Top 5 Destinations for Spring Break 2015

In less than a month’s time, the week we’ve all been waiting for will finally arrive. We’ll be saying goodbye to late night midterm cramming, the never-ending snow of Albany, and the horrendous negative degree temperatures – and hello to sun, fun and a week of non-stop partying with our best friends. Hey, we’re only students once, right? 

Spring Break is coming, and if you’re still unsure where to jet off to, we’ve rounded up the top 5 destinations to go to this year.

Miami, FL


One of the best destinations for college students during Spring Break is Miami – that Will Smith song says it all. It’s no wonder either, with glorious heat, beautiful beaches, and a ton of bars aimed at students with special offers and cocktail deals. After a long day of tanning on Miami Beach, the sun sets and the neon lights of South Beach glow ready for a night of partying. Miami nightlife is not to be missed! 

New Orleans, LA

Looking for a more cultural alternative for this years Spring Break? Well, look no further than New Orleans. Parades, parties and more, the city has plenty to offer both day and night. Many bars have no closing hour, the food is delicious, and there’s music blasting on every street. You can enjoy the French feel of the architecture, and you won’t be stuck on things to see and do.

Cancun, Mexico

Cancun is one of the most popular Spring Break destinations in the world. It’s not just a week for college students anymore – people from across the globe fly out to Cancun to see what it has to offer. Arguably home to Mexico’s best beaches, blue waters and ancient Mayan ruins, Cancun has plenty to show in terms of its cultural heritage. The city’s club scene is worth a visit as well, as some of its nightclubs hold up to 4,000 people.

Panama City, FL

Florida is back on the list, this time with party city: Panama City. Situated along Florida’s Emerald Coast, the city has access to some of the most stunning beaches on the East Coast. A massively popular destination for Spring Breakers, you can indulge in ice cream on the white sands by day, and party in the city’s bars and clubs all night long.

Las Vegas, NV

Well, we couldn’t make a list of party destinations without including the infamous Las Vegas strip could we? Many students are keen to spend their dollars in one of over 30 major casinos, and have a night that could resemble a scene from ‘The Hangover’ (without the whole losing your friend on a roof thing, obviously.) With some of the best venues and entertainment in the country, Spring Break will certainly not let you down in Vegas.
