When it comes to Fort Lauderdale Spring Break, the party scene in is second to none in the USA. During the day, the main party is at the beach as college students descend on the warm sand for a day of partying and hanging out with other Spring Breakers from across the country. The main Fort Lauderdale Spring Break party zone stretches along the strip from Las Olas Boulevard to Poinsetta Street and is ready for the masses.
Across A1A and all of the beach antics, the strip is lined with cool bars, fun food joints, and souvenir shops. The top bars include the world famous Elbo Room, Rock Bar, and Blondies Sports Bar. McSorley’s Beach Pub and Lulu’s Bait Shack are other fun bars further down the strip.
Like any other place, you’re going to run into pricey hotels during Spring Break in Fort Lauderdale. Some people go the Airbnb route, take advantage of relatives’ condos, or even get cheaper hotels off the strip but that ultimately ends up costing more than originally planned. STS has secured hotel rooms in prime locations on and near the beach that are affordable for any Spring Breaker! By staying around the strip you’re eliminating any need for a car because your hotel will be within walking distance of all the action.

A block back from the beach, you can find more reasonably priced smaller inns and hotels. Many have been recently updated with their own flair and styles.

Party Smart… Keep Fort Lauderdale Clean
Over the past few years, the Fort Lauderdale police have been very tolerant of Spring Break. They hang out along the strip to keep the peace and safety but will mind their own business if you mind yours and let you party the day away. Another cool thing about Spring Break in Fort Lauderdale is the general respect for the beach. At the end of the day, Spring Break partiers take a moment to pick up their trash and leave the beach ready for another day of partying. Please do your part to keep this tradition going!
