4 Things to Do for Spring Break Without Burning Your Budget

February 27, 2019 | By Mason Roberts


By the time Spring Break comes around, we all are more than overdue for a break from school, work or just life in general. Unfortunately, for a lot of us, it’s impossible to take a break from our budgets.

Spring Break on a Budget

Whether money’s tight or you just don’t have a stash of cash in the bank, Delaware has a variety of places and events that you can enjoy over Spring Break without breaking your budget.

Below are a few of our favorite low-cost Spring Break ideas, and lucky for you, if you find any of them just a little beyond your current financial grasp, you can always find a title loan to help you bridge the gap.

Killens Pond Water Park

Splashing around during Spring Break isn’t just for college kids. If you’re looking for something to do with kids of any age, the Killens Pond Water Park in Felton is a great place to start.

Admission is very affordable, and once you’re in you’ll have access to the huge pool and corkscrew-shaped water slide for as long as you want, or you can just tan on a beach chair. Whatever you choose, this water park in Felton is well worth your time.

Biggs Museum of American Art

Not all of us want excitement during our break from the stress of everyday life. For those of more refined taste, wandering through the Biggs Museum of American Art is a great way to spend a quiet afternoon immersed in culture.

It has an impressive collection of nearly 2,000 pieces featuring fine arts, furniture, and sculptures from the Delmarva peninsula, and just like Killens Water Park, the admission is under $10. If you’re in the Dover area and have an appreciation for art and local history, you should definitely check it out.


Distillery Tour

But enough of the kiddy stuff. If you’re a college student, you probably want two things out of Spring Break: sun and partying. While a trip to the beach will provide you with the first, the best way to show appreciation for the second is with a tour of Painted Stave Distilling in Smyrna.

Admission is cheap and includes a complimentary product tasting. Not all alcohol is created equal, and after this tour is over you’ll understand why.

Cape May-Lewes Ferry

If you want to take a trip for Spring Break but don’t have the money to go out of state, then why not take a trip that’ll have you back home by dinnertime?

The Cape May-Lewes Ferry is a great chance to get out on the water and appreciate the sun and wind, and it’s cheap, too. Just be sure to buy a ticket for the return trip or you could end up stranded in New Jersey.

Delaware Spring

These are just a few of the many things you can do in the state of Delaware this Spring Break. If you want to find more, just do an online search through Tripadvisor or Yelp.
