With the start of March Break, what better time to check out some of the most popular getaways…
I decided to do a blend of both family friendly and some college destinations to make everyone happy.

Miami is the classic spring break destination and is one of the best places in North America to spend a lot of money really fast on nothing but partying. It’s a great time if you can afford it and even for all the students who can’t. Plenty of cheap drink specials all over town catering to the less financially endowed vacationers.
Check out the Ultra Music Festival which is happening next weekend.

This place will be filed under our family destinations and most of you will be scratching your heads and wondering. “isn’t that where Snooki comes from?” and while yes, yes it is, try to forget about that for the time being.
What most people don’t know about the Jersey Shore Beaches is that they are also great for families looking to rent a nice little 1-2 bedroom for a week.
My friends have been doing this for a few years now and it’s a great way to save some money and live in a beach house for a few days or weeks.
Home Away is one of the best sites for finding a spot in Jersey.
South Padre Island

Be sure to check out the Coca Cola Beach party . This was recently named the largest beach party in the world by Travel Channel so be sure to check it out while you are there. I am pretty sure it would be hard to miss.

Cancun has been called Mexico’s answer to Daytona Beach. As much a destination for partiers as Acapulco is a destination for romance. Plenty of things to do in Cancun and the party goes on for days and days. Over 100,000 partiers descend on the city for this party and its hard to miss them. Because the legal drinking age is 18, there is no shortage of young people looking to have a more hassle free vacation.
The hotel Zone of Cancun is shaped like a 7 and has plenty of options for your budget. There are also plenty of bars and restaurants all within walking distance.
One thing to keep in mind when landing in Cancun is to be sure to use one of the two licensed companies that can take you from the airport to the hotel district. One is Gray Line and the other one is T.T.A and they both have booths right outside the customs service. They have shuttle options and limo and taxis. The prices are set by the airport so you are sure to get a fair rate.
Check out their facebook page to be sure to connect with other partiers heading down for the break.

Another great and affordable option for all inclusive spring break packages is Punta Cana located in the Domincan Republic. While there are fewer clubs than say Cancun, there are plenty to keep you busy for a week or so. While you are there be sure to check out Imagine. http://imaginepuntacana.com/ one of the newer disco that was built into an existing cave.

Orlando would be the premier family destination on this list. How can the kids not get excited about going to Walt Disney World. Walt Disney World is actually made up of four theme parks. Epcot Center, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Check them all out here http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/ and be sure to get there early and be ready for a few lineups….
