Summer Fun on a Budget
Summer is here, kids are rejoicing and parents are trying to find something to do that won’t break the budget. Here is a list of fun, money-saving, local activities to do this summer:
South Florida is home to several parks that offer a variety of excursions for the entire family. Spend a day at C.B. Smith or T.Y. Park. Flamingo Gardens and Butterfly World allow you to see rare animals at minimal cost. Both C.B. Smith and T.Y. Park have water parks where you can cool off on a hot summer’s day.
More into science and culture? There are several museums for the family to explore in Broward. Young at Art Children’s Museum brings science, art and fun to life. There’s also the Museum of Science and Discovery, the Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum and the Antique Cars Museum. If you are up to the drive, there are several museums in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties as well.
Love the outdoors and animals? Try Miami Zoo, Palm Beach Zoo, Miami Seaquarium, the Little Farm or even Billie’s Swamp Safari for outdoor adventure.
Summer is a great time for the beach or doing things on the water. Stroll along on Hollywood Beach Boardwalk, fish off Dania Pier or ride along a bike path in Palm Beach County. There is also Bluefoot Pirate Adventures where your young adventurers can save the ship from those mean pirates. Water parks, such as Rapids Water Park, offer summer specials.
The ArtsPark at Young Circle in Hollywood has movie nights, glass blowing classes, food trucks, live music and much more. Other activities that you could take advantage of include laser tag, go-kart racing, bowling, miniature golf or even old school roller staking at Galaxy Skateway.
This is the beginning of the endless summer of fun and adventure for the family. Make the most of it. For more discounts on fun activities for the entire family visit the Sun Sentinel Lifestyle section: Summer fun on a budget
