According to Wikipedia, Spring Break is “a recess in early spring at universities and schools in various countries in the northern hemisphere.”

There are a lot of ways to have a good time while on Spring Break. Of course, you can relax anywhere, but it’s likely that you’re headed to the beach (or maybe, skiiing, but why?). If you’re headed somewhere, anywhere for Spring Break, Luke Bryan, through his ever-thoughtful lyrics, gives about seven ways to be sure to have a good time during your early spring recess.

Drink a beer. 

Doesn’t matter where you’re from or where you’re going, drinking a beer (or several) is the easiest way to get your Spring Break on.

Play it again.

Find a spring break anthem. Play it again. And again.

Don’t shake it.

In “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)” Bryan wants you to “shake it for me, shake it for me, girl.” He literally asks you to shake it on the hood of his truck or “it don’t matter.” To be really safe for the entirety of your spring break, it’s best to just, not shake it. IF, you do feel like you should shake it, do not shake it on the hood of a truck or a tractor. Do all of your shaking on level, safe ground. Wear all of your clothes. Think before shaking. And mostly, spring shake it, don’t break it.

Rain is a good thing.

I know what you’re thinking– rain is not good while at the beach. This is mostly true. However, rain is a good excuse for staying in and getting some much needed rest. Also, skin cancer is real.


This one is important. If you’re participating in any normal spring break activities, you’re likely to do something that warrants an apology to someone. Go ahead and be the better person– apologize quickly and often.

Do your thing.

There is no better advice, for any situation, but especially Spring Break. Do you thing, float on a breeze, whatever it takes. Spring break should absolutely be a drama-free zone. Doing your thing will likely contribute to everyone else doing their thing and maybe everyone will end up, “Easing on down the road…Rolling anywhere the wind may blow.”

Get yourself in the zone.

In “If You Ain’t Here to Party,” Luke tells you to pack it up and head home. I’d like to tailor this to be a little more family friendly, but still say: prepare yourself to have a good time. Again, drama free zone. Don’t be the person that brings the whole week/party down.

By following along closely to Luke’s advice and lyrics, your Spring Break is set. It’s also smart to follow any and all laws in the state that you’re visiting. And maybe, also, adhere to like, social norms and expectations.
