Students: Spring into Some Cheap Fun this Spring Break

Spring Break is a rite of passage for 20-somethings in Sonoma County. Not everyone wants to – or can – dig out their passport and go to Cabo every spring. This year we’re giving you some local ideas that won’t break the bank because, let’s face it, being a student often means having a less-than-desirable bank balance.


Many of you are probably already taking advantage of the great outdoors (this is Sonoma County after all). There’s nothing more affordable than hitting your local trails and nothing more gratifying for mind and body than enjoying the natural world. Head to Sugarloaf Park for a hike. It is Spring Break after all, so take a couple friends, or a partner, and go camping!

Drink (Responsibly)

Legal-aged college students in Sonoma County can head over to Cotati on Thursdays to join in on the “Cotati Crawl.” It’s a busy and hectic night of bar hopping, drinking (responsibly!) and enjoying the time out with your friends. Friar Tuck’s Pub has great music and a kitchen for some delicious food. With a whole street full of fun bars, your night will be set.


What’s more classic than a night of friendly (or maybe not so friendly) competition? At Windsor Bowl, Monday nights are for Rock n’ Glow from 5 to 10pm. Enjoy some pizza and beer from their lounge while you let out your inner competitor.

A week of whatever fun you can come up with, minus the school stress. Put down the books and go out and enjoy beautiful Sonoma County. Big fun doesn’t have to come with a big price tag.
