While Florida has countless attractions and amenities for the locals and tourists alike, there can never be enough activities to keep the kids busy while on vacation. Fort Lauderdale is a great vacation spot for families with its sandy beaches, parks, kid-friendly restaurants, and walking/biking trails. Your friends at Atlantic Beach Clubs II recommend these must-do activities that are fun for the whole family.
1. Butterfly World
This beautiful and entertaining exhibit is perfect for nature lovers of all ages to learn and experience the world of butterflies. Guests enjoy walking through a screened-in aviary that looks like a tropical rainforest and is filled with some two thousand caterpillars and multicolored butterflies. Outside the aviary are extensive gardens including a rose garden, a small pond, a gift shop, and a pavilion containing mounted specimens of exotic insects and butterflies from around the world.
2. Young at Art Museum
Visitors seeking a creative outlet – look no further than the Young at Art Museum with its innovative, hands-on exhibits from around the world. Amidst a bright, spacious atmosphere, children can play the drums in an African village and learn the Japanese art of origami in the Global Village exhibit. Then, it’s on to papermaking in Earthworks followed by customizing objects into art in a psychedelic Pop Art wonderland. The possibilities are endless!
3. Museum of Discovery and Science
Conveniently located in downtown Fort Lauderdale, this museum combines science and local attractions in a unique way that is fun for the whole family. Displays include the Everglades Airboat Adventure, a real coral reef with sea creatures and tropical fish, and a replica of an oak forest complete with mosses, lichens, and air plants that grow without soil.
4. Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi
Kids love exploring the city in the one-of-a-kind water taxi that navigates through waterways over 300 miles. Use it for sightseeing or as a mode of transportation. The captain and crew are a wealth of information and inform their riders with recommendations of where to dine and where to be entertained.
5. Water Sports and Boat Rentals
A great way to stay active at the beach is to try some new water sports or rent a boat and enjoy the water. Race around the coast on jet skis, or take the family out on a banana boat for a fun and unique experience. Kayaking, fishing, and paddle boarding are just some of the adventures you can have together that will make your vacation unforgettable.
