Spring breakers close Ocean Drive, MIA advises no more parking spaces in garages

MIAMI BEACH, Florida. – Miami Beach police officers were forced to shut down Ocean Drive at some point Friday night as spring breakers swarmed South Beach. Thousands of people were ready to party and soak up the sights of South Beach.

But what hasn’t been seen, at least until now, is the chaos that spoiled the fun last year in Miami Beach.

In addition to prohibiting drinking on the beach, all floats, tents, large coolers, and loud music are prohibited from being taken onto the sand.

The crowds also have South Florida airports filled with passengers. Miami International Airport is reporting a record number of airport arrivals and announced its busiest day “ever” last Sunday. More than 150,000 people enter and leave this airport every day.

On Saturday morning, Miami International posted a travel advisory on its Twitter account saying its garages were completely full.

Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport reported to an advisor that its curbside valet was full, but self-parking options were available.
