After years of having to listen to my brother and friends talk about their college spring break experiences in Miami, I can finally be a part of the conversation. Honestly, being in Miami for a college spring break is something everyone should experience with their best friends at least one or twice throughout their life. The beach, the music, the late night drives blasting PartyNextDoor is an experience that I am dying for. It’ll definitely be worth all the envious swipe up comments on your Snapchat stories and heart eyes under all your bomb pictures from your weekend. Here are the five reasons why you should make Miami the destination of your college spring break.
South Beach: If you’re looking to party and dance with your friends throughout the night, South Beach is definitely the place in Miami where you want to be. So many interesting people are in South Beach for spring break from all over and you’ll be sure to enjoy the dance clubs and bars that the city has to offer.
Beaches: Miami has one of the best clean beach communities in the country. The view is beautiful and the feel of the sand between your feet will definitely get you in the feel-good spirit of vacation. There’s an extra amount of officials hired for spring break weekend to patrol and pick up any excess garbage to make sure the view of the beautiful beach is exactly what you came for.
Luxury Cars: On the streets of Miami you’ll see people flexing their Ferrari’s, Telsa’s, and Lambo’s all weekend to vibe with the scenery around them. You might even get lucky to ride around in a luxurious Uber with the top down or even experience the fast life if a friend rents a luxurious car.
Shopping: If you haven’t found the perfect bikini or dinner outfit yet, you’ll definitely find what you’re looking for in Miami. The stores are always jumping and popping with new arrivals for tourists to find their one-of-a-kind outfits. Plus, if you’re going to South Beach to party that night, you HAVE to look the part. You may even find an outfit hot enough to get into a VIP section for free!
Hotels: The scenery and structure of Miami hotels are absolutely beautiful. You’re bound to sink into Miami’s super angelic white sheets to care for the consequences of your shenanigans from partying into the wee hours of the morning. Depending on the hotel you may get, you could have a balcony or patio with an iconic background for perfect photo ops to show everyone how good you look on social media.
Oh! And I forgot to mention the warm weather and sunny skies, but that should be a given. Now you have six reasons to head to Miami for spring break, so go ahead. Get packing!
