Family FunIn The Palm Beaches

​“Are We There Yet” Indeed

From amazing animal encounters to rip-roaring water parks, you’ll find fun activities for kids around every corner in The Palm Beaches (and plenty for parents to love, too).

At the top of the list of kid-friendly activities: the beach! Our 47 miles of coastline invites families to snorkel vibrant reefs, go for a paddle, hop in a boat or build sandcastles on one of our beautiful beach parks. Watery fun awaits at beaches like Singer Island and Carlin Park in Jupiter, both famed for their clear, gentle waters.

You could easily spend an entire day at Sugar Sand Park in Boca Raton, which boasts a Children’s Science Explorium, playgrounds and nature trails, a carousel and a 155-seat theater that hosts family-friendly productions. Rapids Water Park offers thrill rides and chill rides the whole family will love. Expect big fun at the area’s mini-golf parks, from Jupiter to Boca Raton.

Sea turtles are some of our most beloved residents in The Palm Beaches, and kids can learn all about them at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach and Gumbo Limbo Nature Center in Boca Raton. If you time your visit right, you may even be able to see nesting sea turtles in the wild on a guided nature walk.

For more animal encounters, don’t miss Lion Country Safari, where you can cruise by big cats, rhinos, ostriches and more from the comfort of your car. Manatee Lagoon lets kids discover Florida’s beloved “sea cows,” while the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society is home to nearly 200 animal species, from playful otters to cuddly koalas.
