The Wildest Spring Break Beaches in the World

By Staff Writer

What began as a swimming coach trying to get his team to practice in Florida’s first Olympic sized pool somehow turned into an integral part of the American tradition. In 1936, Sam Ingram had no idea what he would start when he brought his team down from Colgate University to Ft. Lauderdale’s Casino Pool: In 1938, the city smelled money and decided to host its first College Coaches’ Swim Forum, in which more than 300 swimmers competed— thus Spring Break was born.

Of course, it took a few years and steps to completely catch on, but soon droves of college students were showing up to Ft. Lauderdale to watch and compete in the annual forum, and then soon, they were just showing up to enjoy the beaches and the city's exciting nightlife. And now, each school year in the spring, millions of American students look forward to the glorious and wild week that is Spring Break.
