Day Trips in Palm Beach Gardens
South Florida is one of the most beautiful and underrated places in the United States. From the incredible biodiversity to the vibrant, lively culture, there’s so much to do and see. So grab the family, hop in the car, and explore all the secrets Florida has to offer (before it gets too hot.)
Lion Country Safari– Florida is unique in many ways, including the weather. It can act as a stand-in for a variety of biomes, making it the perfect place for a safari! With over 900 wild animals to see, visiting Lion Country Safari is a must. Featuring large herds of animals from 6 continents, including lions, giraffes, zebras, rhinos, and more, you and your family won’t want to miss it.
Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum– Florida is so much more than amusement parks– there’s also a rich history surrounding the state. Explore with the whole family the Jupiter inlet Lighthouse & Museum for stunning sunsets, fascinating stories and beautiful hiking. The Museum offers climbing tours of the 120 year old lighthouse and is a great way to take a break from the sun and surf.
Rapids Water Park– Is there any better way to cool off during the summer months than a water park? We sure don’t think so! Rapids is South Florida’s largest water park and is a blast for all ages. Spanning 30 acres of fun, this park has 42 of the best water slides and attractions, from lazy rivers to thrilling rides. It’s a full day of wet and wild fun!
South Florida Science Center– If you’ve grown tired of the sun and the waves, why not take some time to learn something? The South Florida Science Center is a great way to take a break from the heat and learn all about the flora and fauna that make Florida Special. Featuring over 50 hands-on exhibits, an early childhood education room, and a small aquarium full of Florida Marine life, you’ll have almost as much fun as your kids.
Everglades National Park– The everglades are one of nature’s most wondrous sites. Thousands of acres of pristine wildlife, it’s truly an awe-inspiring sight. Take an airboat ride alone or with a tour, but keep an eye out for alligators! If you’d rather keep your feet on dry land, there are countless hiking and cycling trails.
