By Delaney Smith and Sydney Sears

While many students are packing for their extravagant vacations, others are staying put this spring break. Though most stuck at home imagine it to be a dull and eventless break, there are many things to do at home in Kentuckiana.

Skyzone, located at 2671 Technology Drive, Jeffersontown Ky., is one option. It includes a giant room full of trampolines to jump on, along with other activities including the trampolines. The prices vary from $9.00 to 20.00.

Sophomore Tony Murphy has visited Skyzone.

“There is nothing really to compare it to; it is an experience all its own.”

Another option while at home during next week is to visit the walking bridge in downtown Louisville over the Ohio River. There is no cost, so this is preferable for anyone on a budget. Here you can do various activities along with walking including running and biking.

Junior Mikaela Click walked and took pictures of the sunset while visiting the walking bridge.

“I’d recommend it because it’s super rad and awesome,” said Click.

Downtown Louisville also has many options. The Louisville Science Center, located at 727 W. Main Street in Louisville, is a good place to go on a cold or rainy day. It is a fun and educational place that you can take  friends or siblings. It costs $13 for adults and $11 for children.

“I have been and it is a very fun place to go especially with friends. You learn and see a lot of cool and interesting things,” said sophomore Kailey Haydon.

One of the most talked about events over the break is the release of the first movie of the Divergent trilogy. Divergent premieres in theaters tonight.

“The Divergent movie is a great way to kick off spring break. It is going to be amazing,” said Haydon.

Along with all those options there are also many other things in the area such as, the Louisville Zoo, Earth and Fire Pottery, the YMCA and the many shopping malls in the area.
