Things to Do Nearby

Enjoy all the open landscape with a picnic at Loxahatchee Groves Park. With its bounty of flora, meandering horse trails, playing field, grills and pavilion areas, it’s a perfect day spent in south Florida outside.
Spend the day roaming Lion Country Safari with hundreds of furry and featured residents. This popular Loxahatchee destination is a drive-through wild-animal adventure park. More than 90 animal species — including lions, giraffe, zebras, chimpanzees and rhinos — all live right here in The Palm Beaches’ backyard. Encounter large herds of animals roaming free on the preserve (you’ll see them from the comfort of your vehicles). After finishing the 4-mile, by-car safari, explore the 55-acre adventure park for its rides, animal shows, giraffe and bird encounters, a water sprayground and waterslides, dozens of animal exhibits, dining, shopping and more. Fun fact: The best time to see the animals is when it’s raining or early in the day (they like the cooler weather). Find more Lion Country Safari facts >>


Loxahatchee Groves takes its name from the Loxahatchee River, a National Wild and Scenic River, on Florida’s southeast coast. This expansive river ecosystem features varied habitats and supports endangered species like Florida’s beloved manatees and regal wood storks. The river spans 260 square miles and is a hallmark feature of Jonathan Dickinson State Park in Hobe Sound, a protected landscape that’s teeming with wildlife about 30 miles away.
