Schoolies, toolies, schmoolies. Why not try Spring Break? A right of passage for American high school and college students, the wild, wonderful and free antics of Springbreak can be found in the US and across borders in places like Cancun, the Bahamas and Texas. The biggest and best of the bunch takes over Florida’s Panama City Beach where there’s endless bars, pool and beach parties, concerts and the rest for one mad month each year.

Panama's month-long party

Panama City Beach is home to kilometres of lush white sand along the Gulf of Mexico in northwestern Florida. For one wild March each year, all you can see along the coastline is Spring Breakers in celebration mode. This little paradise is the most popular Spring Break destination for US students in part thanks to Club La Vela, the largest club in North America, daily beach parties complete with DJs and MCs and pool parties at every hotel along the coast. Plus if planned right, it can be rather affordable - and you can swim with dolphins.

Book a Spring Break tour package with Student Flights and you could get extras like VIP club and party access, complimentary drinks, party packages, welcome dinners and transportation. Of course, if you’re not into Florida why not try Spring Break in Cancun, Mexico, Nassau, Bahamas of even South Padre Island, Texas! Or upgrade your Spring Break experience with a cruise option!
