Spring Break only happens once a year, so make it count.

Here’s our list of the most searched for destinations on Hipmunk during the peak Spring Break season from February through April. We’ve ranked the destinations by their HipScore. The more nuts, the more we’re nuts about the hotspot.

  • Hip Score:
    4 Nuts
    • Popularity: It’s the most searched for destination during peak spring break season.
    • Flight Cost: Roundtrip average is $327
    • Hotel Cost: Spring nightly average is $150. From two digit bargains to five digit penthouses, Vegas has something for every budget.
    • Variety: There’s a lot to do in Sin City besides gamble. Shows, celebrity chef restaurants, and even hiking.
  • Hip Score:
    4 Nuts
    • Popularity: The postcard perfect weather makes LA a popular place to visit during any season and for all types of travelers.
    • Flight Cost: Roundtrip average is $339. You'll score even better deals if you're coming from a city like Las Vegas, Phoenix or Denver.
    • Hotel Cost: Spring nightly average is $179. But the closer you get to the beach, the pricier it gets.
    • Variety: LA covers a lot of space, so the options are virtually endless. If you want glitz and glamour, try Hollywood. Looking for great people watching? Then Venice is for you.
  • Hip Score:
    3 Nuts
    • Popularity: Miami’s neighbor to the north beat it out on this year’s list!
    • Flight Cost: Roundtrip average is $331
    • Hotel Cost: Spring nightly average is $205
    • Variety: There’s a lot to do but when you compare to Sin City and the City of Angels, it doesn’t stand a chance.
  • Hip Score:
    3 Nuts
    • Popularity: Miami’s tropical weather and beautiful people make it a yearly go-to Spring Break spot.
    • Flight Cost: Roundtrip average is $361
    • Hotel Cost: Spring nightly average is $245
    • Variety: Nightlife, beaches, international cuisine...and more beaches. Did we mention beaches?
  • Hip Score:
    2 Nuts
    • Popularity: Maybe it’s that you need a passport to visit or the distance from many parts of the US or the pricey airfare.
    • Flight Cost: Roundtrip average is $548
    • Hotel Cost: Spring nightly average is $295
    • Variety: Most activities revolve around the beach.
  • Hip Score:
    2 Nuts
    • Popularity: Popular because you don't need a passport. But it's a much easier flight from the East Coast than the West Coast, making it hard for half the country.
    • RT Flight Costs: Roundtrip average is $487
    • Hotel Costs: Spring nightly average is $153
    • Variety: An island with a rain forest and bioluminescent bays. Need we say more?

Know your budget and do your homework. Less exotic destinations have cheaper flights, but your daily expenses may be cheaper outside the US if you avoid touristy areas.

Budget Flights

Save on getting there with these destinations
and you’ll have cash left over for essentials like the perfect bikini.

Splurge Flights

Fancy something exotic? These destinations will cost you more to get there, but they’re worth the splurge.

How can Hipmunk help? We’ve got features that make Spring Break planning easier. You can also tweet us with questions: @TheHipmunk #HipBreak.

  • Search by Landmarks

    Search for hotels by points-of-interest so you know you’re staying near the action.

  • More than Hotels

    We search everything from large hotel chains, Airbnb apartments, HomeAway vacation rentals, and hostels.

  • Heatmaps

    Use the Heatmap to make sure you stay in a neighborhood that suits your travel style. We suggest filtering by “Vice.”

Not Going Far?

Then Amtrak might be right for you. Hipmunk shows Amtrak alongside flight results so you know when taking a train is a better choice.

What To Pack?

  • - Sunscreen and lots of it
  • - Sunglasses
  • - At least 3 swimsuits/trunks (you’ll definitely want to alternate)
  • - Sun protective clothing (you really can’t be half naked all day)
  • - Portable bluetooth speakers
  • - Backup government issued identification (just in case)

Lastly, if you want to party like a Hipmunk, then we suggest you follow our HipBreak playlist.
