The city of Miami, Florida, is preparing for another Spring Break, a time of year when many people choose this destination for relaxation and fun.

The local government recognizes that although these are highly anticipated festivities, this 2024 will see a celebration with more restrictions against the usual indiscipline that occurs during its course.

For this, since the beginning of the month, they have been working on different provisions related to traffic and police control, but recently, stricter ones have been announced.

Curfews, security checks, bag controls at beach access points, early closures of beach entrances, DUI checkpoints, road closures, and arrests for possession of illicit substances and violence will be in place this Spring Break in March.

If you live in Miami or will be moving there to have a good time with your friends in the City of the Sun, here are the local government’s instructions regarding traffic, access, parking areas, among other topics.

Parking Measures

Due to the number of cars that usually move around the city in March, the local government has indicated the following measures:

  • A fixed parking fee of $100 for parking on 42nd Street between Royal Palm and Sheridan Avenues (G6).
  • A fixed parking fee of $30 in the following city-owned parking lots and all surface lots south of 42nd Street: Street and Collins Avenue (G1), 12th Street and Washington Avenue (G2), 13th Street and Collins Avenue (G3), 16th Street between Collins and Washington Avenues (G4), 17th Street and Convention Center Drive (G5), Pennsylvania Avenue and Lincoln Lane North (G9), 18th Street and Meridian Avenue (G7), 18th Street and Bay Road (G10), and 23rd Street and Liberty Avenue (G12).

  • The towing fee for non-residents will be $516 plus an administrative fee of $30 for vehicles towed in South Beach within the limits of 23rd Street and Dade Boulevard.

Beach Access Areas

As important as parking is access to beach areas, so the Miami Beach City Commission determined that beach entrances on Ocean Drive will be limited to 5th, 10th, and 12th Streets.

Security controls will also be put in place to ensure that prohibited items do not enter the beach, and these accesses will close at 6 in the evening.
