Spring break

When is it for college students? Is mid April a bad time to go for a family.

We usually are in Myrtle Beach in mid April. Never have a problem with college students. We stay in the north end of Myrtle Beach. In Kingston Plantation. Last year Coastal Carolina University had a dance there on the last night of our trip and some of the kids got rowdy. But nothing that would prevent me from going at that time again.

This year our school break is the 3rd week in April and I'll be there with friends. Not at all worried about college break.

Weather can be iffy at that time. Last year we had beautiful weather. In the 80s and the kids swam in the pools every day. Other years we have been and it was quite chilly. But we loved it anyways!

The two weeks with the highest demand this year seem to be April 9-16 and 16-23. This covers most spring breaks here.

Our Spring Break is the week of April16-23 for our local public schools. Most colleges, I believe have Spring Break much earlier.

We will be staying at Kingston Plantation as well, lillious! It is our first time to MB and we are renting a villa from an owner. So looking forward to it and hoping for great weather, especially after the winter we have had here in New York!

Yes we have had a good old fashioned winter! If you have time go to Brookgreen gardens in Murrells Inlet. Flowers will be in bloom. It's a beautiful place to enjoy the outdoors.

Spring breaks here really vary... colleges here are starting on March 14th and running thru the 27th depending on where Univ or Ky starts the 14th or March.. Marshall starts on the 20th our local K-12 if they get a spring break will get it starting the 28th or March.. A school 40 mins away in Ky doesnt get spring break until around Easter..... Most of the kids around here dont do alot during spring break... younger families but older kids that do sports usually cant go and do anything ...our spring break always falls in the middle of softball season so thats a no go and our HS boys are still in tournament play and could be through the first of the month or so...
