Rainy Day Bro-ventures in The Palm Beaches

June 29, 2018

You and your buds don’t have to slow down when the rain starts up

It’s time to live the dream! You’ve talked about this trip for weeks, if not months: just you and your buddies, heading to The Palm Beaches and living the “salt life.” It’s all here: the beach, the adventures, and tropical nights. But there’s something you and your posse should keep in mind. You’re in the tropics, and the tropics (during summer time) have a tendency for rain.

Time to dodge the raindrops.
No worries, the good thing is rain never lasts long in The Palm Beaches. That said, having a Plan B will cut your downtime and have you exploring even more than you expected. Here’s a list of fun spots that will keep you dry, while still having fun every minute of your vacation.

Escape the rain with an escape room visit!
Put down the umbrella and get ready to solve mental puzzles and strategize to regain your freedom. The growing popularity of escape rooms is well-deserved, with players of all ages working together to find a way out of a “locked” room before time runs out. There are several themes and locations to pick from in The Palm Beaches:
The Escape of South Florida - 10800 N. Military Trail, Palm Beach Gardens, FL
Legends of Xscape - 324 Datura Street, West Palm Beach, FL
Time Travel Escapes – Escape Rooms Jupiter - 401 Maplewood Drive, Jupiter, FL
West Palm Beach Escape Rooms - 209 S. Olive Avenue, West Palm Beach, FL

The Silverball Museum - 19 NE 3rd Avenue, Delray Beach, FL
Going here feels like arcade heaven. Don’t let the word “museum” fool you. This is the type of museum where you're not only encouraged to touch, you’re encouraged to play! Featuring more than 150 video games and pinball machines dating as far back as the 1930s, this museum brings a bit of nostalgia to visitors, evoking childhood memories for adults while creating new memories for newer generations. The 9,000-square-foot museum offers classic video games such as Ms. Pac-Man, two floors of pinball machines, arcade games and even the original skeeball alleys from New York’s Coney Island – Eldorado Arcade. The best part about it is that all the games are set for free plays, which means unlimited plays are included in your admission. Beer, wine and Coney Island-style food are also available for purchase.

Damn Good Beer Bus Brewery ToursPick up at Accomplice Brewery, 1023 N. Florida Mango Road, West Palm Beach, FL
Okay, it works like this: you show up, get on an air-conditioned bus, you’re driven to three of the area’s 19 local craft beer breweries and you get to sample all sorts of premium craft beer. Nothing wrong with that. Talk about beer, tour beer, and drink beer. Typically, expect several 4-ounce pours totaling 16 to 20 ounces at each stop. And it isn’t just any beer, it’s the brew master’s latest creation and a sampling of factory-fresh batches. You’re almost hoping it will rain now, right? Visit the website for reservations, and you must be over 21 to ride.

Surfing Florida Museum - 738 Park Avenue, Lake Park, FL
It’s not all about California, dude! Florida has more coastline than California (47 miles in The Palm Beaches alone) and it also has a rich surfing history dating back 100 years. This museum gives you a glimpse of the boards, the beaches and the surfers that put Florida on the surfing map. Expect a close-up look at rare surfboards, thousands of photos and hundreds of artifacts. Chances are good you’ll meet some of the local pioneers of the sport during the visit.

iPic Theater - 301 Plaza Real, Boca Raton, FL
This is the theater you’d build if you could build a theater. Raising the art of moviegoing to a new level, iPic Theater in Boca Raton’s Mizner Park offers large leather recliners to watch all the latest releases. The concession stand features a chef-driven menu of great food, perfect for in-movie dining. A wide selection of adult beverages are also available, making this a great way to dodge the raindrops for a few hours.
So, when the sun takes a break during your break, have no worries, there’s still a lot to do. If your game goes into rain delay, you might be glad it did!
