Top 10 Spring Break Getaways for Introverts

Top 10 spring break getaways for introverts helps you unpack your personalty for enriching personalized experiences. I’m feeling the eye-rolling vibe 🙄 from introverts everywhere. Is it because spring breaks are typically associated with large crowds, loud parties, and long lines? I’ve found a few places where you’ll be able to skip the crowds, noise, and chaos, for the most part. Start packing, oh, and don’t forget to pack a good book (maybe my debut book: Unpack Your Travel Personality, it’s all intentional travel and self discovery. 

Please know, that I know, all introverts are not alike. We all have personal life experiences; from childhood, relationships, socially… and life’s. Knowing this, I’ve crafted a varied list for spontaneous types, for reflective types and for those who prefer hands-on escapes. One thing I think most introverts can agree less is more: fewer crowds, less noise, less busyness, well, you get the idea.

Eastern U.S.

Folk Art at Village of the Arts – Divine Excess – You just gotta stop because it is Divine

Wilmington, Delaware – is a top pick if you’re looking for a European-style escape. Choose Chateau Country, a place to appreciate old-world luxury. Grand mansions dot the countryside; a few have been home to the DuPont family for generations. Today, many of these spectacular homes and their stunning gardens are open to visitors. Introverts will relish garden strolls and a glimpse into a world of splendor and beauty. Stay at the Inn at Montchanin, a collection of charming small cabins perfect to hold up for an afternoon of reading.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park, is an area stretching from North Carolina into Tennessee, with 533,427 acres. Dang, that’s a lot of hiking! Spring is wildflower season, the perfect time for a hike or a canopied picnic surrounded by the gifts of Mother Nature. Book an Airbnb, rent a cabin, or enjoy a glamping getaway. It the perfect place for forest bathing,  and alone time for reflection.

Bradenton, Florida – a secret beach town nestled between Tampa and Sarasota. Bradenton offers ten gorgeous beaches, a walkable riverfront, and a throwback, Florida downtown. The Manatee and Braden rivers are perfect for quiet mornings or late afternoon canoe trips. These rivers also have namesake parks to visit. Stay at Londoner; it’s located in a cool neighborhood on the edge of the riverfront. Park the car and walk to markets, restaurants, shopping, and more. P.S. My bestie is an introvert, and she loves the area.

 

Midwest U.S.

 

Gruene Texas

Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas – a surprising getaway especially if you’re a lover of art deco. Add in Hot Springs National Park with its glorious hiking trails, thermal bathing facilities, and a spa-like vibe without the walls. Also, note the area offers lakes galore, art around every corner, museums, and hundreds of miles of biking trails. Where to stay? There are plenty of chain hotels for those who prefer expected and ordered amenities. For those who enjoy the flow, and more creative stays, opt for a historic, grand visit to Arlington Resort Hotel & Spa, book a lakeside overnight at Country Lake Inn, or try Happy Mellow Hotel. 

Texas Hill Country, located 30 minutes west of Austin, offers a variety of small-town to-do’s. Investigate Dripping Springs, which is home to the Distillery District. Enjoy a local brews, spirits, and wines. Then head to Hamilton Pool Preserve. Make a reservation to explore these crystal blue waters and a 50-foot waterfall. Gruene is oh-so introvert-esque. The entire town is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it’s a flâneurs dream. The historic district is decidedly upcountry. Be awed at the 19-century brick storefronts. Or pull up a chair and enjoy local and national artists performing at Gruene Hall, that been around since 1878. You may opt to stay in Austin, which is an hour away or visit here  website for more ideas. 

Elkader, Iowa – looking for a peaceful escape? Elkader Iowa is a road trip waiting to happen. The Turkey River is the area’s centerpiece. An excellent place to canoe or try whitewater rafting. The Elkader River Walk is a picture-perfect walk connecting downtown Elkader to City Park and George Maier Rural Heritage Center. If you’re a fan of history, the area has 11 sites on the National Register of Historic Places, plus an Opera House. You’ll find the area to be recreationally alive and historically preserved with many modern amenities sans the crowds. The city is home to intimate stays.

 

Western U.S.

 

Sundial Bridge Redding California 


Eugene Oregan, is called the Emerald City due to its dense forest populations. It’s a small town and doesn’t have the hustle and bustle that Portland is becoming known for. The city’s vibe is laid back whether you visit a local winery or an organic farm. Hit up the Saturday Market, or better yet, attend bluegrass or a gypsy folk show at Sam Bond’s Garage. Eat dinner at Grit or Rye to discover the cuisine of the Pacific Northwest; locally-sourced, farm-to-table ethos. Tube down the Willamette River, enjoy sailing the Fern Ridge Reservoir, cycle, or hike up Mount Pisgah to admire the wildflowers and other foliage. Hostels, hotels, campgrounds, and vacation rentals are available for overnight stays.

Las Cruces, New Mexico –  with the majestic Organ Mountains to the east and the mighty Rio Grande to the west, Las Cruces could be a fabulous spring break option. The area is home to wonderful art galleries, educations museums, a lively theater scene, and miles of desert terrain. Enjoy clear blue skies perfect for a hike in a state or nature park. At the same time, Old Messial Village should also be on the itinerary. It’s home to La Posta Restaurant, which has earned 4-stars on Trip Advisor, and The Fountain Theater and San Albinos Catholic Church are great travel options.

Redding, California – you’ll be skipping the big cities of San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego -and instead opt for the small town of  Redding, California. Put on your hiking shoes, as the area boasts over 200 miles of trails within a 15-mile radius. A quick ride from Redding is Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, complete with waterfalls, sandy beaches, and flush with trails. An hour from Redding, is Lassen Volcanic National Park. Similar to Yellowstone without crowds. The Park offers geothermal features, steam vents, mud pots, hot springs, four types of volcanoes and naturally occurring lakes. And the super cute downtown area offers historical theaters, live music, sumptuous eateries, bars, and taprooms to wrap up the day.

 

Spring Break Getaways Anywhere in the U.S.

My last pick for introverts’ top 10 spring break getaways is a staycation. If you don’t have the energy to get into a car, a plane, or a train, stay home and explore your own backyard. I’m sure there’s a museum you’ve been dying to explore, or you may even spend the day at a local bookstore, at a theater, or chill’ at a local spa. Whatever you do, power off the electronics and remind yourself this is a vacation. Dedicate plenty of ‘ME’ time!
