A list of colleges and their dates for Spring Break are in the next column. There are other major events that occur during February and Mar that you should be aware of when you are selecting your Spring Break destination.

These events effect the availability of rooms, airline seats and the volume of automobile traffic into and out of several popular Spring Break locations. Traffic along major beach access roads in Padre Island, Panama City Beach and Daytona is heavy.

Bike Week 2015 - Mar 6th - 15th

If you are headed to Daytona Beach, Bike Week Daytona this year takes place from Mar 6th - 15th. Daytona is packed all week until people head home on Sunday. There are plenty of rooms from Mar 15th until Easter Vacation which starts on Good Friday April 3rd.

Texas Week 2015 - Mar 1st - 7th

If you are headed to South Padre Island, Texas Week take place during the week of ar 1st - 7th.

WMC 2015 Mar 24th - 28th

Easter Weekend 2015 - April 3rd - 5th

Easter weekend effects all of the popular destinations. Most familys that go on a Family Spring Break usually go Easter Weekend as most public schools have Easter Break before or after Easter. This year Easter Celebration will be Sunday April 5th.

Planning Your Spring Break Trip

It will soon be time to booking travel for Spring Break . As usual, most U.S. colleges will break during Mar this year. Easter Vacation will begin with Good Friday on April 3rd and Easter will be on April 5th.

Most K-12 schools in the United States schedule their Spring Breaks to coincide with Easter and Passover In order to make "Family Spring Break" vacations possible, This means that most people going on a Spring Break vacation will be going during the last two weeks of April and so if your Spring Break is in April you need to think about making your reservations earlier.

The major tour operators buy large blocks of rooms from the popular Spring Break hotels and they use charter air services for travel to international destinations, so they are not impacted by the Easter overlap. However, if you are planning to book your own air travel, you should start thinking about buying your tickets pretty soon.

Booking Now Provides More Options...

Hotels are a little less of a problem as "Family Spring Breakers" make an effort to avoid the major Spring Break hotels and condo's plus they can afford to stay at more upscale resort properties. However, as the most popular Spring Break fill up, it will be harder to find space at the surrounding mid-range hotels due to the increased demand.

Yeah, it is a pain to have to pay for a deposit now, but there are advantages to booking early. First you have a better choice of hotels to choose from and you can request specific room amenities like kitchenettes or adjoining rooms. You also have a better chance of getting everybody in your group on the same floor or at least the same hotel.

If money is a problem for you right now, many of the Spring Break Tour Operators have flexible payment plans. Most Tour Operators will allow you to make an initial deposit now and then a single final payment before you leave on your trip. Several of the Tour Operators also have monthly payment plans and in some cases the amount of the initial deposit be reduced.

So, however you are planning to travel, start making your plans now so you can get into one of the popular Spring Break hotels. And if your Spring Break is in April, don't get caught in the collision of Spring Break and Easter.
