Are "spring-breakers" a negative in mid-April/Easter?

I am a teacher and have a late spring break this year. It is in mid-April (ending with Friday being Good Friday). Do spring breakers (college kids) take over Key West at this time? My husband and I have not been to Key West before. Thanks!

We have been in KW at Easter for over 20 years, as we use to have to follow the school schedule. We have never been bothered by spring breakers.

You sound like you won't be hanging out very long on Duval. That's where the wilder bars are, fun for a bit but we like a calmer more laid back atmosphere of The Bight. Lots of bars and restaraunts (many with music), right on the marina and a fun/chill atmosphere. That's where we will be headed in 6 weeks!

Easter bring the families to Key West. There will be kids, but that isn't necessarily a negative. It's a busy time of year, but not crazy busy, and Spring Breakers usually are gone. The weather is great, and I wouldn't hesitate to come at that time of the year.

I'm heading back to key west for Labor Day weekend and that will be my 4th time in just under 2 years and there is always something new and fun. I call key west spring break for adults. A more mature party crowd. I've never seen a fight in my 5 visits. Food is incredible. Key west is so laid back and what liberalism should be, a very excepting crowd. The flats fishin is the best in the world. I'm straight but the gay population ads so much to the character color and art that makes the city great. There is so much good live music it spoils you. You will go home and wish you could just find one band like you hear in key west.

I am planning my Easter 2014 trip (Key West or Las Vegas or Los Angeles)...April 18 is Good Friday, and April 22 is Earth Day...and, yes, April 20---four twenty---is Easter. That's going to be a wild weekend SOMEwhere, just got to figure out where.

We brought both of our kids this past Easter for their 1st visit. We got in on Saturday, the day before Easter. I have never seen it so "slow"....it was nice. Most, if not all, of the college kids were gone by then. From what friends who live & work there told me, if we were there a week earlier we would have had to stay away from certain areas...even during the day.
