Exhilarating Spring Break Adventures

Spring is nearly here, and adventure is calling! If sitting on a crowded beach isn’t exactly your idea of an ideal spring break, consider unleashing your inner explorer and embarking on an adventure at one of Benchmark Resorts & Hotels’ unique properties instead.

Lanier Islands Resort – Buford, Georgia

Located less than an hour north of Atlanta on the shores of Lake Lanier, Lanier Islands Resort is home to 1,200 sprawling acres of fun in the sun. Guests of all ages can join in with virtual sports suites, arcade games, axe throwing, escape rooms and more at the resort’s Game Changer fun center. Those looking to take advantage of the sunshine can also play a round of golf, embark on a boating adventure or enjoy the resort’s six new pickleball courts. Spring-breakers can snag elevated Southern fare at Sydney’s Restaurant and retire to one of the resort’s lakeside cottages to end the day.

The Preserve Resort & Spa – Richmond, Rhode Island

The Preserve Resort & Spa is an ideal destination for outdoor sporting enthusiasts. From clay shooting and fly fishing to horseback riding and ziplining The Preserve offers a robust variety of exhilarating activities. Memorable culinary experiences also await – including safari tent scotch and cigar tasting, campfire s’mores and candlelit dinners in the resort’s iconic Hobbit Houses nestled into hillside boulders.

Creekside Inn – Bishop, California

From The Whistling Trout’s complimentary breakfast buffet to the hand-carved front desk, rustic elegance and warm hospitality await at the Creekside Inn. Located in Bishop, known as “the small town with a big backyard,” the inn is the perfect homebase to explore natural wonders such as Bishop Creek Canyon, Yosemite National Park and Mono Lake. After a full day of trekking, fishing, or good old-fashioned relaxation, friends and family can gather around the outdoor firepits to enjoy the majesty of the Sierra Nevada and White Mountains.

The Sandman – Santa Rosa, California

The newly renovated Sandman Hotel is an oasis of fun. Located in the heart of Sonoma Wine County, guests are just steps away from some of the region’s finest wineries and breweries, dining options, outdoor adventures and local shopping. At the hotel, friends can compete on the bocce ball courts, take a yoga or mediation class in the newly-constructed Wellness Dome or laze the day away at the Pool House & Bar – sipping cocktails, reading a good book, or watching the latest sports game on the big screen.

Red Mountain Resort – Ivins, Utah

For wellness enthusiasts, Red Mountain Resort is an easy choice. Onsite, guests can stay active while hiking amid breathtaking red rock scenery. An abundance of adventures also await beyond the borders of the resort including scenic golf courses, picturesque kayak routes and awe-inspiring national parks. To replenish minds and body, visit Sagestone Spa & Salon or head to Canyon Breeze Restaurant for a nourishing meal with local ingredients, pasture-raised meats, homemade baked goods and sustainable seafood.

Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa – Somerset, Bermuda

Whether you prefer to explore hidden coves and secluded islands or snorkel amongst historic shipwrecks and flourishing coral reefs, there’s an adventure for everyone at Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa. For a taste of Bermuda, guests can head to the beach for local cuisine or visit the Cambridge Beaches Gallery to view artwork from Bermudian artists. Authentic cottage-style accommodations with stunning waterfront views provide a haven of relaxation after a day in the sun.
