Spring Break Party! Traditional Beach Destinations
Grab those bikinis and American flag speedos while we talk about the absolute best places to party for spring break this year. The most popular destinations over the past 5 years have revolved around the same locations; Panama Beach or Daytona Beach in Florida, Nassau in the Bahamas, Acapulco or Cancun in Mexico, and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
These destinations embrace the party culture like nowhere else, and the bars and hotels in the area know what they are getting into each spring as much as you do. There are plenty of hotels and resorts in these areas that provide cheap spring break packages, but you need to book early in the season or you may end up paying more for the same deals. Pro Tip: Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for freebies when you are on the beach or at the bars, because sponsors love giving away free swag at big spring break party locations like these!
Other Spring Break Options: Be Different
So maybe your idea of a spring break trip doesn’t include all-day beach parties. We completely understand! Making memories and trying new things mean different things to different people. Alternative spring breaks are a great way to make the most out of your recess while at the same time growing as a person.
Volunteering is becoming very popular among students looking to push themselves out of their comfort zones and give back to communities in need. There are wonderful volunteer programs that help coordinate the details to get you tangible, hands-on experience working on build sites within cultures that need your help most.
Other spring break options are endless! Take a spontaneous camping trip in a nearby national park, become a history hunter in affordable places like Williamsburg, VA, go caving in the Yorkshire Dales, or shamelessly become a tourist in your own town. The best part about being different on spring break is that you usually spend far less money than a typical beach partier.
