White sands, crystal-clear water and nonstop entertainment provided by mega-resorts like Atlantis make the Bahamas a must.

Las Vegas

The Las Vegas scene may not be tropical, but it's certainly college. During Spring Break, every day is a good day to party poolside at the MGM Grand's newly renovated Wet Republic.

Dominican Republic

Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic is overflowing with pristine beaches, all-inclusive accommodations and bustling nightlife to keep the party going all week long.


LMFAO's "I'm in Miami Trick" could be your spring break soundtrack in South Beach. Plus, the posh nightlife and pricey drinks are more than made up for by the hot spot's accessibility.

Puerto Vallarta

For those craving a Mexican getaway on a budget, Puerto Vallarta's bars, beach parties and hidden coves are your best bet.

Daytona Beach

While spring break in Daytona Beach may seem dated, its bikini contests, cheap rooms and miles of beaches you can drive on make it the classic road trip destination.

South Padre Island

South Padre Island, Texas, usually attracts families, but during the month of March its party scene is better suited for coeds and fraternity brothers.

Panama City Beach

In years past, Panama City Beach, Fla., has called on celebs such as the Jersey Shore cast, Sean Kingston and Kenny Chesney to lend their party scene some cred.


Negril, Jamaica, is known for its laid-back party vibe where you can enjoy water activities (and drinks) day and night.


Tequila shots, wild dance parties and wet T-shirt contests may be clichè, but they still make Cancun the perennial favorite spring break party.

Cabo San Lucas

Spring break in Cabo San Lucas will set you back a pretty penny, but the Mexican resort town is party central for West Coasters.


Acapulco's all-inclusive resorts, cliff divers and party scene attract students every spring break.
