Spring Break Essentials

Published by at 9:00 am under Editorial

We’ve all had those trips when we piled into the back of a minivan, headed for the beach, and “enjoyed” eight hours of our family’s company. It may sound miserable, but it’s actually worth it if you end up drinking beer on a sunny beach for at least a week.

Since you should always be thinking about the warm beaches in Florida or Mexico, make sure to get 16 of your friends, and start checking these Spring Break essentials off your list. It may be nice in your neck of the woods, but there’s nothing quite like a getaway to spoil yourself on – assuming you do it right!


Sunglasses are definitely essential for Spring Break. First of all, you better be going somewhere sunny as all hell, it’s Spring Break. Second of all, shades are the easiest way to scope the crowd without looking like a complete creep. Whether you’re looking for hot guys or hot chicks, sunglasses will give you the opportunity to avoid having to make eye contact and let you roam freely. It’s also a great way to mask a gnarly hangover… which with undoubtedly happen.

A Bikini

Since you’ll be somewhere hot, you definitely need to look hot… and you’ll probably be in a bathing suit about 80% of the time. This goes for guys and girls. It’s completely mandatory for girls to be out in full force – baring skin, getting tan, and looking hot. What better way to do that than in a bikini? And guys, well, you’ll want to be where the bikinis are, so you better dress the part. Make sure it fits, it’s sexy, and you’re comfortable doing just about anything in it… but don’t be afraid to lose it!

A Camera

A lot of weird/cool/random stuff happens during Spring Break. It’s an insane week of non-stop, 24-hour parties. You’re going to want to capture this magical moment – because there’s no way in hell you remember it! A camera’s necessary not only to remember this out of control vacation, but to hold it against anyone that had a slip up (which should be just about everyone in your group at one point). Make sure you get those sloppy make-out sessions, bathing suit malfunctions, and nights spent on the bathroom floor all documented on film. You’re going to have to make this blackmail last an entire year.

A Souvenir

A souvenir can be just about anything, but for Spring Break, you need something to remember your trip by, since most of your actual memories will (hopefully) be hazy. Sure, the camera will help, but you want something you can put in your dorm, office, or wherever you can look everyday to remind you of the fun you could be having. Whether its someone else’s bathing suit, an empty bottle, or a stolen street sign, you have to come back with something. Just try to make sure it isn’t permanent…

Some Friends

The best thing about Spring Break is doing a bunch of insane crap with people you know, in a place you don’t. Get yourself a damn crew. Spring Break would be pointless if you didn’t have at least one wingman that can corroborate your epic stories when you both head back to reality. Besides, someone’s got to distract the hot girl’s ugly friend.


Uhh… What the hell is Spring Break without alcohol? Unless you’re either a complete loser or over the age of 85, this better be a given.
