A little spring break fun in the sun can be a dangerous thing.

Orlando wins this year’s dubious honor as the most dangerous spring break city in the USA.  The rankings are compiled by the AVVO website, which offers free ratings and profiles of lawyers and doctors, and is based on violent crimes data, FBI crime statistics, car crashes and murder rates.


“Spring break is a time for fun but you also have to be careful,” says AVVO CEO Mark Britton. “AVVO’s mission is to help people make more informed decisions and where you go for spring break is an important one.”
