- Spring break is the ideal time to get away from work, school, and cold weather.
- Kayak, a travel search engine, put together a list of this year’s top US spring break destinations.
- New York City is the only non-warm destination on the list.
While many people believe that spring break is nothing more than an excuse for wild college debauchery, it is actually the ideal time to get away from work, school, and cold weather — no matter your age.
Travel search engine Kayak helped us narrow down the most popular spring break destinations in America this year by looking at searches on the site over the last six months (October 9, 2017, through January 9, 2018) for travel dates between February 24 and April 21, 2018.
Here are the eight destinations everyone wants to escape to this spring break.
8. Honolulu, Hawaii
This year, flights to Hawaii are cheaper than ever, which could explain why Honolulu is such a popular spring break destination. With gorgeous beaches, surfable waves, and tropical vibes, Honolulu is an epic vacation destination.
7. Fort Lauderdale, Florida
While Orlando and Miami are sure to attract hordes of raucous spring breakers, Fort Lauderdale tends to attract a slightly more sophisticated crowd. There are stunning coastal views, a happening food scene, and a substantial number of night clubs and bars to keep visitors busy.
6. Phoenix, Arizona
Fans of Southwestern and Mexican food need look no further than Phoenix to get their fix. The sunny city (it gets around 300 days of sun per year) is home to good food, the stunning 50-acre Desert Botanical Garden, showstopping sights, and plenty of bars downtown.
