Millions of American college students take their annual spring breaks in March, scattering across the nation in search of a place to lie in the sun, shush down a snowy mountain or belly up to a bar and/or dance the night away.
This annual rite of passage continues through March and into early April in America, meaning travelers in the spring break hot spots have to put up with the youthful hijinks as best they can.
The annual spring break excursions started becoming popular more than 50 years ago (remember the old movie “Where The Boys Are”?) and have continued to grow.
That’s great for the age 18-22 set, but for travelers who happen to be spending time in spring break locales it’s not so great.
Among the most popular spring break locales in the U. S. include South Padre Island, Texas; Panama City Beach, Florida; Myrtle Beach, S., Daytona Beach, Fla., and Breckenridge, Colo.
