Three Fun Local Activities for Kids

Posted by Gloria Singer on Wednesday, May 17th, 2017 at 10:35am.

Anyone with children is all too familiar with the phrase “I’m bored.” While parents may not ever be able to truly do away with those two dreaded words, moving to South Florida is a great start. This geographic area has an endless list of exciting activities to keep children entertained. The Palm Beach County real estate agents know the city and proximate neighborhoods better than anyone and can guide you toward the best attractions for children just as well as they can steer you toward a new home. 

While the beach and nearby parks are obvious draws for the whole family, there are plenty of other activities for kids in Palm Beach County that your children are sure to love. Here are some of our favorites:

1. Lions, Tigers, and Fun!

What kid doesn’t love a trip to the zoo? Luckily for Palm Beach County residents, there are two zoos where one can get up close and personal with wildlife. The Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society is home to more than 190 species of animals, and they feature educational programs for kids of all ages. Lion Country Safari, on the other hand, offers a unique drive-through experience, where visitors can take an excursion through the different habitats and see the animals from angles that are typically unavailable when standing behind a fence. The safari also boasts a small amusement park and plenty of opportunities for animal encounters!

2. Unleash Your Child’s Inner-Scientist

There’s no better place to show your child that science can be fun than the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium. Here, kids can explore a wide range of exhibits to learn about marine life, space, technology, and more at their own pace. The Science Center also offers a selection of educational programs for children of all ages.

3. Splash Around

We love the South Florida sunshine, but with it comes heat. For kids who need to cool down, water parks are both refreshing and entertaining. Palm Beach County has two water parks where kids can splash around. Thrill-seekers are sure to have a blast at Rapids Water Park, where water slides reign supreme. For those looking for a calming afternoon under the sun, the 897-foot lazy river at Calypso Bay Water Park is the place to be.
