Fort Lauderdale was ranked as a high alcohol destination because 16 percent of social media #SpringBreak posts in the city featured alcohol, according to Project Know. Miami came in third on the alcohol scale, but it was also ranked number one for the most Instagrammed #SpringBreak spot. 

Project Know looked at more than 250,000 Instagram pages to see where college students were going and what they were doing on spring break.
