Many people choose to go down south to the many beaches. Panama or anywhere in Florida is very popular. The beach is always a nice place to get away to for Spring Break. Others tend to travel north and see all of the sights. It is solely up to the student's preference.

There are a lot of places to go to during Spring Break. It may not always be the best time to go on vacation because you have so short a time. Florida is always a good place to go. Anywhere tropical, especially Cancun are great options. Southern California is also fun.

Panama Beach is good, as is Virginia Beach. Myrtle Beach is another popular choice for students. Students with more money to spend often go to either the Bahamas or someplace like Cancun, Mexico. However, you might consider doing a service trip over spring break. Service trips (at my school called Alternative Spring Break) are gaining in popularity. It allows you to serve a community as well as build your resume.

College students tend to take spring breaks in warm sunny beach areas. Many areas in Florida, as well as the Caribbean, offer special packages for spring breakers. They put together all inclusive deals that include flights, hotel stays, and some meals. These prices are often times majorly discounted from the normal charges.

Cancun is absolutely the most popular. And flights down there are pretty cheap considering theyre international. But you certainly don't need to go to Mexico to have a good time. If you like the party scene Virginia beach or the jersey shore are also good spots. Anywhere with a beach and warm water to help you forget about final exams abd term papers really.

If you're a party animal and you love crowds and wild gatherings, you can't go wrong with any beach in southern Florida. I would recommend that you book your flight and hotel a few months in advance to save a few nickles and dimes on your trip costs. If you're not a big party animal and you just want to relax in the sun, try going to Jamaica mon!

There are many companies that have spring break specials, that include plane ticket, hotel stay, and meals all in one. Popular locations range from Cancun to Miami, to Bahamas. Wherever you go, make sure you go in a group, stay together, and be safe. Tell friends and family exactly where you are staying, and find out beforehand if you'll have cell phone reception where you go.

Best places to go on Spring Break is somewhere warm and beautiful. Best advice is to go somewhere to help you relax. For instance most people may go to Florida, Hawaii,Mexico,Cali,etc. I think you basically choose a place that would take your mind away from all that studying and essays. Spring Break is like a key time for students to get away and enjoy themselves.

Cancun, Mexico is one of the most popular Spring Break destinations. Also popular are Panama City Beach, Florida and South Padre Island, Texas. If you want to try something a little different, visit unique destinations such as Jamaica, Europe, or a North American ski resort.

Someplace where you won't do anything stupid enough to keep you from finishing the semester! Seriously, some people like to party all during spring break. Others like to take it easy and relax. It's up to you but whatever you choose, be careful.

I would say Flordia, the reason I say this because it is one of those places you must go at some point in your life. They have many things to do plus not to mention awesome weather and beaches. Also I say Florida because I feel the cost would not be too bad either no matter where you are located in the US.

Mexico has pretty much always been the best place to go for Spring Break. Cancun, Acapulco, and Mazatlan are very popular spots in Mexico. You could also take a party cruise to freeport bahamas. Jamaica is another good spot as is South Padre Island. Panama city beach is a great spot as well and is home to MTV and the mtvu village.

There are many places that are enjoyable to go for Spring Break. Consider a tropical beach or the mountains. You don't always have to go to the "classic" Spring Break locations such as Panama Beach in Florida. Go somewhere different and enjoy a smaller crowd!

Always give mexico a shot, and not too close to home without being too far from home. You can have a great time and there are always a lot of fellow americans there doing the same thing as you, partying their vacation away. You can also get together a few friends and plan a road trip. I also loved virginia and miami beach for spring break, theres always a huge college crowd there.

Anywhere in the Caribbean is fantastic. I do not recommend Mexico since there is a fair bit of violence every year. You could go skiing in the rocky mountains.

Florida is a very good destination. Travel sites have many good deals for students. These are most often all inclusive packages and the more people go the bigger discount you get.

There are so many places to go on spring break; just make sure your vacation of choice is safe. Some of the most fun and safe locations include Naples, Florida; Blue Mountains, Canada; and Outer Banks, North Carolina. Also, maybe you should consider Alternative Breaks. Alternative Breaks are ways to give back to the community through volunteer work during spring break.

For many years students have gone to warm weather destinations, such as Florida, Mexico or the Caribbean. Recently, it has become more popular to go on a community service or alternate spring break. Many students have gone to New Orleans to help rebuild after Katrina. Other students have done similar trips in Africa or Latin America. Both the students and the communities benefit from this type of Spring Break.

Go somewhere warm! It sounds obvious, but a lot of schools' spring breaks are in March, when it is still too cold to do many outdoor activities in the northern part of the US. Mexico and the Caribbean are always popular spots. Vacation spots on the southern east coast like Miami or the Outer Banks in North Carolina are fun too. If you're not the beach type, or can't afford to travel that far, just visit friends - you'll have fun whether you get a head start on your tans or not.

One of the most popular places in the US is Panama Beach in Florida. It's become somewhat of a rite of passage for college students by now. Another good spot is St Padre Island in Texas. Miami or Daytona might be fun as well. For international spots, Mexico is the way to go. Specifically Cancun. It's THE destination for springbreak.

It really depends on where you go to school and what your budget is, but most students go to somewhere in Florida if you are on the east coast, or Mexico on the west coast. Panama City, Miami or Tampa are all good in Florida, just be sure to stay away from Ft. Lauderdale. Cancun is the destination to go to in Mexico. Wherever you go, have fun and be safe!

I think that the best places to go on Spring Break are locations that are warm, relaxing, and not too far away. If you're in the United States, that would most likely mean Florida, the Caribbean, and Mexico. Miami, Florida, Negril, Jamaica, and Cancun, Mexico are popular spots to go, particularly because during Spring Break you'll find a lot of other students there also, which means a lot of fun. Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands are beautiful Caribbean destinations, and because they're territories of the United States are easy to travel to without having to deal with immigration. Another option is to take a cruise, which are all-inclusive, usually cheap, and can take you to multiple places.

Unless you like crowds and excessive partying than avoid the "popular" spots. Pick someplace that you would enjoy, you can go anywhere. If you like the outdoors arrange a camping trip. If you love big cities and art galleries than go visit New York City. If you need something economical, head north. You don't have to follow the crowds to the beaches of Florida.

Being a student, we prefer always beaches to go on Spring Break. Because it will be hot during spring time, body requires something to get cool. So most of students prefer to go beaches and stay in resorts.

For the college scene, spring break vacations are popular along the coastal areas like the beaches of Southern California or Florida. It really depends on what you're interested in because traveling anywhere new is exciting. Because each school may have their own different schedules for spring break, you can consider visiting friends in other schools at that time.
