After enduring weeks of strenuous tests, annoying assignments and 20-page midterm papers, spring break arrives in the nick of time to save you from the verge of a nervous breakdown. When that school-free week finally comes, it’s time for you to party and let loose. College students spend their spring break vacations in destinations across America, but a few places cater to the spring break crowd. Read on for tips on spring break vacation ideas.
Kick It in Cancun
College students and high school seniors alike head to the wild city of Cancun to party ’til dawn. This spring break mecca is popular among the 21-and-under crowd, since the legal drinking age in the city is 18. MTV has hosted numerous events in and around the city during spring break, including concerts stacked with popular music artists from that respective year. Students flock here for foam parties in Cancun’s hottest nightclubs, day parties on the beach and dance contests around the city. The city’s bars run rampant with spring breakers downing tequila shots and shaking their hips on makeshift dance floors.
Dance the Night Away in the Bahamas
The Bahamian city of Nassau is a prime destination for spring breakers from around the country. Students spend their days sipping fresh juice concoctions in coconut halves while lounging on gorgeous beaches, snorkeling and scuba diving in the island’s blue-green waters and shopping on Paradise Island. At night the city’s bars and clubs come to life with thousands of students partying underneath the stars at open-air clubs and dancing to reggae music at Nassau’s indoor hot spots. Spring breakers over 21 can also head to the city’s casinos.
Get Wet and Wild in Panama City, Florida
Panama City, Florida, is yet another town notorious for its spring break appeal. The city’s sunny, warm weather, white sandy beaches and massive clubs have made it a hit with the hundreds of thousands of spring breakers who flock to the city every year. While you have to be 21 to drink at the clubs and bars in the city, if you’re over 18 you can enter most of the clubs.
Party in Miami
Miami, Florida, is like a paradise if you’re looking for more of a chic, fashionista spring break vibe. Spring breakers pack the glitzy shores of South Beach, downing frozen drinks and dancing at beachside bars by day and hitting the city’s famed party scene at night. Students with big budgets shop ’til they drop in Miami’s high-end shopping malls, then don their duds among the masses mingling along Ocean Drive.
