For pool parties, hen parties, beach parties or just parties you’ll struggle to remember the morning after, Miami is the perfect place to visit. There is no need to wait until the sun sets to get your party on in Miami, with pool parties rivalling those in Vegas but with the added bonus of idyllic beach backdrops. In the evening there are plenty of bars and clubs to choose from along Ocean Drive, where your options range from classy rooftop bars to enormous clubs to dance the night away. Going to Miami with TravelUp is easy but leaving the nightlife will be hard!
The diverse nightlife in Key West offers something for all. A long-standing party island which contains more bars per capita than any other place in the country, Key West is the go-to place for those looking for something a little more alternative they may not find at other party destinations. From carnival-style themes with fire-eaters and tightrope-walkers to drag queen divas who perform without lip syncing to Irish bars booming with live music, you are always sure to have an unforgettable night in Key West!

For all those beach bums out there who think that beach life is much more than laying in the sun (although there is a lot of it), the beach parties in Panama City are something to be reckoned with! There are plenty of bars and pubs situated right along the beach front, which are perfect for evening cocktails whilst watching the beautiful sunset. As the evening goes on the clubs begin to liven up and you can party the night away in the largest nightclub in the USA with a capacity of over 6000 people. Each room in Club La Vela has its own theme with a different atmosphere and ambiance for you to choose from – you can end up having 5 different nights out in just one!
