James Franco's character Alien in Spring Breakers has been described as a guy "out to have a demonic good time," and isn't that what everyone is looking for on spring break?
Even if you're wrapping up this year's trip it's never too early to start planning for 2014, so here a few serious party places featured in the new movie because after all, according to Alien, "Bikinis and big booties, y'all. That's what spring break is all about!"
Getting drunk in Cancun might be the preferred Spring Break for most college students, but it isn't for everyone. If you're hoping to have a more meaningful Spring Break experience, United Way's Alternative Spring Break program still has some options available.
The United Way's National Alternative Spring Break in Biloxi, MS registration has already closed, but there are still several local chapters accepting volunteers, like these:
Hugh Jackman brought his wife Deborra-Lee Furness, and their kids, Oscar and Ava, to Paris for spring break this week where they've hit some of the city's best museums and restaurants just like any other tourists.
Yesterday, the actor was spotted chasing after Ava outside the Musée Rodin, which was opened in 1919 in the Hôtel Biron and displays the works of sculptor Auguste Rodin. The museum is actually a great place to bring kids because they can play in the surrounding gardens, not to mention they get in for free! The museum is open between 10 a.m. and 5:45 p.m. daily. Adult Admission ranges from 1€ to 12€. For more information visit Musee-Rodin. fr.

If you’re jealous of your friends bragging about their vacation plans on Facebook, it might be time for you to get out the credit card—don’t worry you’ll make six-figures immediately upon graduation—and book your own trip. Time’s running out, but here’s a few places and few destinations that will get you what you need this season:
· Sun Splash Tours
Sun Splash Tours—sounds like a Spring Break winner, right?—is offering up all kinds of package deals to sun, sand, and alcohol over the next few weeks, but one of their Cancun deals is what got our attention. Sure it’s not the most budget friendly option at roughly $1,300 per person, but it does include airfare from the New York area.
As Congress mulls over lifting the 47-year-old travel ban against Cuba, the Caribbean country is already planning for the influx of U.S. tourists and for the possibility of being the hot new spring break destination for 2011.
Cuba isn't waiting for the ban to be officially lifted before readying itself for the impending tourism boom. At least nine hotels are slated to be built this year, and the country's looking to add about 200,000 rooms. Cuba's also searching for investors to create 10 golf courses and luxury hotels aimed at American tourists. But what about a Copa Cabana club?
Getting drunk in Acapulco is fun, but what if you want something more out of your spring break? This year, there are several volunteer and travel agencies organizing spring break trips with a purpose just for you.
United Way has been on the forefront of the alternative spring break movement and this year is no exception. They have volunteer trips planned from March 28 through April 3 in various locations across the U.S.
Students can choose between helping out nonprofits in Detroit, Michigan, repairing and rebuilding flood-damaged homes in Wabash Valley, Indiana or helping to rebuild and reconstruct communities in Louisiana and Mississippi. The cost of the trips is $150, and you'll have to provide your own transportation. You can find more information at Liveunited.com.

Talk about stealing someone's thunder! This morning, Virgin America announced their plans for twice-daily roundtrips from San Francisco and Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale, beginning in September. By this afternoon, JetBlue had countered with their own suspiciously similar news; they'll be flying one daily roundtrip from SFO to FLL also beginning in November.
We can just imagine Jetblue reading the VA news and exclaiming "oh no you didnt!" Jetblue's flights will begin one day ahead of Virgin's, on the 17th of November versus VA's 18th. Tickets are not yet available for Jetblue's FLL flights. Despite Jetblue's jumping on their route and even a day earlier, Virgin America will have more flights, the whole LAX route as well, and not to mention their precious, precious in-flight WiFi.
Perhaps they'll even race each other in the air?

Who's ready for spring break?!?!!? Okay okay calm down, because you've still got another eight or so months before you can decamp with your whole camp down to Florida's beaches for barely legal fun. But for you snow birds and West Coasters looking to trade the clubs of LA for the clubs of Miami, the partying will start in November as Virgin America has today announced that they'll be flying nonstop from San Francisco and Los Angeles to sunny Fort Lauderdale.
Jaunted thought this would be a VA destination long ago, though we were leaning MIA over FLL.
Tickets went on sale today for flights beginning November 18, and with two direct roundtrips daily from each city, including the only directs between FLL and SFO, we expect them to go like hotcakes. True to their LCC naturewho thinks of them a low-cost carrier anymore, with their WiFi and great service?the tickets will start out rather cheap. We're talking prices from $99 each way for economy and $499 and up for higher classes (those with the white leather massage chairs).
