Are you staying local for spring break?
Not every family has the luxury of jet setting off to a fabulous ski trip or going to Europe. Living in South Florida is a vacation and I take it for granted sometimes.
There are so many things to do, but where to start?
1. Visit Manatee Lagoon
Manatee Season is in full swing and so is Manatee Lagoon. The manatees are drawn to milder water temperatures from the warm water outflows from Florida Power & Light Company’s adjacent Riviera BeachNext Generation Clean Energy Center. You and your family can take a tour of the facility or take part in some of there events like yoga, art classes and more.
2. Ride A Carousel
Do your kids love to ride carousels?
Downtown in the Gardens has a carousel tucked away in the middle of the plaza. Take a spin on the great blue heron, Florida panther, roseate spoonbill, and other state-specific rides.
Pompano Citi Centre in Pompano Beach, which includes five Florida-inspired creatures has a carousel of fun.
The carousel at Sugar Sand Park in Boca Raton has 30 horses and two chariots and is open daily.
The Palm Beach Zoo in West Palm Beach also has a carousel, but you must have zoo tickets to ride.
3. Visit A Local Water Park In Florida
Planning a trip to a waterpark is a great way to cool off this spring break. There are so many waterparks near me that it may be hard to choose from. You can check out South Florida has some really amazing waterparks and fun for all ages. Here are 8 Water Parks families love in South Florida.
4. Plan A Trip To Orlando
Can you say road trip? For most of us, Orlando is only 3-4 hours away.
Plan some magic for the family and get tickets to visit the Disney Parks. The Magic Kingdom is great for little ones and their new spectacular light show. Animal Kingdom, my new favorite Disney Park, is loaded with fun like the new Pandora- The World Of Avatar or the Kilimanjaro Safari. Don’t forget Epcot and tour the countries along with visiting characters. Disney’s Hollywood Studios is ready for any Star Wars fans in your family with all kinds of light shows and random storm troopers walking the park. Here’s a little extra scoop on some tips when you deiced to go.
Visit LEGOLAND Orlando and ride LEGO® NINJAGO® The Ride or the Coastasaurus. Cool off at the LEGOLAND Florida WaterPark.
5. Head To The Beach
Grab your boogie boards, beach pails and sunscreen and hit the beach. All up and down A1A, you’ll find spots to enjoy. Some may have places to host a cookout or play on a playground. Just be prepared to pay and get a parking spot early.
