Where do you folks think would be a good place for sprong break within 10 hrs of Cleveland

I want to go to a large city but also on the ocean. I considered Chicago because I love the city although not on the ocean still lake Michigan has nice beaches but idk if it will be warm enough. I've also been considering a trip back to Virginia Beach.

I'm definitely looking for warm weather and a beach definitely any suggestions?

Assuming your spring break is in March, you need to completely scratch Chicago off your list. The average high in March in Chicago is in the mid-40s. Chicago's average temperatures shouldn't be much different than Cleveland's during that time of year.

Perhaps something on the Gulf of Mexico near Mobile or New Orleans may work too. I'm not sure if they are big enough for you though.

Yeah it's the last week of March and that's what I was thinking it's going to be exactly like Ohio

I have a friend in Cleveland that goes to Myrtle Beach several times a year. It's about 10 hours. Obviously not a large city but I'm not really sure what other options you have that are anything like "spring break destinations". Chicago does have fantastic beaches but is far more of a summer destination.
Florida is a bit too far if you're looking to drive no more than 10. I'd say 13-14 at a minimum.

Myrtle Beach is at the fringe of 10 hours.

Google maps says 10 hrs 33 min but honestly I've found they are fairly conservative in their estimates. Even when going right around the speed limit I've gotten to places at least 30 minutes before when Google maps says I was supposed to get there. And regardless, I don't think the extra 33 minutes would necessarily be a deal-breaker for the OP like an extra 3-4 hours would be.

Google calculates the time on going the actual speed limit, and people always go over that. For a few hours of driving, that time adds up.

Unless you are driving very very very very fast, 10 hours for from Cleveland is still in the middle of nowhere and likely to be cold. Look into some airline tickets.
