School is out for the week, which means it is time to relax and have fun with family and friends. Conditions are ripe for adventure: the palm trees are glorious, beaches are more beautiful than ever and weather conditions are borderline perfect. Florida has it all when it comes to a desired spring break destination. With so many options, it is hard to pick just one South Florida activity to do.
Rapids Water Park is the first of many popular South Florida attractions. With 35 water slides, a wave pool, a relaxing lazy river and a variety of rides, Rapids Water Park has something for everyone. It is the largest water park in the region with many unique varieties of attractions to choose from for a full day of fun for the entire family.
On a local level, the Boca Raton Museum of Art provides a calmer, yet just as enjoyable experience. A day at the museum often translates to a day spent with loved ones for many attendees, with an environment that provides a shared learning experience surrounded by fine art and history. The Boca Raton Museum of Art provides a series of cultural, artistic and intellectual experiences through a variety of exhibits.
Gumbo Limbo Nature Center in Boca Raton is another place to consider that offers a unique experience. Here, visitors get to connect with marine life through a fun and educational experience. The center not only provides refuge to a variety of plants and animals,
it also represents a commitment to protect the valuable natural resources of the world.
Similarly to Gumbo Limbo, Lion Country Safari includes animal displays and encounters, animal feeding experiences, rides, water spray grounds and more. As Florida’s only drive-through safari and walk-through amusement park, Lion Country Safari allows visitors to spend a day surrounded by over 900 animals.
The Morikami Japanese Garden, both a museum and a garden, exhibits Japanese art and artifacts throughout the year. Featuring different aspects of Japan’s rich and diverse culture, the gardens were designed to be a living exhibit complementing the museum.
Pinots Palette is a must for those looking to relax, unwind and let loose over break. From date nights to birthdays, Pinots Palette provides everything visitors need for a delightfully fun experience. Customers can paint a beautiful art piece while enjoying a delicious drink. Pinots Palette partners with non-profit organizations and local charities to support worthy causes.
For a more adventurous spring break, Boca Raton Fly Board lets visitors strap on a jet board, which is made of pair of jet packs that supply propulsion to drive the board through the water. It may sound hard, but flying a jet board is actually a lot easier than it seems. Instructors are known to have newcomers flying high and diving deep fairly quickly.
With so many exciting attractions so close, why go anywhere else for break this year? Whatever type of spring break experience Lynn students are hoping to find this year, South Florida is the place to be.
