We're 3 guys planning a vacation for this summer.

We're looking for a place loud and alive, with great nightlife, beaches and young people (read less families and old golfers). Any specific hotel/camping suggestions would also be welcome =)

To be more precise we got the first two weeks of August, so if anyone thinks of events/festivals and such, again very appreciated!

Virginia Beach or Myrtle Beach would be my suggestions

You do know this is why New York City exists, don't you? It's NYC for the East Coast--Las Vegas, LA, SF, and Seattle for the west coast, although I should also point out that the band Coldplay is scheduled to play in Washington DC (Verizon center) during the first week of August--so get a ticket and hang out.

The other spots I'd consider for partying are Dayton Beach, Miami Beach (South Beach), Key West (Florida at the farthest southern end point of the US), Wildwood (New Jersey), and Virginia Beach (to a lesser extent).

For camping, the best campground spots for singles are along the Delaware River in Northern New Jersey and near the Outer Keys of North Carolina.

Enjoy

P.S. If you really want to party and you're all at least 21--consider Las Vegas--where its one continuous nonstop party every weekend right through the summer (and most weekdays, too). Like the town's motto says: "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas".
