Seeking NON Spring Break Hotel during Spring Break in Ft Lauderdale area

Jump to last reply

I will preface this by saying we haven't been to Florida in 20 years and have never been to this area before.

Okay, I can't stand the snow and cold any longer so, I impulsively booked a quick 5 day trip to Florida. We're flying into Ft Lauderdale and the plan is for us to catch a few Spring Training games in Jupiter. If possible, I'd like to stay somewhere on a beach. The dates are March 16-20 and I imagine that's smack in the middle of college Spring Break.

I'm hoping there's some area in-between Ft Lauderdale and Jupiter that's not favored by college kids. Is there any way to avoid the whole college break thing other than spending $600+ a night to stay at Ritz or Four Seasons? I was hoping they all go to South Beach but, something tells me that's not the case. We're in our 50's and we'd probably we willing to spend up to $400 a night.

Any ideas?
