Lounging on a beach with a great book is fun, but for some people, the best vacations are the action-packed ones. Whether it鈥檚 yoga, kayaking, skiing, or running, some travelers just want to get their sweat on while enjoying time off from work or school, and we can鈥檛 really blame them. We know that endorphins make you happy and that exercise can be great for your mental health, so it makes sense that lots of people have a preference for sporty, active trips over completely restful ones. If you鈥檙e thinking about taking a spring break trip where you can have crazy adventures and bliss out, here are some locales and retreats to consider.
