En algunos colegios y universidades ya comenzó el Spring Break 2023. Conoce el destino favorito para las vacaciones de primavera en Estados Unidos.

As frigid temperatures have rocked many areas of the country this winter, some college students are beginning to plan their spring break trips to warmer locations. We will take a look at some of the favored destinations in Arizona, California, Florida, and Texas.


Arizona is the only landlocked state on our list, so beach lovers will want to look elsewhere.

The many national parks opens up many opportunities for those looking to escape into nature.

Lake Havasu State Park

One popular spot for college student spring breakers is Lake Havasu State Park, located a little over three hours from Phoenix. Head to the lake or hit the trails for a daily hike, this state park has activities for everyone.

Where should you stay at Lake Havasu?


For students looking for a more relaxed spring break, Sedona, Arizona, could be just up your alley. The weather is a major “pro” for those studying in cooler areas of the country. In March and April, the daily highs vary between the high 60s and low 70s —perfect for hiking, shopping, or exploring the local art scene.

Where to stay in Sedona?

Those looking to head to Sedona have a few options in selecting their accommodations. PlanetWare has compiled a list of the six best campsites in the area. The city is full of hotels, resorts, and bed and breakfasts, but many are filling up quickly.


The Golden State has a lot of offer spring breakers.

San Diego, Los Angeles, and Santa Barbara are great, but expensive options, for those looking to hit the beach and catch some rays (or waves!). Santa Cruz, Monetary, and Half Moon Bay which are a bit further north are great options for those who want to do some hiking while still enjoying an ocean view.

California is also one of the only destinations on this list where hitting the slopes for a ski or snowboard vacation is possible. Of all years to spend spring break in a cooler area, this may just be it considering the record snowfall the Sierra Nevada Mountains have received.


Of the four states listed, Florida, is the most widely recognized as spring break hotspot. There are cities scattered across the state that are prepared (whether their residents like it or not) to welcome college students looking to party.

From Daytona Beach and Panama City to Miami and Key West, there are no shortage of options for those looking for a good time.

Panama City, which sits on the Gulf of Mexico provides a different ocean experience, compared to cities like Miami which sit on the opposite side of the state. Both, however, have plenty of options for college students. Booking accommodations will get increasingly more expensive as March and April approach, so those looking to head to Florida (especially groups) should book ASAP.

In Miami, some of the most beloved hotels for spring breakers include Delano South Beach, The National, and Surfcomber.


The Lone Star state has a few underrated spring break spots that are sure to bring the fun of Florida, but without such enormous crowds.

Galveston Island has long been a favorite for students looking to make the most of their spring break. Full of bars, restaurants, beautiful beaches, and great shopping, Galveston is sure to keep visitors busy. Hampton Inn & Suites Galveston,  Casa Del Mar Beachfront Suites, and Best Western Plus Galveston Suites are some of the most highly rated hotels in the area, but will fill up quick.

Port Aransas is a great options for those interested in a slower pace for their vacation. A chance to see a dolphin and plenty of volley ball of sure to keep some at the beach all day. In the evening the city is has plenty of dining options that are sure to please the tastebuds.
