Mar 11, 2013 —  College students have wrapped up their midterms and postgrads have finally thawed out of their frozen work world winter slumps. Birds are chirping somewhere up in the sky and that last bit of exhaust fume-blackened snow has melted and drained into the sewer. In places like Chicago, Boston, and New York, city-dwellers dust off their finest pairs of shorts, ready to don them for the next sunny, 60-degree day.

All across America, folks are in full spring break mode, even if they aren’t headed to tropical locations like Cancun, Cozumel, or Jamaica. That’s because there are numerous bars, clubs, and lounges across the country where restless partyers can down gigantic margaritas, find a partner on a sweaty dance floor, and pick their favorite festive songs from a stacked jukebox.

Madam’s Organ Blues Bar in Washington, DC draws crowds as diverse as the United Nations – or for our purposes, Panama Beach – that let loose nightly to live music as they drink draft beer out of mason jars. Similarly, The Happy Ending in Los Angeles feels like a spring break episode straight out of Jersey Shore, where rowdy crowds have one too many vodka Red Bulls while looking for a one night stand.

Americans don’t have to head south of the border or jet to the Caribbean to blow off some steam come spring break time. The best place to get crazy as you prepare for summer might just be around the corner.
