#2. Galveston, TX
This top spring break destination has some of the best surfing in the nation. Those looking to cool off while getting their adrenaline pumping can chase down huge waves via Tanker Surf Charters, where surfers are taken to the ship channel to surf on waves generated by large tankers. For even more thrills, you can brave the world’s tallest water rollercoaster at Galveston’s Schlitterbahn Island Water Park. Aptly named MASSIV, the coaster towers at 81 feet tall.
Not into thrills? Galveston Water Adventures offers a more relaxing way to beat the heat with their two-hour BYOB sunset cruise. Plus, thanks to this coastal city’s spring break reputation, there are plenty of frozen cocktail offerings everywhere you go, including the Rum Shack with the best frozen mojitos in town.
