Spring Breaks
March 11th, 2014 6:02 PM

It's the time of year that not only high school and college students love, but parents as well . . . . spring breaks.  It gives families a chance to get away from the frigid northern winter to have some fun in the sunny weather in Florida or on a cruise.

This year, due to the unrelenting cold and snowy winter, it seems more people than usual have taken a plunge into the south, which is evident here in Central Florida by the increased traffic, crowds at the theme parks, and local restaurants.  This past week was the annual Bike Week at Daytona Beach;  EPCOT is boasting its annual International Flower & Garden Festival, with its millions of colorful blooms, Disney Character topiaries, and live concerts on weekends.  There will be a mighty St. Patrick's Festival at Downtown Disney and a new "Disney Festival of Fantasy" parade is daily at Magic Kingdom Park.

But not only Central Florida is bustling with activity.   Most of the Florida Beaches are jam packed with spring breakers just in time to enjoy the gorgeous 80 degree weather predicted for the next week.  If planning to visit a popular tourist beach destination in March or April, best of luck in finding accommodations!  Most places have been sold out for weeks near Anna Maria Island, Sanibel, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and other popular spots on the Gulf Coast.  Similar situations can be found on the Atlantic coast in places such as Cocoa Beach, Daytona, and Ormond Beach.  Prices have also been increased for most beachfront rooms until after the Easter holidays.

However, there are many places still available in various areas, and many activities to thoroughly enjoy, no matter what the age.     So forget winter and spring into sun and fun.   Welcome to Florida and Spring Break!
