For college students, there's nothing like the drunken revelry and bad decision making of Spring Break. From the debauchery of binge drinking in Sin City, to the wet-t-shirt contests of Lake Havasu, Arizona there is plenty of fun to regret once the hangover fades. Coedmagazine.com has ranked the nation's trashiest spring break venues based on past factors such as "Girls Gone Wild" shoots, the number of tattoo parlors, Hooters restaurants, liquor stores and strip clubs as well as open container and drinking laws.
"Why trashy? Because acting a fool isn't just par for the course on Spring Break, it's the best way to ensure that you leave with the best stories. We're not suggesting you go so far as to rob a liquor store (a la the upcoming flick" Spring Breakers"), but sometimes sh*t happens," said Coedmagazine.com.
This year the website added five new spots to the rankings making the grand total 15 trashtastic places to spend Spring Break.
Here are the top 5:
1) Las Vegas, Nevada
Vegas is a gambling, alcoholics paradise. Though there aren't the traditional beaches to sunbathe on and do tequila shots at for spring break, there is plenty of debauchery at the myriad casinos and clubs that literally never stops. Not to mention endless drunken pool parties.
2) South Padre Island, Texas
Rolling Stone Magazine called South Padre Island the "largest beach party in the world." The beach boasts resident DJ's and alcohol is legal on the beach, making it even easier to get trashed on cheap booze.
3) Daytona Beach, Florida
Well known for its Spring Break antics, in 2010 Coedmagazine reported that there were 1000 + arrests for underage drinking. There are over 16 beaches and plenty of spring break parties to get your fill.
4) Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
Myrtle Beach is complete with all the typical Spring Break trashiness including the resident Fat Tuesdays and Froggy Bottomz for fishbowls a plenty.
5) Orlando, Florida
Orlando isn't just famous for Disney World, it's one the most popular Spring Break vacations spots in the U.S and its downtown area has plenty of drink specials for Spring Breakers.
