Fort Lauderdale – Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis ‘welcomes’ spring breakers as city makes preparations for annual party.

Miami Beach’s “divorce” from spring break after a crime-crazed 2023 season will likely push party seekers about 30 miles up the coast to areas like Fort Lauderdale, which has the largest beach in Broward County.

And officials seem to publicly welcome the annual bash as they prep for the sudden influx.

Broward County has already beefed up security by enforcing higher parking fees, setting up license plate readers and security cameras, and coordinating local and county law enforcement to establish a highly visible presence.

Within the county, Fort Lauderdale is expected to be this year’s hot spot, and the city’s mayor, Dean Trantalis, said he “welcomes all visitors all year round,” but that doesn’t mean there aren’t contingency plans in case fun in the sun spirals into rowdy chaos and crime.

Fort Lauderdale has a spring break web page calling it “organized fun.” 

“Welcome, Spring Breakers! We’re excited to have you,” it says. “We want you to enjoy everything that Fort Lauderdale has to offer. But we’re setting a few ground rules to make sure this Spring Break season is enjoyable for everyone.”

It notes that alcohol, coolers, tents and tables, scooters and live music will be limited in certain places throughout March, with increased police presence, a beach sweep/cleanup each day at 5:30 p.m. and more enforcement in entertainment areas from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. each day.

The city also lays out “beach areas of interest,” though, along with “spring break ride share zones” and a free transportation service.
