Spring break in Ft. Lauderdale has gained legendary status and from the spring break infographic you can see why. If you want to kick up your usual debauchery several notches, then a trip to the east coast of Florida is the place to do it. Sex, alcohol and police altercations all rise substantially. Students overrun the town and it has gotten so bad that in 1985 the mayor at the time stated students were no longer welcome. Seems that hasn’t deterred many of our future leaders from continuing on their mission for self indulgence.
Don’t feel like sleeping around and getting drunk? There are lots of other things to do in Florida:
- The Sunken Gardens has become a landmark in the Clearwater area, a favorite among both locals and tourists. After avid gardener and resident, George Turner filled seven acres with over 1,000 flowers and plant in 1935, he opened the area to the public. The entire garden is located 15 feet below the street level and also boasts intricate water features and is home to scores of butterflies.
- The Treasure Island neighborhood offers both white sandy beaches and exciting nightlife attractions.
- Explore nearly 245 acres of marshlands, forests and shoreline just south of the St. Petersburg city limits. Walking tours during both daytime and evening hours allow you to see native wildlife, such as the popular Florida alligator. The park also offers children’s activities and day camp experiences.
- The Pier Aquarium is a splendid way to end an afternoon spent enjoying the beach, or rainy day alternative. Discover native marine creatures, vegetation and plants. Interactive exhibits may be designed to educate children, but are entertaining for adults as well. Sunday is the busiest day to visit the aquarium due to the reduced admission rates.
- If you are in the mood for adventure, get a bird’s eye view of the Gulf Coast at Safari Choppers. The pilot whisks you over the Greater St. Petersburg area while sharing insight on both the history and attractions of the region.
- Get off the beaten path and watch local surfers dance with the waves. The beach and adjacent picnic area are clean, serene and very popular with shell collectors.
- Orlando Themepark Attractions can help you find tickets for these and other attractions and activities in Florida.
