The spring break vacation has evolved over the years to become one of the most profitable weeks of the year for the “chosen” resort communities. Many resorts, hotels, bars and restaurants realize the profits and potential for the future, and have welcomed massive waves of partying teens year after year, so that they strategically gain spring break notoriety, major profits, and a reputation as a desirable spring break destination. Depending on the college/university, most spring break vacation dates are strategically planned and announced well ahead of time, and they range from late February to early April. For the most part, the 2013 top spring break destinations have stayed consistent over the past five years, according to several popular travel sites.
The number one vacation hot spot for spring breakers this year is projected to be Panama City Beach, Florida, again. To the returning student body, it is apparent why: reasonably priced beach accommodations and a community that caters to the spring breaker. The beach, with sugar white sand and majestic gulf waters, welcomes two million students annually. This beach has hosted many spring break parties for students across the U.S. Many events are planned for 2013 at world-class nightclubs like Club La vela and Spinnakers hosted by MTV. The hospitality services developed by the business community and the beautiful gulf beaches combine to create spring break events that are second to none. This makes it possible to keep the title of the “spring break capital of the world” year after year. The weather is great during spring with an average temperature of 75-78 degrees during March.
Acapulco, Mexico in the years past was a major spring break contender and was ranked by students as number one year after year until interest turned to a more reasonably priced excursion in Cancun. With the national and global economy looking promising for the year ahead, it is expected that Acapulco will return to the list of top spring break destinations in the world. It is expected that the “pricier” upscale destinations like Nassau and Freeport, Bahamas, as well as Daytona and South Beach in Miami, Florida will see record numbers again, beginning this year especially. No matter what choice you make, you can usually find deals and packages offered by many of the resorts and hotels at all the hottest places to be. Regardless, the hard-working college students that will lead our nation one day will continue to flock to their favorite “hot spots” for spring break, in turn bringing major financial reward to the communities that strive to be one of the 2013 top spring break destinations.
