What’s the first U.S. city that comes to mind when you think of spring break? Miami, naturally. The city, specifically South Beach, has long been a favorite destination for people looking to soak up some rays (hello, Miami beaches!), party until the sun comes up (did someone say South Beach clubs?) and take advantage of the great weather. If you’re going to blow off your responsibilities for a week, there’s no better place to do it than Miami. Though it’s not just college students who have a blast in the 305. The same goes for parents, who will surely find lots of fun things to do with kids in Miami. Whether you’re traveling south or staying in town, we have your complete guide to spring vacation.

When is spring break?

Spring break takes place March 2020 through April 2020.
