Yes.  Many families in my area head down to your state, Florida, for the March break which is starting tonight.  Enjoy all of the Canadians!!!  We will enjoy a lighter rush hour for the week but it will still last for up to three hours in the morning and another three hours in the evening.

We own in Destin and the locals hate spring break because the unsupervised kids go wild and have destroyed many properties. It seems every year the new group tries to out do last year's group with outlandish behavior. That said, Destin is not as bad as Panama City for attracting the kids.

 Jennifer Mackay et al:

   I should mention - Panama City Beach cracked down on Spring Break drunkenness a couple of years ago - they now promote the season as "Family Friendly".  

    Fort Lauderdale ditched Spring Break a long time ago (they were the original spring break destination, after getting PR from the 1960 movie, "Where The Boys Are"). 

    Daytona Beach also deterred the troublemakers (interestingly, Bike Week, which draws hundreds of thousands of motorcyclists from across the USA, is tamer than the College Crowd).

    Florida wants tourists and visitors to have a great time - but Florida cities and beach towns will no longer tolerate out-of-control behavior during "Spring Break".
