Spring Break

Daytona Beach Florida © Corel
Daytona Beach is conveniently located 54 miles from Orlando on Florida’s Central East Coast, just an hour’s drive from many popular theme parks and other favorite tourist destinations.


Every year around the middle of March, the colleges and universities across the United States close for a week and provide their students with a short vacation known as "Spring break". Hundreds of thousands students flock to Fort Lauderdale and several other Florida beaches for the annual "Spring break" parties. For several weeks, it resembles Carnival on the beach. The bars, beaches and the streets fill with thousands of revelers celebrating around-the clock parties.

If you are planning a quiet family vacation on the beach, then be sure to avoid Fort Lauderdale, Daytona and Panama City during mid March. On the other hand, if you are young, single and looking for some wild excitement that is the place to go.
