ST. LOUIS — As temperatures drop below average in the St. Louis area, it’s no surprise people are looking for a way to escape the cold during spring break.
“The last three weeks of college have been tough, so it’s going to be nice to unwind,” said Luke Parent, a junior at Washington University.
The parent said he was on his way to Panama City Beach, Florida to visit family.
“I’m just excited to relax,” he said. “St. Louis, when it tries to become spring, it really can’t make up its mind. We’ve had a few warm weeks but it’s also been cold so the warm weather is going to be really nice.”
A number of Southwest flights at St. Louis Lambert International Airport serve warmer climates, primarily Florida. However, flying in a warmer climate can come with some headaches.
Carrie and Brandon Snider traveled from Orlando.
“We were on the tarmac for about 45 minutes trying to take off and they said it was because of spring break,” Brandon said.
A delay the two luckily were prepared for.
“When we checked in for our flight on the app, it said to prepare because it’s going to be busy,” Carrie said.
