The Best and Worst Spring Break Destinations in the U.S.

Think carefully about where you want to go before you book a trip


Spring breakers, now is the time to start planning your trip and researching travel deals. The first thing that you need to consider is the company you are traveling with. Will you be arriving solo or with your family, your friends, or your significant other? This will play a huge role in the destination that you choose.[slideshow:98849]

College students looking to party on the beach may want to consider Panama City Beach in Florida, while adults traveling with their kids may want to consider a place with fewer crowds like Anguilla or Hawaii. The longer you wait to book your trip, the higher the prices will go.

Some of the best destinations according to your preferences may be the worst for others. Kids will love to go to Walt Disney World, for example, but this is a peak season for the park. Save your money and sanity, and stay away.

A factor to consider – other than crowds and money – is the kind of trip you want. Are you looking for spring skiingdigital detox, an off-the-grid location, or beaches with grand parties?
