Whether it’s a chance to de-stress from work or take a break from school a Florida spring break Includes great golf, rest, recreation and dining.

Florida Spring Break Tradition

Did you know Spring Break first began in the state of Florida?

In 1936 a swim team from Colgate University travelled to Casino Pool in Fort Lauderdale to train. By 1938 the city hosted the first College Coaches Swim Forum which proved very successful. Over the years Fort Lauderdale became the mecca for college students to travel at spring break.

And why not? Boasting an average temperature of 73.4°F (23°C) and annual high of 82.4°F (28°C), central Florida is a great spring break destination choice.

And at Mission Inn Resort & Club situated in Howey-in-the-Hills your Florida spring break includes great golf!

Here – a picture perfect place on Lake Harris with lush rolling hills, old orange groves and cypress and oak trees – guests can truly retreat from busy schedules, take a break from routine, and find a variety of ways to relax and refresh.
