List of the best Spring Break destinations for college kids, ranked as most awesome and wild. When warm weather hits, the last thing any warm-blooded American 20 year-old wants to do is hang around indoors watching Netflix. Luckily, your school gives you a week off to head to any of the best beaches in the US to let off some steam, get some sun, and do a few crazy things you hopefully won't regret.

This votable list of the best cities for Spring Break includes beaches and towns known for their beautiful weather during the day and best nightlife cities once the sun goes down. It includes some of the best US cities for vacations in coastal states like Florida, Texas, and California as well as cities in Caribbean countries for Spring Break in Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Costa Rica. If you are asking, "Where should I go for Spring Break?" also consider all-season favorites like New Orleans, New York, and the wildest party city of them all, good ol' Las Vegas.

Vote up your favorite vacation cities on this list to help create the definitive list of the top college Spring Break spots, and be sure to add any of the best Florida beaches that are missing.
