Spring Break Forever

Spring break is a time-honored tradition for college students across the United States. It’s a time to cut loose, blow off some steam, and forget about the stress of classes, exams, and deadlines. And what better way to do that than by heading down to sunny Southwest Florida?

Hurricane Ian

Unfortunately, this year’s spring breakers might find themselves in a bit of a predicament. With Hurricane Ian making landfall in the area last year, lots of popular vacation spots like Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island have been devastated. While the area is no stranger to storms, this one has left quite the impact, with many businesses and hotels still recovering from the damage. Some Businesses, like Hooked Island Grill, have managed to overcome every obstacle and open in time, while others continue to work endlessly towards the same goal.

Just because Hurricane Ian has caused some chaos doesn’t mean you have to cancel your plans. In fact, this might just be the perfect opportunity to do something a little different.

Explore SWFL

Instead of hitting up the usual, why not explore some of the other attractions in the area? Check out the Edison and Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers, or Naples Botanical Garden, or even take a kayak tour of the Everglades. Naples Botanical Garden is a long-time client of AdVenture. The team is currently working on capturing their latest exhibition, “Frida and her Garden” This exhibition transports visitors to Kahlo’s garden at her home in Coyoacán, Mexico City. A re-creation of La Casa Azul (or the Blue House) is the centerpiece of the exhibit, showcasing Kahlo’s creative refuge and the plants that inspired her life and work. You might even find that you enjoy these off-the-beaten-path activities even more than the typical spring break activities. But don’t worry, you can still enjoy a night out at weekly events being put on every week by Beamin Entertainment & Topshelf Promotions.

Support Local

Plus, by supporting local businesses that are still recovering from the hurricane, you’ll be doing your part to help the community get back on its feet. So go ahead, book that trip to Southwest Florida, and get ready for a spring break you’ll never forget – even if it’s not quite what you expected.
