In honor of Spring Break, hotels, cruises, airlines and hedonistic paradises have all released their unique packages to celebrate the pre-summer bash. If you still don’t have any upcoming plans, go ahead and snag a discount.
Where To Party
Inception Fest in Cancun, Mexico: If you brought an early-2000s bro comedy to life, this would be the spring break they’d attend. Inception Fest is part music festival, part nonstop party and part alcohol-fueled lechery. The Canun package contains 4, 5 or 7 nights in Cancun with complete access to the music festival and an open bar.
Where To Chill Out
An Italian Adventure in Tuscany: Spring Break doesn’t need to be beer-bonging and wet t-shirt contests. In fact, it can be downright romantic and relaxing just like the case at Renaissance Tuscany in Barga, Italy. Putting aside the parties, the resort, which overlooks the mountainous Serchio Valley, focuses purely on relaxation. From wine tasting with a local sommelier, relaxing in the spa and ambling through medieval villages, revelers will bask in the Tuscan sun.
Where To Take The Family
The National Cherry Blossom Festival in DC: No need to jaunt to Japan to learn a bit
about its culture, just hit up The National Cherry Blossom Festival, which runs from March 20 to April 19. In addition to the beautiful, blossoming trees, there’s an assortment of free cultural programs, a kite festival and a parade. For a more “all American” feel, the Smithsonian museums (free admission!) offer the perfect opportunity to teach your kids about U.S. history and its icons. Better still, flights to DC are generally pretty cheap.
Where to Find Singles
“No-Strings Attached” at Stanton South Beach, Florida: The No-Strings Attached Escape at Stanton South Beach is what would happen if you turned Tinder into a hotel. Not only is the hotel located in party-centric South Beach, but Stanton will also provide guests who are single “On the Prowl” tip cards, indicating the best spots for singles to meet and mingle.
Where Your Parents Will Be
“Up Your Game” at Key Club in Sarasota, Florida: It sounds more like a golf-cation for dad than a family-friendly vacation, but the Resort at Longboat Key Club definitely organizes some family fun. While dad’s away playing one of the forty-five holes of PGA-approved golf and mom’s bouncing on the tennis courts (both of unlimited use), you can join up later for daily doses of the stand-up paddleboards, kayaks and boogie boards. The package—relatively cheap for a family—starts at $359/night with the code UPGAME.
Where to Get Naked
Hedonism II in Negril, Jamaica: You know naked vacations are kind of becoming a thing, right? Hedonism part dos celebrates Spring Break with the spectacular, au natural environment at Negril Jamaica’s famous nudist resort. The all-inclusive package allows for endlessly day-drinking, skinny dipping, and mingling with other like-minded travelers. Just watch out for surprises in your selfies.
