Go Big, Or Go Home: Spring Break 2013

By Marlena Padgett on January 23, 2013

Sun or snow? How much will it cost? And obviously, where can we party!? These are three crucial questions going through every college student’s’ mind as we start making plans for our legendary spring break trips. But where are the hottest spring break destinations for 2013? South Padre Island, TX, will have sun and so will Gulf Shores, AL. And skiing in Colorado is always tempting too. But who are we kidding? Everyone knows Panama City Beach, FL, is where it’s at!

Gorgeous Beaches:

Panama City Beach is the queen of all beaches. Stretching for nine miles, its white sand and turquoise water make it a great spot for snorkeling, fishing, body surfing, tanning, and chilling. Bars, hotels and other promotional businesses come every spring break and throw parties constantly up and down the beach, ensuring a steady flow of drinks for all the beach goers.

Spicy Entertainment:

Not only does Panama City have a killer beach, but it also has water parks, amusement parks, ATV rentals, and a crazy night scene. Club La Vela is located right in the middle of all the beach hotels, attracting thousands every night. With past performances by DJ Khaled, and Ying Yang Twins, Club La Vela is sure to spice up your trip.

All Things Food: 

Some great food joints are queezed in between the giant hotels on Front Beach Road. Seafood dives and oyster bars are all over, a famous one being Montego Bay. And for all those who aren’t tasting fish, there are many other restaurants like the master of all pizza places, the Mellow Mushroom.

Affordable Hotels & Travel:

Panama City has its own airport called Northwest Florida Beaches (ECP), just a taxi ride away from the beach and hotels. Southwest Airlines and & Delta fly there, creating lots of booking options. But getting tickets early on is important because spring break rates rise fast! As for housing, there are even more options. From luxury beach condos to affordable hotels and motels, there is a place for everyone. Hotels line the beach, making meeting fellow PC spring breakers easy and convenient.

Lets be honest, there’s only one place to go for Spring Break 2013. Panama City beach, we’re excited already!
