Every day you roll out of bed and head to class. Every afternoon you walk home from class, stop at the dining hall, grab some dinner and head back to the dorm. Every night you’re sitting at your desk studying for your next exam or writing your next paper. You deserve a break!
It’s time to ditch the books and start planning your Spring Break! 2012 promises to be an exciting year for college students everywhere; with a myriad of destinations that have something for everyone. Looking for a bit of sun and fun?
Here are the top five destinations for this year’s ultimate vacation:
1. Panama City Beach, Florida
PCB tops the Spring Break destination lists year after year. Every hotel in the area is student-friendly, welcoming college kids from across the country and around the world. Plan on a non-stop party no matter which hotel you check into. From day parties to nights in the hottest clubs, you’ll never be left wanting for excitement in PCB. Dress to impress and bring some extra cash; you’ll need it for the various cover charges.
2. Cancun, Mexico
Looking for to party 24/7, then head to Cancun! Whether you choose a luxurious resort or a budget-friendly hotel, Mexico is the place to be this Spring Break. Have you ever seen a water slide in a bar? You will here! From clubs frequented by the rich and famous to clubs featuring bungee jumping, night spots run the gamut in this fabulous city.
3. Las Vegas, Nevada
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas; lucky for you! Book your travel with StudentCity and you’ll be placed smack in the middle of the party. The Palms hotel is the headquarters for MTVs Spring Break 2012 and you won’t get a ticket on your own. You’ll get exclusive invites to private parties, express entry into concerts and pool parties, and best of all, a chance to appear on MTV during their wildly popular Spring Break telecast.
4. South Padre, Texas
South Padre is quickly moving up the ranks in Spring Break destinations. Rent a condo instead of a hotel room and you’ll experience all of the little joys and comforts of home. While in South Padre for your holiday, head to Louie’s Backyard for the hottest parties, contests and concerts. The casual night clubs offer you a chance to get sweaty on the dance floor and cool down at the bar. Remember: 18 to enter, 21 to drink!
5. Negril, Jamaica
If the thought of thousands of sweaty bodies doesn’t appeal to you, head down to Negril for your Spring Break. The city is gorgeous and devoid of the crowds of the more popular destinations. You can dance all night if you choose, at The Jungle or head on over to Margaritaville for a live show. Having a blast on Spring Break doesn’t mean bumping into someone every time you turn around!
Spring Break is an annual tradition for college students everywhere. Choose from these top five destinations and you’ll find yourself having the time of your life!
