If living in the Bay Area for four years has taught us anything, it's that you don't have to fly to Florida or Mexico to have an enjoyable spring break. That's why we decided to make this year's travel issue focus on local destinations and the one reasonably cheap way any college student can take: public transportation.

Sure, plenty has been written about making the most out of your money when you're in college - and, admittedly, this issue was written by students living on a typical student budget. But more than that, the spring break we hope to portray is also one for the professor, the Berkeley resident or anyone who hasn't really explored what the bay has to offer.

There are more places in the bay worth visiting than we can put into these few pages, but the ones you'll read about here are gems of the Bay Area. Sure, you've probably taken BART to the city an uncountable number of times, but how often have you visited Marin County? Hop on a ferry and visit Tiburon, where you'll find a different side of the bay than you're used to.

Or if you're the type of person who prefers spring breaks to be more relaxing by sitting down with a good book, take BART to the Mission district of San Francisco. A bonus: excellent Mexican food, the likes of which are almost impossible to find in the two-block campus bubble where most of us spend the day.

Or you can really make use of that Class Pass on your student I.D. and go to Oakland, where you can visit a building of truly biblical proportions.

But whatever you choose to do for your break, we hope this year's travel issue has at least opened your eyes to some possibilities that exist in the bay. You don't need to get lost in the world to have a great spring break - just in your own back yard.
