While your friends may be taking spring break inspiration from “Kokomo” by the Beach Boys, you don’t have to book a flight to Aruba or Jamaica for a fun-filled trip. Skip the airport and drive to one of these nearby destinations (just don’t expect bikini weather):
• Martha’s Vineyard: Visiting in spring means fewer crowds. You can bring your car on the ferry, but there’s affordable public transportation on the island.
• Cape Cod: Take a dune tour and walk along Lighthouse Beach.
• Portland: Take a boat ride and indulge in a lobster roll while visiting this seaside town in Maine.
