Looking for the ultimate Fall Break destinations?


Published (Volume 76, No. 8)


Fall break is approaching and for those who do not know it is next Thursday, Oct. 16, through Sunday, Oct. 19.

With luck (and funds), you are thinking of places that you would like to go for the break. Well, think no more. Here’s a top 10 list of places to go.

10. Home is a good place to go for those who need money, to wash their clothes, work or just enjoy being with their family.

9.  Atlanta is filled with fun and excitement.  There are so many shopping malls for shopaholics.  The Falcons have a game at 1 p.m. Sunday against the New Orleans Saints for those who like football. The Martin Luther King Jr. Historic Site, Centennial Olympic Park and the World of Coca-Cola are great attractions as well.

8. Orlando is great because, even though it is fall, the temperature there is still warm. The beach is always a great place to go and relax. The city also is home to Disney World, MGM Studio and Universal Studios, where you can act like a kid again.

7. Gatlinburg is so beautiful this time of year. You can visit the various shops. Senior Nicole Draper said, “I love Gatlinburg because of the white-water rafting. It is so much fun.” While you are there, rent a cabin in the mountains and relax.

6. New York has a gigantic selection of places to shop. Junior Tara Harris said that she would “shop until she dropped.” Do not forget to visit the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and Times Square.

5. Las Vegas is the place for those who are 21 and over because the casinos are going to be live and jumping. For those not interested in the casinos, check out the All-American Sportspark.  It has go-karts, miniature golf, arcades, batting cages and indoor skydiving.

4. Chattanooga is filled with marvelous scenery. There are a huge variety of shops, the Tennessee Aquarium, which is the largest in the state, and a great IMAX theater.

3. Hot Springs is a romantic getaway for those who would like to venture with their significant others.

2. St. Louis offers the Anheuser-Busch Brewery Tour, the Arch, which is the tallest man-made monument, and Union Station, the world’s largest train-station-turned-mall.

1.  New Orleans has the French Quarter; no more needs to be said.
