Top 10 places to go for spring break!

Updated on May 4, 2017 | Source

Let's get out into some sunshine. "Spring Fever" has Begun and its time for a change of scenery! I have put together a list for both families and College students. I wanted to bring together lots of options. Enjoy!

  1. Florida is the world's top vacation spot for everyone. In the middle of the state, Universal Orlando, Features the new 20 acre Wizarding World of Harry Potter, opened in June 2010. This is a must see for Harry Potter fans and a great addition to Universal Orlando.
  2. Oahu has so much to offer! Warm water white sandy beaches, but I wont stop here, it just keeps getting better. They have so many things to see and do in Oahu for families. Snorkeling, Horseback Riding, Water Parks, Submarine "Atlantis" Rides, Evening Dinner Cruises and Dolphin Encounters. The Polynesian Cultural Center is a Hawaiian Disneyland!
  3. Puerto Vallarta One of the largest Bays in Mexico, it is a mecca of things to do in Rviera Nayarit, . The concierge for most resorts can also arrange sport fishing, Scuba Diving, Windsurfing, Horse Back Riding, with terrific snorkeling, water parks and diving all nearby.
  4. Springtime In Paris The Cinematic magic of the canal St. Martin. The city of light will dazzle you. In Paris you can take tours to see the Mona Lisa along with the most famous art in the world at the Louvre. The Eiffel tower is a must see. Visit the Notre Dam Cathedral, The Champs Elyse'es is in downtown Paris Features lots of designer shops. Stop off at a cafe' and enjoy their mouthwatering pastries. Take a river cruise on the Seine river.
  5. Las Vegas there are many reasons to leave the poker table. Las Vegas has the surreal air of good food and fun combined with in your face advertising. In 2000 las Vegas started marketing to families by adding more theme parks to the city and a Wet N Wild Park . Personally I loved Staying at the Luxor! They have one of the best spas. On the upper floor they have huge arcade with imax theaters, and a karaoke recording booth. Fun!! New York New York has some neat shops and the big roller coaster is a must to ride. The Hilton has the spaceship Enterprise ride with live actors on it!


Spring Break for College Students

6. JAMAICA: Spring Break Where "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem!"
Let's go to Jamaica start with Sun Splash Tours! In 1987, we brought Spring Breakers to Negril, a sleepy fishing village and it's never been the same. Now the hottest Spring Break destination in the Caribbean, the seven mile beach offers laid back charm for spring breakers looking to escape the in-your-face Spring Break in Mexico. Join thousands of other students in this tropical paradise to party in the thatched roof beach bars on your Spring Break in Jamaica. 5 nights 649.00


7. Florida, South Beach

South Beach for spring break this year is turning into a happening thing -- continuing last year's trend, Miami is more of a hot spot for spring break 2011 than it's been for many many moons, too. Some of South Beach's spring break popularity this year is thanks to everyone's cents-savings efforts (staying in the US means you can drive, which can possibly be a bit cheaper than flying), but it's partly because this little part of southern Florida is just exceedingly cool.

South Beach's heating up hostel scene (check out Jazz's South Beach hostel) is a sign of the student-friendly times in this sweet city by the sea and the bay, as are some South Beach spring break packages.

What South Beach ain't: major "Girls Gone Wild" kinds of craziness. What you will find here: a very cool club scene is the order of the night in South Beach -- you'll want to dress for success.
