Girls tanning, guys striving to have perfect washboard abs and soaring alcohol sales usually mean that Spring Break is drawing near.
However, due to an unstable economy and lack of jobs, students are most likely looking for cheaper ways to spend their break. A few alternatives to driving all the way to a beach would be to spend a few days in a larger city in this region. Oklahoma City and Tulsa have a lot to offer such as clubs, the Cain’s Ballroom, Tulsa Opera, Thunder games, concerts at the BOK, the Philbrook Museum and the Gilcrease Museum. Another option is to head north to Branson and visit Silver Dollar City, attend a wide variety of shows or to spend all day shopping.
“I went to Branson last year with a small group of my friends for a few days and we had a great time seeing to shows and walking the strip,” said Bryson Williams, Miami junior. “We were there for about four days and we didn’t spend an arm and a leg.”
There are a lot of fun, cheap options for college students who do not have extra cash to burn.
