Spring break isn't just for the college kids looking to get wild and crazy.
Just over the Harbor Bridge we found tons of people from out of town who are seeking a more family friendly atmosphere.
We found this little guy and his family from Florida checking out some of the attractions right here on North beach.
"I love it," Rob Duplaga said. "Its got everything beautiful."
We also ran into Robert Roy and his family from Grapevine, Texas.
His little one, Max, excited to see the USS Lexington.
"He's all fired guy up today. He wanted to get in the theme to see the Lexington," Roy said. "It was great. Really I haven't been out here in 14 years or so. really made a lot of improvements."
And they aren't the only visitors the USS Lexington is seeing.
Staff here says their spring break attendance is up 25% over last year.
The Texas State Aquarium is also reporting strong numbers.
Officials there say they just had the busiest weekend of the year. Their attendance is up 23%.
"We just opened our new dolphin show," Jesse Gilbert said. "A new show for people to come and see, Sting Ray Lagoon, feed and interact with them so it's a good time. Huge week for us."
Spring breakers are also serving up business for local restaurants.
At Pier 99 the food is going fast and tables are full.
"We expect it to stay extremely busy and it has picked up the pace over the past few days," Rebecca Lindsey said. "Enjoying the company of everyone of course."
The increase in business has North Beach seeing green, and the good news is that people say they are willing to spend.
Just ask this group of students from Eagle Pass.
"What all are you going to be spending your money on? "Souvenir, everything else, take as much as possible home," said Ana Moreno.
