This is the second week that Miami Beach officials are enforcing curfew to control the big crowds in town for Spring Break. The causeways leading to the beach were closed and the big attraction Ocean Drive was also closed.

Miami Beach is the place to go for most spring break crowds, but things have changed during the pandemic times.

Hopefully we can get all of the dreamy eyed out of towners that want to vacation where we live to respect the curfew.

The curfew took effect Saturday night from 8 p.m. and is in effect until 6 a.m.

Restaurants must shut down for all operations except for deliveries.

Miami Beach police have still been instructing people back to their hotel rooms after the 8 p.m. curfew, the spring break crowds are a beast.

I’m sure the spring break crews want to party all day and all night, but not in Miami we have rules to follow to keep everyone safe and happy.
