Las Vegas is the No. 1 destination for spring break in the West followed by L.A. and Phoenix, according to bookings at Hotwire. For college kids and adults who want to be where the crowds are, Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, the Mirage, Luxor and Excalibur offer entertainment extras with stays through June.
Go online to Spring Break Unleashed and browse the "available dates" calendar for each hotel-casino to find the cheapest nights. Midweek is the best time to go; rooms shoot up to more than double on weekends.
Spring break packages are available through June 30. (Room prices quoted above exclude tax and are based on availability).
