Spring Break Deals

It’s time to start thinking about Spring Break, whether you’re a family ready to have some good, clean fun, or a college student looking to party with friends. As a college student, while you're ready to immediately take off with friends after a hectic semester, doing a little planning first will save you some serious dough.

You owe it to yourself to look at the package deals that you can find online. Students can get party packages to help them hold on to some of their often hard-earned money, at locations that parents can feel good (or at least, okay) about.

The whole family can go, too, as destination packages allow them to enjoy discounted rates at their choices of cities in the United States, Europe, and more. Great deals are out there on travel, car rentals, and hotels, as well.

Spring Break Trips for College Students

For students, StudentCity offers destination packages to the most exciting clubs in fun beach locations such as Panama City Beach, Florida and Cancun, Mexico. Other exotic locations include the Bahamas and the Dominican Republic. These packages cut costs, besides giving students some sort of V.I.P. clout, which translates to no waiting in line to get into the coolest clubs.

At these exclusive clubs, there is an added bonus, as some of the music industry's hottest artists also show up to join the party. Imagine jamming out to cool music, dancing with friends, and rubbing elbows with celebrities! This is something for which not every college student has the opportunity. Spring Break is the perfect time!

Besides the glamorous night life, beach parties in the day time are a big deal at these resorts. With a live DJ, there is continual music and dancing going on. Spring Break Contests abound, including such events as beer pong and beach Olympics. There is something for everyone. There are even bikini contests if you’re brave enough to join in one of those! Of course, many just watch.That's okay, too!

StudentCity also has trained staff to make sure that everyone is having a good time with no worries and no hassle. This is the part that might make protective parents feel better about their kids taking off on Spring Break. The staff is there to help with navigating night spots as well as hotel stays. Students even go through an orientation when they first arrive to their destination. Not only does all this extra attention ensure a smooth trip, and just a fun time for college students, it helps to put parents at ease as they know that someone is watching out for their kids so far away from home.

Let Student City Plan Your Spring Break

Spring Break Trips to Europe

While Spring Break is a traditional time for college students to travel with friends, Incredible spring break trips aren’t limited to just the college students, There are plenty of online packages ready to satisfy the whole family on Spring Break. Families can go to the same destinations--often famous beaches--that their college students do. There is plenty to do so that Mom and Dad and little sister don't have to endure the bikini contest, too!

For those who want to do more, want to see more, and yes—perhaps, want to pay a bit more—plan a round trip to Europe. See the cities of your dreams—the lights of Paris and the amazing architecture of Rome. Enjoy London's museums and the pubs and parks of Dublin, Ireland. Navigate the canals and bridges of Venice or immerse yourself in the rich culture of Spain's Barcelona. With online discounts, including savings on hotels and car rentals, this trip of your dreams might not be as expensive as one might think.

Spring Break for the Whole Family

Cheapostay's website offers just as its name implies: cheaper stays. Cancun and Acapulco aren’t just for college Spring Break vacations. The whole family can enjoy these popular resorts, while Mom and Dad save on airplane fare, car rentals, and lodging. Families can enjoy U.S. destinations such as the lights of Las Vegas, which isn't all about casinos and night life. Las Vegas offers attractions for children as well as adults. San Diego, California is another example of an affordable family vacation where parents and kids can enjoy such sights as the San Diego Zoo and Sea World. Many destinations offer fun for the whole family--including the college student.

      I just recently moved back to Panama City. It can get quite busy during spring break. The best time to avoid the crowds is between mid April and late May. After Memorial Day the crowds are back and larger than during spring break.

      I have gone on vacation during spring break...some places even have better prices because they do not draw the spring break crowds:). Personally, I love to travel any time of year!

      Bill, don't I know it! We get too responsible as we get older. Thanks for reading, anyway. You are amazing to read so many hubs. You could stick to just the ones that interest you, such as the Genie Bra review! LOL. Thanks, as always!

      God I wish! Someone should point out to us all that the older we get and the more we work, the less chance we'll have for spring break vacations. LOL I would have taken more when I was younger had I known.

      Great suggestions, Vicki!
