Fun Family-Friendly Activities in Florida
Check Out the Local Theater Scene
A night at the theatre will be a stimulating and educational experience for both you and your children. It’ll create memories that will last a lifetime. Take your family to see murder mystery shows in South Florida. It’ll put your kids’ brains to work trying to solve the mystery. Look for local regional or community theater productions of children’s or Disney shows. Some theatres offer the opportunity for children to meet the cast after the performance. Your family can see “Beauty and the Beast” and meet Belle or greet Alex the Lion from “Madagascar.”
Have a Blast At an Amusement Park
There are so many amusement parks to explore in Florida. Theme parks are fun for kids of all ages and types. If you enjoy fast rides, you can enjoy rollercoasters and thrill rides. If you aren’t much of a thrill-seeker, there are still plenty of rides to go on like carousels, log flumes, and train rides. Say hello to Mickey and Minnie Mouse at Walt Disney World. Dive under the sea with all the fish, dolphins and penguins at Sea World. Ride some fun rides in Busch Gardens. Visit Harry Potter in Universal Studios.
Spend the Day on the Beach
There is nothing more relaxing than a day on the beach. It is an affordable way to spend the day for families of all sizes. If you want a relaxing experience, set up some beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas and spend the day lying out in the sun. Little ones can have fun in the sun making sandcastles with beach toys. If you want to have a more exciting time, bring a boogie board and hit the waves. For larger families, throw a beach volleyball tournament or a picnic. Be sure to pack your cooler with plenty of food and drinks. Most importantly, don’t forget to bring sunscreen.
These activities will keep your kids entertained all year round. They will want to behave during the week so that they can have fun going on all of these adventures during the weekend.
