Panama City, FL
Spring breakers have shown up in Panama City for as long as anyone can remember—if they can remember anything after a bleary, drunken week in the Florida panhandle region. The area’s reputation was cemented by an MTV series in 2007, but the real thing keeps playing out spring after spring as thousands of students roll into town with a lot of beer and a little clothing. If you manage to wake up in time, you can partake in parasailing and Jet Skiing. If you’re more of a night person, clubs that include an outpost of the Coyote Ugly Saloon—New York’s cheesiest, dancing-on-the-bar watering hole—will fulfill your wildest MTV fantasies. Jersey Shore alum DJ Pauly D is even making an appearance this spring at Club La Vela: fist pumping is very much encouraged.
