Spring Break 2010

Fun Fact – Did you know that Spring Break dates back to the 1930s? At first, Spring Break was a trip in which colleges came to Ft. Lauderdale for swim training in South Florida. Then came the beach parties, drinking, and dancing. Spring Break was then extended to other cities and countries and is celebrated every spring in some exotic location by college students and others, regardless of age, who like to have fun. Here are a few of our favorite Spring Break party towns!
