With Old Man Winter seemingly throwing his hardest punches late in the season, it leaves many in Colorado feeling of one of two things - gratitude for a few more weekends skiing, or longing for sunny warm weather and tropical vistas. As for those who aren't done with the slopes, Colorado ski destinations have them covered. With an Aspen resort offering a spring break package, and Breckenridge hosting a full calendar of events during their Spring Fling, there's as much fun to be had as any distant beach. For those in the Centennial State longing for sand and surf with their sun, Puerto Rico seems to be trending as a new spring destination.
Spring Fever in Breckenridge
You could say Breck's Spring Fever (March 17 - April 14) has much in common with spring break at any beach destination. There's music with the Bud Light Live Concert Series, drink of course with the KSMT Spring Fever Beer Festival, and a bunch of competitions. There's even enough sun to get a sunburn even if you have a natural tan. The only differences are that there's snow instead of sand, and the competitions happen on a mountain instead of beach or tiki bar.

Three reasons why Puerto Rico is building a reputation as a spring break getaway. First, it's listed as one of the best cheap spring break destinations by US News & World Report.
