How to Spend Spring Break in the United States

By Viator, April 2018

4.5 2462 Reviews | Add your review

The sun, the sand, the surf, the fun! Spring break is the ultimate American vacation tradition, so no wonder some of the best spots to cut loose are located here.

San Diego
Spring break was meant to be spent in the sun, so if you're looking for sandy beaches, a laid back attitude, and plenty of fun, San Diego is the place to be! Grab some sun in La Jolla, take the kids to SeaWorld or the San Diego Zoo, and catch a wave on Mission Beach.

Anaheim
With the kids out of school for spring break, get some quality family time in. The ultimate in family getaways, Anaheim has more to offer than just theme parks. While Disneyland and Universal Studios draw the big crowds, don't miss out on day trips to Catalina Island, whale watching from Newport Beach, and more! In case you haven't gotten enough roller coasters, Six Flags Magic Mountain, LEGOLAND and Knott's Berry Farm will keep the whole family entertained all day long.

Florida
Another haven for families and young people alike, Florida is rife with adventures, theme parks, and excitement! Though Universal Orlando and Walt Disney World are two of the biggest draws, there is plenty more to do in The Sunshine State. A stroll in Miami Beach, tours through the Everglades, and hanging out with manatees are just some of the perks of a Floridian vacation.

Hawaii
Take advantage of the more temperate weather in Hawaii during spring break and get outside! Among the most idyllic beaches and landscapes in the world are those in Hawaii. Sweeping vistas, gorgeous sunsets, and active volcanoes make a trip to Hawaii memorable. Hike a volcano, dance at a luau at the Polynesian Cultural Center, go for a snorkel, and visit Pearl Harbor. Or you can just soak up the sun on one of Hawaii's numerous beaches, like on the North Shore, and work on your tan.

There is even more spring break fun awaiting visitors in Las Vegas, the party capital of the world; Austin, a popular spot for spring breakers who love barbecue and rock n' roll; and Los Angeles, where you'll find all the sunshine you need to put winter behind you.
