Miami Beach’s Spring Break Changes Remain in Effect This Weekend

For those of you that visited Miami Beach this past weekend, you may have noticed some changes in regards to the roads and traffic patterns. As a means of tackling the massive numbers of college students that visit the barrier island for spring break, the city has some changes in place to keep things orderly.
As was the case last weekend, this weekend visitors will notice some closures. For starters, Ocean Drive between 5th and 12th Streets will be closed after a certain time. The MacArthur and Julia Tuttle Causeway will only have a pair of lanes moving, so you may be better off taking advantage of either the 79th Street Causeway or the Venetian Causeway.
For those that are planning on using scooters to get around, the city is now able to disable scooters to reduce the chances of any reckless scooter drivers. On an unrelated note: also remember that certain roads around the city will be accessible only to residents of Miami Beach or employees of businesses on the barrier island.

Miami Beach’s Rules for Spring Break

Will you be heading to Miami Beach for spring break? Welcome! The barrier island is one of the best places to spend spring break. If you haven’t read up on the latest rules about visiting the beach, there are a couple of things you may wish to be aware of.
For starters, drinking alcohol on the beach is prohibited. Visitors that are planning to spend the day sunbathing should also be aware that tents, coolers, tables, and inflatable devices are also off-limits and will not be allowed on the beach. Depending on the section, the city may also enforce occupancy limits. Should these areas reach their capacity, visitors will not be allowed to enter that area.
In the past, Miami Beach has closed off Ocean Drive to deal with traffic and improve pedestrian safety. This year is no exception. During peak hours, the popular roadway may be closed entirely or a portion of it may be closed between 12thand 5thStreet. There will also be limits on the streets visitors can access, which may be open only to Miami Beach residents or employees and patrons of local businesses.

Useful Tips for a Deep Sea Fishing Day

No matter your familiarity with deep sea fishing, there is always room for learning something new about deep sea fishing. Whether you’ve never picked up a fishing rod in your life or you’re looking for ways to improve, here are a couple of tips worth considering.
Vary the lures. If you’re fishing in saltwater, it’s going to prove trickier to grab the attention of a fish due to the lower visibility. Try and get into the habit of utilizing lures that emphasize bright colors as these are likelier to be noticed by various species of fish, potentially improving your odds of a catch.
Practice patience. This one is aimed at beginners. If the fish aren’t biting right away, resist the temptation to immediately move somewhere else. With big game fish, it may take time before there is any activity. Sometimes sticking around is better.
Look for other animals. Do you see a bunch of seagulls swooping down into the ocean? This could be a sign that there are game fish lurking nearby. If you see lots of feeding activity, there are strong odds some fish are in the area.

The Fascinating History Behind President’s Day

On Monday, the country will once again observe President’s Day, a federal holiday. The holiday is typically celebrated on the third Monday of February and is intended to honor the first man to serve as President of the United States: George Washington. Ever since Congress spearheaded the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, President’s Day has been observed between the 15th and 21st.
A fun fact of President’s Day is in its name. “President’s Day” is actually the colloquial name for the holiday, with the official name of it being, appropriately, Washington’s Birthday. Though it’s intended to honor Washington, the holiday has since come to serve as something of an occasion to honor current and former individuals that have served as president. Furthermore, the name of the holiday varies in different states, being also known as Presidents' Day or Washington's and Lincoln's Birthday.
A famous legend about George Washington was when he chopped down his father’s cherry tree as a child after being gifted a hatchet. When his father confronted him, young George admitted it, uttering his now famous line, “I cannot tell a lie.” As a result of this story, cherry pie is a popular food consumed on President’s Day.
