Here are a few of the stops we made on our recent trip to Fort Lauderdale from St. Augustine:
Great park with really cool astroturf flooring. We had a wonderful time here and I never ever saw such clean restrooms at a park EVER!
They have a fun splash pad:
Saw Grass Mills Mall, Fort Lauderdale, Fl :
It was hard to get a good photo in this place because everything was pink!!!
I think the dreamhouse was a bit expensive, but I lucked out because Princess was only two and she was free. I got a military and weekday discount, so I paid $14.00, which was great...but if you have a couple kids and two adults, I can see how it would be expensive.
It is a 30 miute tour that leaves every half hour. I'm glad we went, but I don't think we would go again.
In Barbie's closet:
We saw a massive iguana outside of the Fishing Hall of Fame:
And Son liked hanging out inside a big shark's mouth:
Dolphin fountain at Jesen Beach:
Jensen Beach, Fl:
This was a great detour (even though it was 20 minutes off of the highway). It was well worth it. There is a splash park, a beach, several museums and the children's museum was excellent and inexpensive.
We got the military discount and paid $9.00 total for all three of us to get in:
The kids liked the grocery store best:
There is a vet clinic, a dental office, a fire station, a puppet area, a train set, a big pirate ship that shoots balls to the lower level and a toddler area:
Palm Bay, Fl:
Love, Love, Love it here. There are lots of trails to run/walk on and a ton of wildlife. There is also a cute little nature center with things for the kids to do and best of all, its FREE!!!
Princess liked using these blocks to create animal tracks:
