White sands, warm days, great waves, and spring breakers on the beach. It's that time of year again in Florida. After months of icy cold weather, it's time to head to the beach. And that's just what many are doing. Whether you're a college student, a family looking for a warm vacation, or just someone that wants to get away for a while - Florida is the perfect destination.
Daytona Beach is one of the few beaches that still allows cars on the beach. For $5 a day, you can drive on the beach to the nearest party or the location of your destination. There are Spring Break activities on-going up and down the Daytona Beach strip.
Start at the Daytona Beach Pier (the longest pier on the east coast of the United States). For the party crowd, the Ocean Deck Survival Oasis Beach Party offers live bands, incredible drinks, and free prizes. Then just follow the crowds to fun on and off the beach.
Just west of Tampa, Clearwater Beach is known for its fine white sand. It is dotted with bars and clubs, ready to start a memorable Spring Break. Shephard’s Beach Resort was voted on of Florida Beach Bar’s top 10 and boasts outside tiki bars and the Wave night club. And just a short drive to the south is St. Petersburg Beach – another fun destination for Spring Break.
Home of the hit movie “Where The Boys Are” and the original Spring Break party central, Fort Lauderdale is still home to the Elbo Room bar, just like was in the sixties. But the city has changed its crazy activities to promote a more laid-back, hit the beautiful beaches and relax mood.
South Beach, Miami
Lovingly known as SoBe, South Beach in Miami is home to those that want to spend some serious cash on Ocean Drive (Miami’s Rodeo Drive), roll around town in Rolls Royces, and just “be seen” at all the happening places. With hotel rooms starting off at $300 a night and going skyward, SoBe is the trendy, chic place to spend Spring Break. It can also be fun to just watch.
Other fun beaches for a Spring Break vacation from the cold include Pensacola Beach, Panama City Beach, Fort Myers Beach, and, of course, Key West.
