I can only say I went as a Non College age person on Pride in 02 Mid March. Lots of college people to Key West and Cozumel and they were having a blast!
I think we left March 16 and they had St. Patty's day in Key West. And off to Mexico, and Belize! What amazed me was how well mannered they were. Sure they drank and partied etc., but they were so courteous to everyone.
