If you got mostly A’s: You’re going to Florida or Mexico

Florida tends to get a bad reputation, but it continues to be the top spring break spot, there are many different locations you can go to. You can hit the theme parks in Orlando, explore the Gulf coast in Tampa or Clearwater or you can party hard in Miami Beach — though they broke up with spring break this year. But if you’re looking for a vacation with all the parties and no headaches, you can head to Mexico and stay at an all-inclusive resort.

If you got mostly B’s: You’re going to Europe

If you have friends who studied abroad in Europe this year or were there yourself recently the FOMO might be hitting hard. So this spring break, you’re taking your classy self on a European vacation for lots of food, wine and Instagram photos.

If you got mostly C’s: You’re taking a hiking trip out west

You like getting high up in the mountains, keeping it chill and reconnecting with Mother Nature. You may choose to hit California for parks like Joshua Tree or head to Yosemite for a classic outdoor experience. But, if you didn’t get enough winter this year, perhaps a skiing trip in Colorado will be your ideal destination.
