Sawgrass Recreation Park

Sawgrass Recreation Park is a popular destination in Weston, Florida, featuring airboat rides, animal exhibits, fishing, camping, and a kid’s zone. During the daytime airboat adventure, visitors take a 30 minute tour of the Florida Everglades, guided by a knowledgeable captain who will share much information about the area, as well as point out the different kinds of wildlife along the way. The airboat tour also takes place at night, and this tour is 60 minutes. There are also several exhibits to enjoy, including the reptile exhibit with turtles, iguanas, and alligators, in addition to the Glades Exhibit with pgs, tortoises, ducks, and peacocks.

Lucille’s American Café

Located in Weston, Lucille’s American Café is a prestigious diner with 1940s theme combined with modern times.

Some menu favorites are the handmade chips with homemade ketchup, baked potato soup, meatloaf, and carrot cake. There are also a variety of salads, burgers, and sandwiches from which to choose.
