Spring Break with kids Panhandle

Hi All,

Looking to head down to Florida March 30th for 7 nights with 12 year old kids. We want to avoid spring breakers! We have stated in Seacrest before at this time of year and it was great but our budget is less this year. I am looking at staying in Miramar at the Ariel Dunes or something in the Destin or Okaloosa Island area. Can anyone tell me if there will be spring break college kids in these areas? We also would like to be able to bring some afternoon cocktails to the beach with us but seems like drinking is banned on most beaches. Any information or suggestions appreciated.

Drinking is banned in March on the Panama City Beaches. Walton and Okaloosa allowing drinking on the beaches (if you are 21 or older). Seems that spring breaker numbers are going down every year but truthfully if you are going to see them - Right in front of Whales Tail is where most of them are hanging out.
