Florida Still Top Spot For Spring Break

By Expert Author: www.cheapfares.com

Cheap travel options, including cheap airplane tickets, discount hotel rooms, and cheap vacation packages have contributed to help Florida remain the number 1 spring break destination as has its weather, beaches, and many entertainment options.

College revelers are arriving in droves to Cocoa Beach and other Florida party hotspots, to blow off classroom steam and drink copious amounts of alcohol while enjoying the oceanfront. Most students from northern states have been cooped up by the epic, bitter winter.

While Florida’s spring break favorite hotspots have evolved over time, with some cities dropping off students’ radar and other popping back on, statewide tourism continues to grow in the first quarter of the year. Out of state visitors during these months came in at an all-time high of 26.3 million in 2013 vs. 19.4 million in 2000, an increase of 36 percent.

2014’s first quarter is on track to shatter last year’s record. The belief is that because of the weather that the Northeast and Central states have experienced this winter that there is pent up demand and Florida is seen as an opportunity to go south and have a good time.

The unusually cold winter in southern states, such as Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee is also responsible for tourists leaving these states to enjoy the warm weather in Florida. Much of the south has not experienced such a bitter weather in a long time.

The Orlando area, including Brevard County, is ranked as the United States’ second most popular spring break destination between March 1st and April 15th. South Florida heads the top 10 list for the third consecutive year, with Fort Myers coming in fourth and Tampa-St Petersburg eighth.

Some travel experts attribute Florida’s spring break attendance increases to parents and children vs. party seeking 20 something year olds. Florida is the Number 1 leisure travel family destination in the United States.

Families of any age can spend anywhere from one day to two weeks fully immersed in the sights and sounds of Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Epcot, LegoLand Florida, SeaWorld, and Universal Studios, to name just a few of the many entertainment parks. Within an hour’s drive families can leave Orlando and play at Cocoa Beach or explore the Kennedy Space Center.

Over the years Daytona Beach and Fort Lauderdale have tamed their legendary wild spring break crowds to become more family oriented destinations. Hotels have set occupancy standards so that 8 to 10 college kids can no longer pack into a single room and dirt cheap hotel deals have been largely discontinued. Today drinking age restrictions are also being enforced.
