Spring Break Vacation Ideas for 2021

In the words of famed travel writer Paul Theroux, “winter is a season of recovery and preparation.” As we approach the one-year mark of this global pandemic, planning a responsible getaway—be it a long weekend close to home or an extended spring break trip to a remote destination—is a wonderful way to fill the coming months with inspiration, rejuvenation and hope. These are some of our favorite spring break vacation ideas, featuring both warm- and cold-weather destinations that are open to Americans, with standout properties that promote social-distancing and enhanced health-safety procedures.

SPRING BREAK VACATIONS IN THE U.S.

Sea Island, Georgia

Within the Golden Isles of Georgia, this privately-owned hideaway offers warmer temperatures, ocean breezes, a slower pace—and one of the top traditional resorts on the East Coast. If you seek rejuvenation, the 65,000-square-foot spa is sure to satisfy (booking a treatment is worth it for access to the lounge alone, where daybeds seem to float over the rippling pools that fill the atrium). Those suffering from cabin fever will appreciate the three renowned golf courses and a wide array of activities—from dance classes to fishing. The range of accommodations is equally diverse, with secluded oceanfront villas and family-friendly cottages, ideal for seclusion.

Hawaii

Since last spring, Hawaii has instituted comprehensive quarantine, social-distancing and contact-tracing policies to help protect its residents and visitors. Currently, travelers who present negative test results from a state-approved testing partner, prior to departure, are excused from the required 10-day quarantine—allowing them to enjoy the 50th state’s wealth of natural beauty. In the safety of the outdoors, travelers can re-energize with daily surfing lessons, mountain hikes, bird- and whale-watching, snorkeling, lounging on the beach and dining on fresh fish and fruit, oceanside. For an idyllic home base, some of our favorite properties include: Big Island’s Mauna Lani and Four Seasons Hualalai, as well as Andaz Maui.

U.S. Virgin Islands

Just 1,000 miles southeast of Miami, the U.S. Virgin Islands are perfect for a convenient Caribbean getaway, without a passport. The three major islands—St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas—are known for their charming pastel buildings, crystal-clear harbors, white-sand beaches and rich cultural diversity, with activities for all ages and interests. To enter, travelers must receive travel certification from the USVI Travel Screening Portal by providing proof of either: negative results from a Covid-19 molecular or antigen test received within five days of departure, or positive results from a Covid-19 antibody test received within four months of departure.
