Celebrate the end of the semester and get some sand and sun with your college buds by heading out for spring break. Here are our hot destination picks for a fun and action-packed vacation.
Whether it’s your first or last spring break as a college student, Cancun is a definite must. Its pristine beaches and A-list nightlife scene (don’t miss Coco Bongo, or this Catamaran Cruise) are made even sweeter by the budget-friendly rates. This spring break destination is also famous for drawing international students, making for some great club parties.
With it’s incredible beaches, crazy nightclub and parties, and constant supply of alcohol (check out this great pub craw tour), Miami has rightfully earned its place as America’s ultimate spring break destination. And while it definitely won’t be cheap here, Miami will give you a taste of the Caribbean spring break without the expensive international flight.
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
If you’re willing to shell out more money for the real Caribbean paradise, the Dominican Republic has started gaining popularity as a spring break getaway. And while the flight is expensive, everything else is affordable. Punta Cana is a haven that combines breathtaking beaches and fun night socials with delicious and cheap local food. And if typical spring break activities start getting old, you can go snorkelling, hiking, zip-line rides, and other activities.
Miles of sandy beaches and a bustling nightlife – what more could you want for your spring break? San Diego is an affordable spring break destination for West Coasters looking for a well-deserved break without travelling too far. For an interesting spring break activity, check out the San Diego walking tours. We recommend this one, the Tequila, Tacos, and Tombs Tour.
Tampa Bay, Florida
With spring break capitals like Miami and Cancun, places like Florida often get overlooked. Which is both a shame and a blessing at the same time. This gem in America’s Southwest region boasts of over 60 kilometers of white sand beaches and a significantly less number of visitors—a perfect destination for a relaxing, sunny spring break.
