Top Florida Spring Break Destinations 2013
Posted on March 10, 2013 by admin
Spring break season is upon us, actually is here! Many students head to Florida during this time to let it loose and relax, so we thought it would be cool to see where the hot spots for Spring Break are in Florida.
Probably number one place is Panama City Beach
Panama City Beach is the hottest Florida spring break destination, easily winning the “Spring Break Capital” award! Panama City Beach is one of the few beach communities to welcome spring breakers, so they come… some half a million a year. So do many companies that sponsor special events and hand out freebies — Victoria Secret, The Army, Banana Boat, GEICO and more are past supporters, am sure there will be more this year.
Besides the 27 miles of sugar-white and coffee-colored sand, college students come expecting to party hard. They are never disappointed. There always seems to be plenty of booze, plenty of wild contests and events and MTV is usually on hand to provide plenty of entertainment. Due to how welcoming they are here this is why it is hot!
This amazing 23-mile stretch of wide, white sand beach has long been one of the hottest spring break destinations in Florida. Spring breakers can take a drive down 16 miles of this world famous beach, catch some rays or ride the waves in the Atlantic surf.
Daytona Beach offers some of the wildest nightlife with nightclubs like the Ocean Deck, Razzles and many more.
Other than the beach and sponsored activities planned around spring break, there are few entertainment choices. Daytona Lagoon is a popular water and amusement park and the Daytona 500 Experience located adjacent to the Daytona International Speedway are the most popular. Other activities include water tours and water craft rentals. It is not far from Orlando if you want to hit Disney and the others, just about 60 miles.
Miami’s South Beach
Often referred to as America’s Riviera, South Beach is trendy and hip… THE place to see and be seen in Florida… especially during spring break! South Beach is also a magnet for celebrities either appearing in films or television series being filmed on location. During the day, you might see rollerbladers, models, celebs, vintage cars and Harleys promenade around the streets while tourists gawk from one of Ocean Drive’s outdoor cafes. By night the clubs sizzle.
Spring break in South Beach is like flying first-class instead of coach. It’s first rate and classy. That’s not to say it isn’t fun. The party’s definitely on… but it’s definitely toned down from other spring break locations. Definately hot and pricey!
It’s a long drive, but well worth it once you arrive. Young, old, tall, short, gay, straight… the Florida Keys are as diverse as those who inhabit and visit them. Spring break in the Florida Keys means embracing many lifestyles and activities — including the awesome sunset celebration Just bring plenty of sunscreen and a willingness to try just about anything and follow the rules. Yes, we said rules. The beaches close at 11 p.m., and they are regularly patrolled. The bars on the other hand are open until 4 a.m., but remember you have to be at least 21 to drink. The streets of Key West are usually quiet by that hour though… and you’re expected to be too. Shhh… what happens in the Florida Keys, stays in the Florida Keys. This place is ok, probably alittle safer
St. Pete-Clearwater Beaches
St. Pete-Clearwater area beaches are some of the most beautiful in Florida. The waters of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and white-sand are award winning combinations — from Caladesi Island, America’s No. 1 beach, and its neighboring Honeymoon Island southward to Clearwater Beach and Egmont Key. Not only are the beaches beautiful, but there is so much to do and see that this area is also popular with the spring break crowd.
It’s just 30 minutes to Tampa’s Busch Gardens or The Florida Aquarium and 90 minutes to Orlando’s trio of attractions — Disney World, Universal Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando. Definately very hot!
Another hot spot during this time is Orlando due to all of the parks there. They do know what season it is and do welcome all of the Spring Breakers! So this place is becoming more popular then it used to be and you can hit the water parks.
Another cool area that is becoming hot for Spring Break is the beaches along Jacksonville. Some very cool partying areas and hot beaches! They also welcome Spring Breakers.
Ok, so you may ask when is Spring Break when it comes to Florida?
In general, spring break runs from mid-February to April 20 in 2013
