Whether you're a beach person, a desert rat, a mountain lover, a country soul, or a big city fan, there is a spring break resort for you in Southern California.

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.

The wine countries of Temecula and the Santa Inez Valley offer winery tours, tasting rooms and fine dining, along with world-class spas and accommodations.

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.
