7. Spring Break Classic: Relax at the Beach
One of the top places to visit during spring break is the beach. Sunbathers and surfers alike head out to the shore to soak up some sun during their vacation. Lucky for you, Florida has plenty of beaches.
The closest beach to Orlando is Cocoa Beach. Learn to surf at Cocoa Beach Surf School, then practice your skills on the water. You’ll be a pro in no time.
Another option on the other side of Florida is Clearwater Beach. As the name boasts, this beach has beautiful, clear water and white, sandy beaches. Pull up a chair or lay out a towel to enjoy this gorgeous beach.

Next, head to the Fire Lounge to warm up with some snacks and drinks. This is truly an experience you won’t forget.
Another International Drive favorite is the phenomenon of escape rooms. This is the perfect opportunity to test your mental fortitude.
There are many rooms to visit with different themes and skills of difficulty. If you are celebrating spring break with family or a group of friends, this is an especially great activity where you can have fun and find out how well you work together under pressure!
