A more family friendly travel destination has bumped Las Vegas from the top spot of the hottest spring break vacation locations on one travel website.
After holding steady at No. 1 for two years, Las Vegas moved to No. 2 as Orlando moved into lead spot on Orbitz.com’s list of the most popular destinations for the 2011 spring break season.
Orlando ranked at No. 5 last year.
Four of the most popular spring break locations on the travel website are in Florida this year, including Fort Myers and Tampa, which didn’t make the top 10 last year.
Other top locations on last year’s list included Cancun, Honolulu, New York and San Francisco.
According to a survey conducted by Orbitz.com, 88 percent of respondents said they try to avoid well-known college spring break locations.
The majority of respondents said they plan to spend either less than $500 per person or between $1,000 and $2,000 per person on spring break this season.
This year, MTV has chosen the Palms as the headquarters for the network’s spring break debauchery. The resort is offering packages for as low as $119 for the second weekend of March, which includes nightclub access and a hotel room.
Mandalay Bay has the same offer for $102.
