I was invited to discover The Palm Beaches as part of a campaign with Traveling Mom. All opinions shared are 100% my own.
The Palm Beaches is a South Florida not so secret destination gem that offers tons of different activities for the entire family. An easy hour an a half drive from Miami will get you to lots of options to make a vacation or staycation a family must do tradition year after year. For water babies, the options are plentiful, yay! So, if you are looking for water soaked fun, you have to do our list of Four Ways to Get Wet in The Palm Beaches. Not only will you get cool under the South Florida heat, you will have tons of fun in beautiful and fun splish-splash for everyone in the family.
Four Ways to Get Wet in the Palm Beaches
Want to wade, splash, plunge, play, get drenched, float or sunbathe? You can do it all in the Palm Beaches. Water fun is never far, and available in many different styles to match your family’s mood. Everything from thrills to luxe water-related activities are sure to keep the family happy and entertained. So what can you do beyond boating for water fun at this luxury destination? Consider these Four Ways to Get Wet in The Palm Beaches:
Lion Country Safari:
The unique animal encounter theme park in Loxahatchee, Fl. would not automatically associate with water other than keeping animals and tourists hydrated, right? Well, surprise! Lion Country Safari offers an interactive water spray area that is perfect for little ones to cool off after all the animal adventures and encounters. The “Safari Splash” is open daily starting at 10 am and it is part of your admission ticket. Changing areas and restrooms are available just in front of the Safari Splash, so it is pretty convenient.
Cool Mom Tip: do everything the park has to offer before splashing. Kids might not want to leave the water once the fun has begun! Also, paddle boats on Lake Shanlee are complimentary if you rather be on rather than in the water.
Rapids Water Park:
Slides, lazy rivers, wave pools, thrill water rides and even a brain drain are all available at Rapids Water Park. The park is located in Riviera Beach.
Open from March to October, but only weekends in September and October. This park caters to every water loving age group. There is a splash area and tame slides for the wee ones. Height restrictions are in place for every other slide and ride, so go on and play on!
Cool Mom Tip: South Floridians usually seek outdoor activities early morning or late afternoon so getting a cabana or space to leave your things might be difficult. Lockers are available for $40.
Of course there is no shortage of pools in The Palm Beaches. My favorite pools are the ones at the luxurious Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa. The award winning spa has its own unique pool that invites to total relaxation before or after any of the many services offered. Isn’t this simply amazing?
Besides the spa, you can also achieve tranquility at the adult pool of the resort which has a beautiful floor design and gorgeous outdoor shower, not to mention the phenomenal view out to the ocean.
Alternatively, shake things up at the active resort pool where flamingoes and dolphins have been spotted entertaining guest!
Miles of seemingly endless beaches await you at The Palm Beaches. I love the feeling of having your own private beach up here. Down South you know our beaches are crowded year round but not at The Palm Beaches where even the waves are better too. I spotted a few surfer and body boarders giving it a go in The Palm Beaches.
