiking on a lot of different trails. It was really nice weather, and so fun. I also went to a really good restaurant, Two Ten Jack, where they serve izakaya and ramen. I got ramen, and I had trouble using the chopsticks,” Sophie Boykin, junior.

With summer on the way, maybe these Indy students’ stay-cations will turn into vacations.
