Spring Break is an annual rite for college students across the country and Fort Lauderdale Beach happens to be one of the top Spring Break destinations in the nation. In fact, Fort Lauderdale, FL currently ranks fourth as the most popular domestic Spring Break destination, behind Orlando, FL, Las Vegas, NV and Phoenix, AZ. It all started in 1960 with the feature film “Where The Boys Are,” which took place in Fort Lauderdale, FL and popularized the South Florida city as a Spring Break mecca.
Today, hundreds of thousands of college students from across the nation visit Fort Lauderdale Beach each year during Spring Break. Interestingly the legendary Elbo Room Bar, which was featured in the 1960 film, is still popular with Fort Lauderdale spring break visitors today. Located at the intersection of State Road A1A and Las Olas Boulevard on Fort Lauderdale Beach, the Fort Lauderdale landmark features live music daily, along with numerous activities and contests from March through April, when Spring Break is at its peak in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
While a lot has changed on Fort Lauderdale Beach since 1960, college students and tourists coming to the area still choose sleek, sporty vehicles to get around Fort Lauderdale and its surrounding areas. It’s no wonder the 2019 Chevrolet Cruze is one of the top compact cars with Fort Lauderdale car drivers and students. Not only was the Chevrolet Cruze named one of Consumer Reports “10 Top Picks” in 2017, The Chevrolet Cruze was a contender in Motor Trend’s Car of The Year Award in 2017 too.
