10 Things To Do Over Spring Break


Spring break is right around the corner, and it can be difficult to come up with things to do that don’t involve driving around for hours and sitting in parking lots. So, I’ve compiled a list of ten things to do this spring break. 

  1. Go to Lake Red Rock with some friends and go on a walk or bike ride around it. Go outside and enjoy the spring weather. 
  2. Choose your favorite restaurant and order the food to go or if you’re on a budget make something at home. Buying a bucket of chicken from Pizza Ranch or KFC is always a personal favorite. Then, find a nice spot to have a picnic. This could be at the lake or in your backyard. The picnic can be a cute date or a fun lunch with your friends or family. 
  3. Go roller skating.
  4. Go bowling.
  5. Grab a group of friends and go on a drive through the Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge. 
  6. Have a movie night with friends.
  7. Go thrift shopping and find some cute and cheap outfits.
  8. Using the cute and cheap outfits from number seven (or already owned clothes), have a photoshoot with your friends. 
  9. Have a Nerf war with your siblings and friends throughout your house. 
  10. Go to the Pappajohn Sculpture Park in Des Moines. This is good for photos and enjoying the outdoors with some friends. While you’re in Des Moines, you can go to a restaurant that we don’t have in Pella.
