Galveston, TX

20 of 22

Spring break comes with more of a PG-13 rating in Galveston, where some of the wildest squeals emanate from Schlitterbahn water park (just wait till you take the Cliffhanger’s vertical plunge). Nighttime concerts and movie screenings under the stars, aquarium shows, rental bikes, and beachfront seafood restaurants keep kids of all ages entertained. It’s especially crowded with spring breakers from Houston, within an hour’s drive away.
