I'm planning on travelling to USA for three weeks next late march/early april.

I'm planning on travelling to USA for three weeks next late march/early april. I was thinking going to New York first, then Florida for spring break to experience the party scene (it's during spring break, right?). Not sure but i'd maybe like to see a third city too. Any recommendations? I was thinking maybe Los Angeles.

Do american big cities have a hostel scene or should i book hotels? I'm a single 30 year old white doctor from northern europe and i look young so i pass for a young person. Any recommendations for where i should go for spring break? Or what to do in New York. I'm a big fan of American Psycho and 80's yuppie scene.

      Be warned that almost everything in NY City is expensive.
      >Florida for spring break
      btw if you can't vibe with drunk morons you'll stick out no matter how long you look. Also, I think virtually every beach city in Florida has gotten fed up with dumbass misbehaving college kids and cracked down hard on rowdy beach activities.
      But if you just want to enjoy some beautiful beaches and great weather, Panama City Beach is really nice in April (after spring break is over).

      Spring Break is march, this site has a listing of dates for individual US colleges:

          Yeah I guess I didn't explain it very well. I didn't want to be too discouraging. This anon elaborated better:

          Look, your questions come off as poorly researched. It's WIDELY known that hostel culture in the U.S. is virtually non-existent.
          [...]
          The US isn't like Europe. In Europe people will go on vacation and mingle with other vacationers and will go to pubs and sing with complete strangers. Americans don't do that. People mostly socialize among their peer group. You're from scandanavia so I think its more like there than say, southern europe. Spring Break is where good looking, rich college students go to meet and hook up with other good looking rich college students. Maybe not all from the same college but most of them are part of the greek (fraternity/sorority) scene and will immediately spot you as an outsider as [...] said. However, europeans are generally viewed as "cool" by Americans and you may get a pass and get invited to hang out and party with people just for being from europe (but only good countries like France or Sweden not shit countries like Poland/Bulgaria).

          As far as visiting different cities, its totally feasible to visit LA, NYC and Florida within a 3 week span, just be aware of the fact that flying in the US kills an entire day. In the US getting to and from the airport takes a long time and security/check in takes a long time. Plan on at least an hour to get to LAX, be there 2 hours before departure, its a 5 hour flight to NYC, another hour to get out of the airport into NYC then its a 3 hours later time zone so if you've left LA in the morning its already night when you're in NY.

          [...]
          Spring Break isn't all at the same time. If you google "biggest party schools in the US" you can just find out when their spring break time are. They usually are in the weeks before easter though, late march. Florida is mostly east coast going there so maybe when big schools there like Alabama or UNC go on spring break. Daytona, PCB, Miami are popular for Spring Break, Gulf Shores, AL too and some places in Mexico like Cancun.

          The spring break scene is chaotic but it's a big social network. Small groups book vacation rentals together and coordinate activities with other groups they know either from their school or from other connections. There's lots and lots of mingling but it's more organized that it looks from the outside.
          And yes there are bawds but they are competing for (in their eyes) mega chads (athletes, rich scions, or failing that a fricking DJ or something). Look up the Karen Owens Duke Frick List for the kind of guy spring break bawds actually spread their legs for.

          I'm not saying you have no chance, just want to set appropriate expectations.

          Even in scandinavia people hang out with strangers when drunk, which is exactly what people are on spring break. I don't say that i'm proud of it but i've been to student parties, clubs and festivals, i know how the dynamics. I know how to present myself as a cool and exotic white foreigner from a faraway northern land.

          You guys have no idea how much of a social guy i am. I already frick bawds on the regular at my home country. But i'm not some moronic arab that thinks that western countries are all bawds fricking whatever they can.

          I live in Florida and can't even tell you which beach to go to anymore.

          As another anon said, cities have started to crack down on drinking on the beach during March and April. Too many people moved here during covid and fricked things up.

          >Daytona
          Great beach, but spring break coincides with biker week there. Hope you like 60 year old women with tramp stamps and old men who LARP as hell's angels members.

          >Panama City Beach
          This used to be THE spot for spring break. Every SEC school would poor in there but they cracked down even before covid.

          >Miami/South Beach
          Same thing. Nignogs ruined it so they've cracked down I believe.

          I would do research on Gulf coast beaches like Clearwater & St. Pete.

          You can fly to Tampa from NYC/EWR very easily, rent a car, and get a hotel directly on the beach. The whole coast from clearwater to siesta key is usually fricking crazy during spring.

          Thanks for the analysis.

    Hostels are almost non existent in the US. You should also make sure understand how long it takes to travel from a place like Florida to LA before you commit to that.

      Yes.
      >Do american big cities have a hostel scene or should i book hotels?
      Not really, but nyc/la/Chicago might have something like a hostel that are still decent.

      This anon is right so I assume you'll be flying.

      >siesta key
      Forgot to mention that you need to book way in advance though if you plan on staying directly on beach / barrier island.
