Cheapflights.com's Top 10 Spring Break Destinations

Students Get Ready to Hit the Beach (or the Slopes)

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - February 3, 2011) - Students across the nation are counting down the days until they can put away their books and pack their bathing suits as they plan their Spring Break holidays. Cheapflights.com, the online leader in finding and publishing travel deals, has put together a list of Top 10 Spring Break Destinations to help make planning easier. Whether looking to hit the beach, the nightclubs or the slopes, Cheapflights.com has an inexpensive getaway just for you.

Popular student hotspots in the Caribbean, Mexico, SoCal and Florida that make Cheapflights.com's Top 10 Spring Break Destinations include Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Punta Cana, Miami and San Diego. Below are five more destinations that are definitely worthy of Cheapflights.com's Top 10 list:

Montego Bay -- Jamaica's busiest airport and cruise-ship port bring loads of tourists to Montego Bay all year round, but a certain clientele appreciate it most during Spring break season. Sunny days are well-spent along Fletcher Beach and Doctor's Cave Beach, while partygoers find countless clubs on Gloucester Avenue, (referred to as "hip strip") at night. Search and compare cheap flights to Montego Bay.

South Padre Island -- Any location that offers Mardi Gras Tuesdays -- every Tuesday -- screams spring break to us. Just off the Gulf Coast of Texas, South Padre Island is all the fun of sun and social scandal, but right at home within the States. Students love Coca-Cola Beach, open every day for festivities and revelry (so, choose another beach for peaceful sunbathing). Lots of cheap food and all-inclusive offerings are available here for an economical week of celebrating. Search and compare cheap flights to South Padre Island.

Panama City Beach -- If Cancun were in the U.S., it would have to duke it out with Panama City Beach for the title of best spring break city. Celebrities like Kenny Chesney, 50 Cent and Sean Kingston have made appearances in the past to hail this Floridian locale as a party mecca. Walk along the main strip, and you'll find a steady concoction of beach bars, hotels, mini golf centers, souvenir shops, and more beach bars. Dive into its renowned wreck-diving site for an alternative daytime activity. Search and compare cheap flights to Panama City.

Orlando -- Think Orlando is just a minivan destination? Think again. With plenty of all-inclusive resorts with glamorous pools and lots of food and drink, Orlando makes spring break a secret hot spot for students. Universal Orlando is more than just kiddies and snow-cones, too: The attraction hosts multiple Mardi Gras nights with parades, street performers, Cajun cuisine, free concerts and other free events with your ticket purchase. Search and compare cheap flights to Orlando.

Montreal -- Go ahead, buck the trend. You won't find sun and sand here, but you will get a better exchange rate, a legal drinking age of 18, and a whole lot of European charm on top of amazing food. It's like Paris on the cheap, but without the jetlag. Ski the Laurentians by day, and hit one of 300 nightclubs, bars, pubs or lounges by night. Search and compare cheap flights to Montreal.
