  • 2. South Padre Island

    South Padre Island is the ultimate spring break destination for party enthusiasts. Every year, students on break from school and college head to South Padre Island for partying on the beach. The island hosts an annual spring break concert — complete with DJs. Families will also find plenty of things to do here, including dolphin watching, sailing, kiteboarding, and a wide range of excellent dining options.

  • 3. Port Aransas

    Also known as Port "A" among vacationers, it often gives South Padre Island a run for its money as a popular Spring Break destination. While Port Aransas's beaches offer many of the typical Spring Break activities, the nearby Mustang Island is loaded with condos and plenty of white sandy beaches. On the Mustang Island, watersports enthusiasts can enjoy kayaking, while adventure addicts will love hunting for hidden treasure.

  • 4. Galveston Island

    Sun yourself on this spectacular Gulf Coast island. Stewart Beach gets packed with visitors during spring break, so if you feel a bit overwhelmed, take a walk through the Seawall Boulevard, or take part in festivals and concerts on East Beach. Relax on sandy beaches, get an adrenaline rush at Schlitterbahn Water Park, or explore the exhibits at Moody Gardens. There is plenty to do and see in this coastal town.
