Life at The Village never stops. The 7 week break in Rexburg is notorious for being a ghost town. This busy college town loses majority of the college students for just shy of two months and leaves the town feeling quiet and small. But just because the students left doesn’t mean the fun and adventures stop. Rexburg is close to so many fun outdoor activities and the 7 week break allows you to get outside and enjoy the last leg of summer.
