“FLoRiDa is OFF OF OUR LIST!”

Notably absent from our list of top destinations is Florida, particularly Miami, due to recent political developments that have made the state less welcoming to Black students. Also, take note that Miami Beach has cracked down on Spring Break visitors by implementing new rules such as curfews, restricted beach access, bag checks, DUI checkpoints, and expensive parking fees. The NAACP has issued a travel advisory for Black people against visiting Florida stating, “Please be advised that Florida is openly hostile toward African Americans, people of color, and LGBTQ+ individuals.”
