For some, spring break conjures images of coeds trampling their way through far-flung destinations where it's hot, sunny and …”relaxed.” As for us, we prefer a slightly more tranquil experience, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like to go have some fun as the temperatures climb as well.
We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite spring break-worthy deals, and don’t forget to check out Travelzoo’s new Best Fare Finder, which breaks down just how inexpensive getting to these destinations can be.
Hawaii: Spring break is usually associated with oceans, but probably not so much with things under the water’s surface. Nevertheless, this two-hour fishing, whale and turtlewatching adventure will allow travelers to adjust their focus from surf to sealife. All gear is included, and great views of the Oahu coast can be viewed, as well as filming sites for shows such as “Hawaii Five-0.”
Los Angeles: Hit the beach with perks galore included in this deal from the Portofino Hotel & Yacht Club. A Zagat-rated breakfast, Champagne and strawberries on arrival and two nights at this Redondo Beach destination at half off make this great for a small spring break escape.
Miami: This newly renovated property is pulling out all the stops for spring, offering Travelzoo subscribers rates at as much as 65% off, including welcoming drinks and waived resort fees, which means you have full access to the private beach at no extra cost during your stay. With prices starting at $159, take the hundreds you save and spend it at the hotel’s NINE Restaurant … which is also offering 20% to guests.
Tampa: Not every spring break getaway has to involve hotels and drinks and watersports. Sometimes you just need to relax with the serenity of a nice calm botanical garden. That’s what makes this deal at the Sunken Gardens such a great option – for half off, spend a day among the butterflies and koi fish that make this a destination for locals.
West Palm Beach: Not much says spring break more than fun on the water, which is exactly what you get in spades with this deal from Play Time Water Sports. At $99, four hours on a catamaran, followed by Jet Skiing, banana boats, snorkel equipment would be a great deal on its own. Add unlimited drinks on top of that, and you’ve got the makings of a perfect Florida experience.
