Top Spring Break Destinations: Lake Havasu, South Padre Island, Las Vegas

| February 11, 2013

Welcome to Las Vegas sign

Just when you think you can’t take the freezing temperatures or gray skies any longer, spring break arrives. Top spring break destinations are located throughout the United States, so there’s plenty of room for everyone to have some fun. It’s time to pack your bags for spring break hotspots like Lake Havasu, South Padre Island and Las Vegas—all places you can navigate like a local with the help of DexKnows.

Have a blast at Lake Havasu

There’s an old country-music song about “oceanfront property in Arizona.” There’s no such thing, of course, but if someone suggests you check out lakefront property in Arizona, do it. Lake Havasu City, Ariz., is the hottest spring break destination in the Southwest. The water stays warm and comfortable, and the lake’s lack of waves makes it perfect for party boats. Catch some rays on sandy London Bridge Beach. That’s right — London Bridge isn’t falling down; the real deal has been on permanent vacation at Lake Havasu since 1971. The London Bridge is now the second most popular tourist attraction in Arizona (after the Grand Canyon, of course). Start planning your spring break at Lake Havasu by finding a hotel on DexKnows.

Splash into fun at South Padre Island

Looking for sun and surf? Don’t overlook the Gulf of Mexico. South Padre Island is a spring breaker’s delight, whether or not you’re from Texas. Spring break 2013 brings Coca-Cola Beach back to South Padre Island. Located at the Isla Grand Beach Resort, Coca-Cola Beach attracted thousands of fun-and-sun seekers each day during spring break 2012. The party at Coca-Cola Beach in 2012 included dance, bikini and karaoke contests, as well as appearances by groups such as the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders and the Miller Lite Girls. Start making plans by finding a place to stay on DexKnows.

Take your luck to Las Vegas

Las Vegas could change its nickname from Sin City to Spring Break City, given its rise in popularity with spring breakers (largely due to MTV Spring Break). If you choose Las Vegas as your spring break destination, you’ll enjoy partying poolside during the day and dancing all night. Many Las Vegas hotels both on and off of the Strip offer spring break packages; start looking for the hotel that suits your personality at DexKnows. Remember: What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

You can’t go wrong with any of these top spring break destinations. Plan your trip with DexKnows, grab your swimsuit and go have some fun.
