Spring Break is Ruined! Panama City Beach Bans Alcohol

drinking spring break news Spring Break is Ruined! Panama City Beach Bans Alcohol
- -

Maybe spring break isn't totally ruined but the Panama City Beach City Council has just voted to ban alcohol consumption during the month of March in 2016. That does put a damper on one of the most popular activities of the college spring break season. Those in favor of the ban argue that the money brought in by spring breakers does not outweigh the the overall negative impact of the month of drunken chaos that comes with them. The ban is meant to discourage wild spring breakers in an effort to bring in other types of tourists, like families, who will spend more money and cause less damage.
