With more than 400 miles of coastline, ranging from sandy Rivieras such as Pismo to the north and San Diego to the south, to the scenic rocky shores of Laguna and La Jolla, there are hundreds of spring break options for the discerning traveler.
Southern California is a land of mountains and valleys, with outdoor activities ranging across the spectrum, from boating, to biking, to hiking, to land-roving, to horseback riding.
Palm Springs and the desert communities east of Los Angeles have long been a spring break playground offering daily sunshine and evening nightlife. Several casinos within the area feature Las Vegas-style gaming, along with sumptuous buffets and luxurious accommodations.
