Let the Cardinals’ Spring Training be your gateway to fun in the tropics

An afternoon at a St. Louis Cardinals Spring Training game in South Florida is an adrenaline-pumping experience. You’ll get a preview of how the Cards will play this season, and a chance to explore and enjoy The Palm Beaches – talk about a win-win! The weather is beautiful in Florida this time of year, and the sunshine and tropical breeze will surely make you want to seek out some fun in the sun. When the game ends and you’re leaving Jupiter’s Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium, don’t miss the many fun activities just a few minutes’ drive away.
Get a high-altitude view from atop the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum.

While the Gateway Arch stands a good bit taller, the 108-foot Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum was a soaring “gateway” for pioneers to The Palm Beaches. Built before the Civil War, the lighthouse was a stopping point for ships bringing travelers and cargo to South Florida. Now, nearly 160 years after its opening, the lighthouse is an icon for The Palm Beaches, overlooking the beautiful Loxahatchee River and Jupiter Inlet. Climb to the top and enjoy the view. Afterward, take a five-minute drive over to DuBois Park for a palm-lined view of the inlet, or enjoy an outdoor meal at the island-themed Guanabanas

Explore an unlikely cultural corner at Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens.

If a walk along the flowers and paths of Forest Park in St. Louis is a family favorite, take a drive south of the stadium to Delray Beach and see the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens. It was started by a colony of hopeful farmers that came from Japan in the late 1800s, and their memory is honored by this serene and beautiful grouping of Japanese-style gardens and structures. Exhibitions focus on Japanese art and culture, and the six distinct and breathtakingly beautiful gardens are inspired by great gardens of Japan.

Grab some locally made craft beers.

Think St. Louis breweries, and you’re thinking of some of the oldest and most popular beer brands in the country – not to mention the army of smaller craft brews available there. The Palm Beaches have a thriving craft beer scene as well, with nearly 20 local brewers preparing beer with Floridian flavor. Most have tasting rooms where you can enjoy their latest creations.

The sky's the limit at the South Florida Science Museum and Aquarium.

If you love an afternoon at the City Museum, then satisfy your curiosity at the South Florida Science Museum and Aquarium. View a show at the planetarium, discover the "Hidden World of the Everglades" and take a "Journey Through the Human Brain" – plus many more permanent and rotating exhibits. And be sure to check out the museum’s 10,000-gallon saltwater aquarium, teeming with stingrays, eels, seahorses and angelfish. It’s all just a half-hour drive from Jupiter.

Explore the arts in The Palm Beaches.

If you’re pining for a visit to St. Louis’ Grand Center Arts District, fear not – there’s world-class art and culture just minutes from Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium. The Palm Beaches are Florida’s Cultural Capital® with more than 200 cultural venues – from museums to art galleries to music venues and more. The newly renovated Norton Museum of Art was founded in 1941 and now has a collection of over 7,000 works of art from around the world, spanning every type of media.
And so much more!
There’s a wealth of fun gatherings and happenings going on during Spring Training in The Palm Beaches, like St. Patrick’s Day in Delray Beach. You can also see a collection of breathtaking yachts and watercraft of all kinds at the Palm Beach International Boat Show. For an eating experience like no other, visit the Wellington Bacon & Bourbon Festival, where mouthwatering creations are made with two of the tastiest ingredients on the planet.
