What’s that buzz in the air? Oh, it’s Spring Break in Rocky Point! Long a favorite spot for college kids clamoring over the border to the beach, Spring Break opportunities now embrace whole families looking for a little Spring solace by the sea. So, whether you’re doing the “woo hoo” Spring Break bash with the 18+ crowd in local watering holes, or taking in the sun, sand, sea lions, seashells, and shopping with the family, it’s time to run down the weekend!
