For many college students, spring break is the best time of the year. After a long school year full of academic stress and the cold winter months that leave many feeling mentally and emotionally drained, Spring Break is the best way to reconnect with friends while celebrating the start of the warmer months, and the upcoming end of the school year. Many students save money all year for Spring Break, and it is the perfect time to splurge and treat yourself, especially on a trip where costs can be split among a group of many people. Plan your trip in advance to get discounted rates on flights and luxury hotels; maybe even charter a private jet from a company such as Access Global for some extra lavish fun.
Here are a few of the most popular destinations to choose from this Spring Break.
South Padre Island
South Padre Island, Texas is the most popular Spring Break destination in the United States. South Padre Island is most well known for its nightlife and beaches that hold massive parties during spring break each year. SPI has special bars, clubs, and live music venues created just for spring breakers. If you are looking for the biggest party in the country this Spring, SPI is the destination for you.
Panama City, Florida
Like SPI, Panama City is known as one of the nation’s best and biggest Spring Break Destinations. Nicknamed the “Spring Break Capital of the World,” Panama City offers 27 miles of beautiful beaches and hosts a major spring break event coordinated by the city which welcomes half a million spring breakers each year. Panama City offers daytime activities for visitors, the most popular of which include spending time at the beach, visiting a boardwalk arcade, or playing mini golf. At night, parties begin on the beach and many resorts provide entertainment, such as Tiki Bars, hot tubs, drinking games, and more.
New Orleans, Louisiana
For those who want to party and don’t care about being near a beach, NOLA is the perfect place to spend your break. Renowned for its Cajun cuisine, local music, and eccentric nightlife, New Orleans is one of the most unique, and fun, cities in the United States. Spring breakers can spend the week partying on Bourbon Street and checking out the French Quarter.
Each year, a massive spring break celebration takes place in Eastern Mexico, in The Riviera Maya. Visitors can count on spending their days swimming on the beach and attending pool parties every day featuring world-class DJs. Cancun often hosts major music festivals or concerts during the month of March, which many spring breakers enjoy at night after partying all day. For those wanting a serious party alongside the opportunity to explore the beautiful scenery of Mexico, Cancun is the perfect destination.
If spending time swimming at the beach or day-drinking in the sunshine isn’t your idea of a good time, Spring Break could be the perfect time for you to experience beautiful mountain views and connect with nature in the state of Colorado. Hit the slopes at popular ski resorts in Aspen or Breckenridge, then take a dip in a hot tub (or attend one of many spring break hot tub parties – a popular activity among student visitors).
