The weather is cooling down in sunny, south Florida just in time for some holiday cheer. Still much different from the rest of the nation we are still enjoying warm sun with a nice mild temperature, which to Floridians is considered “winter time.” With the holiday break around the corner for kids here are some fun activities to try while the ocean waters might be too chilly for a dip:
1. Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf
Another great idea for a kid’s night (or day) out on the town is mini golf and there isn’t a better one than Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf. Found in the heart of Jupiter, this fun mini golf course features big fountains, caves, dolphins and ships to work around while you’re golfing with the kids and family. They also serve food, beverages, wine and beer and even have an ice cream parlor! http://www.lighthousecovejupiter.com
2. Loggerhead Marinelife Center
The Loggerhead Marinelife Center is one of the area’s most prized possessions as it is home to many special marine species. Here, the educated staff and dedicated volunteers rehabilitate sea turtles and other precious species found in South Florida’s waters. Admission is always free and they have new events almost weekly. This is the perfect place to bring the kids or grandkids for a fun day up close and personal with sea turtles and creatures of the sea.
3. Lion Country Safari
If you haven’t taken a trip to Lion Country Safari, you will want to add it to your list! It is Florida’s only drive-through safari and walk through amusement park. Spend the day with your kids and 900 animals ranging from giraffes and rhinos to antelope and ostriches. Get up close and personal with these wild and beautiful animals at Lion Country Safari.
4. Jupiter Lighthouse
The iconic Jupiter Lighthouse is one of the most recognizable attractions in Jupiter. It has stood as a symbol of the town since 1860.
