Spring Break has graced upon us once again and college students from all over the country are hunting for their next destination for the ultimate party weekend.
This one is a classic, can’t go wrong with an all-inclusive resort in the beautiful city of Cancun. If you choose this spot, you’ll wake up with beautiful beaches outside to spend all day at and a popping nightlife. And with the resort taking care of all your food and drinks for the weekend, you won’t have anything to worry about. If you feel adventurous, you and your group of friends can also book several excursions like snorkeling, ziplining and more. This gem of the Caribbean is an all-time spring break favorite.
Tip: If you have a large group, try to find a hotel that can accept 4 people to a room. Some only allow for 3 which makes costs go up even higher so make sure to research before you book the final hotel.
Las Vegas, Nevada
The city that never sleeps also never disappoints. There is always something to do here no matter what hour of the day it is – from beach lounging to pool parties to club hopping, Vegas knows how to keep you entertained. Almost all big hotels have their own clubs that bring in popular artists and DJs to perform on the weekends and depending on who it is, the clubs gather big crowds. The strip has plenty of food and shopping if you find time from all the booze.
Tip: Although it’s creepy, some of the club promoters that approach you on the streets will probably have some of the best party and bottle service deals. Doesn’t hurt to listen.
Catalina Island, California
Just 20 miles and a boat ride away from LA, this hidden gem is a world away from all the craziness. Although it’s close to mainland, it feels like California’s own tropical island packed with water sports, boat tours, outdoor activities, adventures and more. If you don’t care too much about a big nightlife and enjoy being outdoors, then this is the place for you. Give it a few years and soon enough Catalina will have a great nightlife too.
Tip: Catalina is a small island with not too many hotels. Your best bet is to book a vacation rental home for the weekend so you get more space for your buck.
When it comes to having a good time, Miami know’s whats up. There is no question that Miami has a great nightlife and with beaches all around, there will never be a dull moment. You can spend all day basking in the sun and explore the many events and activities that are always happening in South beach. If you’re feeling crazy, you can even take a drive down to Key West, FL which is basically known as the US Caribbean.
Tip: For some of the really popular clubs, it’s worth it to spend the money and get the table. If you don’t, chances are that you’ll be stuck standing in an overly packed bar for most of the night.
Puerto Rico is probably one of the most underrated places for vacation. Although it may not come to mind first and is U.S. territory, it doesn’t feel anything like home. Spring breakers can enjoy a mix of beautiful landscapes, acres of beaches and lots of shopping. San Juan has a great crowd and vibe and I suggest staying near that area to make the most of what Puerto Rico has to offer.
Tip: Traveling to Puerto Rico can be expensive, sometimes even more so than Mexico. If you plan to go here, then book your trip a couple months ahead of time to get the best possible deal.
Over the past couple of years, Nashville has slowly become all the rage among the younger crowd. This music city welcomes visitors with open arms and lots of fun activities and places to go to. This may not be your typical spring break location but if you want to do something different and escape into the country side, then Nashville is your best bet.
Tip: Make sure that everyone in the group enjoys the music scene that Nashville comes with. If not all are into it, it may not be your destination this year.
