When you're young, single and in the market for fun, there are a few destinations that reign supreme for vacation spots. These hot destinations are packed with parties, fun in the sun and plenty of opportunities to mix and mingle with other young singles. It is important to remember that when planning a girls' only weekend or a trip with the boys, you should head to the destinations where entertainment and dancing the day and night away are priorities. The young, single and free won't be too far behind.
Las Vegas, also known as "Sin City," is one of the top party-packed destinations in the country, as well as a haven for young singles. The city has been transformed into a playground for adults, with its bustling casinos, scandalous nightclubs and sizzling hot themed pools along the famed Las Vegas Strip. Nightclubs such as LAX at Luxor hotel and Tryst at the Wynn hotel stay open until 4 a.m. There, scantily clad men and women dancing under strobe lights and alongside waterfalls put on a show on stripper poles and in cages. Singles "pool hop" during the day, sauntering from one hotel pool to the next with icy foot-long margaritas in hand. Day parties ensue poolside, with people hopping in the pool for games, sunbathing on makeshift beaches or wading in the shallow pool areas.

If you have a passport, or are in the process of getting one, taking a trip to Cancun is a must. This popular beach town lures young singles with its nonstop partying, free-flowing tequila and best body contests. While this Mexican city is mostly popular during spring break, young singles head here year round to get a dose of everything Cancun has to offer. While the Mexican cuisine and sights and sounds of the city are highlights, it is the wild parties along the city's shores that keep young singles coming back for more. Foam parties where soft, fluffy foam pours onto dance floors, along with wet T-shirt contests and open bars, are just a few of the notorious aspects of the Cancun party scene.
Known as the city where the beautiful people dwell, Miami is famous for its high-end party scene, sandy white beaches, and young and single tourist crowd. South Beach is one of the most popular districts within the city, and young singles with extra cash to spend head here to shop along the expensive boutiques on Ocean Drive, sunbathe shoreside on the beach, and mix and mingle on the sand. Nightclubs such as Mansion stay open until dawn, and club-goers clad in minidresses and linen shorts hit the dance floor, shimmying their hips and throwing their hands in the air.
