This picture is of St. Pete Beach, where I spent a few days of my spring break. I didn’t have a crazy spring break like I know many other college students did. Most was spent relaxing and having a good time at the beach with a few friends and, surprisingly, no alcohol! Who’d have guessed right? I had a good time and I know my friends did as well. A place I would have liked to gone, however, is on a cruise to somewhere like Jamaica or The Bahamas. The history of spring break starts way back in 1936 when a college swim coach at Colgate University wanted to make sure his athletes stayed in shape over Christmas Break and eventually in the spring. So they went to swim in Ft. Lauderdale every spring and it eventually caught on with everyone, not just swimmers. In 1985, laws were put in place to prevent, what came to be crazy, spring breakers in Ft. Lauderdale. Similar laws were put into place in Daytona Beach about 15 years later. Since then, spring breakers have flocked to spots around the Caribbean (especially those with lower drinking ages), Panama City Beach, and Las Vegas just to name a few.
