The Bahamas

Spring breakers flock to the Bahamas for the white beaches, crystal-clear water and live entertainment at mega-resorts. Paradise Island, home to Atlantis, a world-famous resort and casino, is a popular stop in this island chain. So are the Exumas, known for their tourist-friendly swimming pigs, along with Freeport on Grand Bahama and Nassau on New Providence Island. Shown here: Breezes Bahamas in Nassau.

Las Vegas, Nevada

OK, Las Vegas isn’t tropical, but it’s warm and sunny and the nightlife, casinos and poolside parties on the Strip are practically nonstop. If your spring break falls in March and you're of legal age, place your bets and watch the March Madness games at Westgate Superbook or Cica Sportsbook. Drive a Ferrari at Exotics Racing, zipline or hit the wave pool and 11-acre beach with real sand at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Dominican Republic

Spring break usually centers around Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, where you’ll find great weather (the daily spring average is 86 degrees F), sandy beaches and clear water. Live DJs at Pearl Beach Club keep the party going around the infinity pool while mixologists craft cocktails with local fruits and spices. When you're ready to get out of the sun, play the slots, table games and video poker at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (you must be at least 18 years old) or watch awesome acrobatics and other incredible shows at the Coco Bongo.
