5 Active Spring Break Destinations | FITS®

March 11, 2019

If lounging on a beach and drinking piña coladas doesn’t sound like your idea of a rocking Spring Break, you aren’t alone. The beach bum lifestyle isn’t for everyone, and you deserve to have a vacation that speaks to your interests.

This Spring Break, bust all the college student clichés and make a different kind of memory. Here are our top five destination picks for an active mid-semester adventure:

White Water Rafting

You’ll still get the beautiful waterfront views, but served up alongside the satisfaction of forging the rapids. A white water rafting trip is easy to plan for a group and can quench the appetite of even the biggest adrenaline junkie.

Check it out: North Fork American River Rafting in California.


There’s no better way to decompress from a busy first half of the semester than by getting back to nature. Whether taking a couple of day hikes or planning an overnight backpacking trip, hiking is a great way to get some exercise while still playing tourist.

Check it out: Great Smokey Mountains National Park in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.


If you’re really not a beach person, planning a Spring Break ski trip is about as opposite a route as you can go. But don’t be fooled — there’s still plenty of great skiing in March if you’re willing to go west. With warm weather just around the corner, you can get your fill of the snow before summer sets in.

Check it out: Alta Lodge in Utah. 


For a thrill that isn’t quite as strenuous as a day on the slopes or the trails, ziplining provides the perfect happy medium. Plus, ziplining can be a great bonding experience if you’re traveling with a group of friends. Spend a day cruising through the air and seeing the sights from great heights.

Check it out: Adventure Park Hotel Vista Golfo in Costa Rica.

Theme Park

It might sound a little unconventional, but a theme park makes a great Spring Break destination for the kid at heart. You can keep it classic and make a week of it at Disney World or take a day trip to a local favorite. 

Check it out: Carowinds in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

Remember: it’s your Spring Break and it can be exactly what you want it to be. Don’t be afraid to break the mold.

Sock Sizing

The Perfect Fit Starts With the Right Size.

Your sock size shouldn’t be a guessing game. Our socks range from small to double XL, but the best way to know the perfect fit for you is to match your shoe size to the chart on the left. That way, you’ll know the size you select will give you the fit and feel you expect.

Between sizes? Go with your gut, but rest assured that your socks will still fit great. If you receive your order and find yourself wishing you’d gone up or down a size, just let us know. We’ll happily send you replacements for your preferred size.

Concerned about laundry mix-ups? All FITS® socks are coordinated by color and size, based on the colors you see on the size chart. So, you won’t have to worry about mixing up your sizes with the other FITS® wearers in your home. (But stray socks mysteriously going missing in the dryer? Unfortunately, we can’t help with that.)

How Do You Determine Sock Size?

Sock sizes are typically measured in inches, not by your shoe size. So, a sock size 6-8 will comfortably fit someone whose feet are between six and eight inches long. However, at FITS®, we make it easy for you to choose the ideal sock size without having to measure your foot. Simply use our sock size conversion chart based on your shoe size to select the right fit for you. 

How Do You Measure Your Foot for Socks?

To measure your foot for socks, measure the length from the heel of your foot to the tip of your longest toe. The measurement in inches correlates to your sock size. For example, if your foot is 10 inches long, a sock size 9-11 should fit you comfortably. At FITS®, you can skip this step and find your sock size based on your shoe size using our conversion chart. 

What Is the Sock Size Conversion?

The sock size conversion refers to sock size compared to shoe size. While all companies may vary slightly on which size socks to purchase based on your shoe size, you can always measure your foot to find the right fit for you. 

What is Sock Size to Shoe Size?

Because sock sizes are determined by the length of your foot in inches vs. your shoe size, shoe and sock sizes differ. The FITS® sock size to shoe size conversion is as follows:

Knowing this makes it easy to choose the ideal sock size based on your shoe size without measuring your foot. 

What Age is Sock Size 9-12?

Sock sizes typically don’t correlate with age. For kids, age can be a general indicator of what size sock they’ll need, but everyone is different. An adult sock size 9-12 fits anyone whose feet are approximately nine to twelve inches long. For kids’ sock sizing, check with the company to find exact details to ensure your little one gets the perfect fit.
