We are counting down the days to the official first day of spring.   A lot of us deserve a fabulous spring break vacation simply because we’ve had to deal with one of the worst winters on record.  The sun and warm weather will definitely make your spring break vacation wonderful.  What would make it fabulous?  A beautiful destination with an equally gorgeous beach!

To help you plan a fabulous spring break vacation, here are three great spring break destinations.

  1. Cancun, Mexico. Cancun has been named the ultimate spring break destination. Its long stretches of beautiful beaches, festive nightlife make it a top pick for spring break vacations.  All-inclusive resorts are popular and can be a bit pricey but include food, activities and nightlife.  To book a great vacation package or find things to do visit cancun.com.
  2. Myrtle Beach, SC. Beach getaways are popular vacation choices but they don’t have to be a budget buster.  Voted one of the best East Coast family vacation destinations, Myrtle Beach is home to hundreds of golf courses, amusement parks, roller coasters, race tracks and more.  For a list of fabulous things to do in Myrtle Beach, please visit visitmyrtlebeach.com.
  3. Puerto Rico! Less than a 3 hour hop from Miami, Puerto Rico is known for its beautiful calm, clear beautiful waters and 20ft waves. Puerto Rico is also home to an exciting nightlife.  One of the most popular tourist attractions is El Yunque.  It is the only subtropical rainforest in the U.S. National Forest Service.  A place so indescribable that it must be seen, heard and felt. It’s one of our must-visit destinations.  Since Puerto Rico is a US territory no currency exchange is needed and US citizens do not need their passport.  Check out seepuertorico.com for all things Puerto Rico.
