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.

Via GQ: 

That's right—during spring break, Tinder usage on South Padre Island, Texas spikes nearly 2,500 percent. Call it the obvious winner (and, we suppose, loser) here. As of the 2010 census, the island was permanent home to just over 2,800 infinitely patient souls—but it swells to become essentially a small city each March. At its peak, 50,000 students have their run of the place, and from the looks of it, they're all on Tinder.

New Orleans and Miami might post numbers that look pitiful, but that's still up 25 percent, and it's because Tinder usage there is extremely strong throughout the year—and because those cities host what is essentially a year-round spring break.
