In many parts of the world, Florida in particular, March means beautiful beach weather. So to get in the summer spirit, plan a Spring Break beach vacation. But where to? (North America has a heck of a lot of coast to cover.) We've narrowed it down for you with our picks for the best Spring Break beaches!

1. Panama City Beach, Florida

It’s hard to turn down a balmy Florida beach trip in March. Look forward to 70-degree weather and lots of chipper coeds on a Panama City Beach spring break vacation. Why not split the cost of a PCB condo with fellow revelers?

2. South Padre Island, Texas

A long-time haven for Spring Breakers, this Texas beach promises nonstop fun in March – especially if you’re a college student. Plus the barrier island offers up a wealth of water sports and activities.

3. Key West, Florida

If you've got a laidback, exotic getaway in mind, don't leave the country. Just head to nearby Key West for tropical breezes, friendly locals, snorkeling, and an all-around unique spring beach vacation.

4. Cancun, Mexico

This ubiquitous spring break hotspot beach town is teeming with merrymakers every March. Whether it’s the stunning sunsets, the clear blue water, or the margaritas that make Cancun so attractive this time of year, one thing’s for sure – you’ll have a blast.

5. Daytona Beach, Florida

This Atlantic coast beauty was formerly an oasis for rowdy college kids, and is still a great option if you're looking for a less party-central atmosphere.

6. South Beach, Miami

South Beach in Miami is the glamorous place to be this Spring Break. Chill out at the beach all day, hit the clubs at night.

7. Rosarito Beach, Baja California

Cancun isn’t the only beloved spring break beach in Mexico. The beach town Rosarito Beach is just 35 miles south of San Diego, California, and for many, it's close enough for an affordable road trip.
