Tips and tricks for visiting Fort Lauderdale

Watch out for spring break partiers

Fort Lauderdale attracts large crowds of college students looking for beach fun, alcohol, and excitement during their spring break. At this time the beaches are flooded with boisterous crowds, wild parties, and loud music. If you don’t like this sort of thing, you should avoid visiting Fort Lauderdale during the spring break season.

Be beach ready

Respect the beach warnings, especially during hurricane season. Watch out for needlefish and jellyfish that sometimes make an appearance, even in shallow waters. Cover yourself with plenty of sunscreen, stay hydrated, and try to rent umbrellas while sitting on the beach. The Florida sun is warm and welcoming, but you may be surprised at how quickly it can give you a sunburn or heat stroke.
