Slumped over drunk on the beach, necking beer on hotel balconies and performing lewd dances in front of baying crowds, these are the Spring Break shenanigans that students don’t want their parents to see.
Over the course of four days in Panama City Beach, DailyMail.com saw college kids get so drunk they needed medical attention, flash their breasts in public and, in one incident, appear to have sex pressed against the barriers in a nightclub.
More still were seen getting drunk day and night, with some downing beer through funnels and others doing shots in the pool to chants of ‘drink, drink, drink, drink!’ — all despite the city banning drinking on the beach.
This week, 1.3 million students, most aged between 18 and 21, head out on vacation, with a further 2.5 million set to follow on Friday.

For Panama City Beach, the annual influx means a $40m payday — approximately $2m of which is funneled into city coffers via a statutory bed tax.
Bars and restaurants across town benefit greatly from the Spring Break shenanigans, including Dirty Dicks Crab House, whose slogan is ‘where diners come to get crabs’.
Across the country, the student dollar equates to a $1bn boom for tour operators, bar owners and club promoters, according figures prepared by University of New Orleans economist John Laurie.
But not everyone is delighted to see the students, including the local police department which is charged with enforcing rules introduced in 2015 banning drinking on the beach following a spate of rapes — 42 between 2007 and 2014.

Figures for this year are not yet available, although a total of 18 arrests were made in Panama City Beach over the weekend of February 3-5 — the majority for underage drinking and disorderly conduct.
