Summer always seems to go so fast, slipping away before you know it. Make plans this year to savor the season, with these classic summertime experiences. Spend some quality time with the friends and family that you love, and make it a summer that you’ll always remember.
Hit the beach. No Florida summer is complete without at least one trip to the beach. In Florida, you have some of the world’s most beautiful strips of sand to choose from. Pack up your beach bag with all your essentials, and relish a long, sunny day by the ocean.
Plan a breezy picnic. You’ll find an appealing variety of green spaces, public parks and picnic grounds in Miami, Broward or Palm Beach. Pack a blanket, a Frisbee and a casual lunch – then grab your friends and relax in your favorite park space. Try John D. MacArthur Park, Ocean Ridge Hammock Park, or Atlantic Dunes Park.
Go for a bike ride. Southeast Florida is home to miles of trails, many of which are paved. Cruise on two wheels, go for a jog in the morning, or simply stroll along and enjoy the tropical atmosphere. Lake Trail in Palm Beach is a paved, waterside trail that offers plenty to look at during the trip.
Set sail on the ocean. The cool waters of the Atlantic Ocean beckon during the summertime. Charter a boat and go sport fishing, sign up for a sailing lesson, or book a fancy dinner cruise with a narrated tour of the area. No matter how you choose to experience the ocean, you’ll return to land more relaxed.
Take a swing. South Florida’s legendary golf courses are gorgeous, grassy expanses where some of the best players in the game have competed. Join them and sign up for a tee time at courses like The Trump National Doral, The Breakers or Palm Beach Par 3 Golf Course.
Pamper yourself with a spa day. When it gets hot outside, head indoors to one of the region’s spectacular luxury spas. Whether you plan a girl’s trip with the gang, or treat yourself to some quality “me” time, you’ll find an enticing menu of treatments at spas like The Standard Spa Miami Beach, The Viceroy, Mar-a-Lago, Style Bar, and The Spa at Breakers.
Look for turtles in the moonlight. From March through October, over 100,000 endangered sea turtles return to the area’s beaches to dig their nests and lay their eggs. Sign up for a tour with a local conservation group and witness the spectacle for yourself.
Tour the Everglades. Hop on board a quick-flying airboat and take a nature tour of the renowned Florida Everglades. Watch for wildlife and birds as you learn about this unique ecological region.
Rent a jet ski. It’s impossible not to smile when you’re zooming over the waves on a personal watercraft. Feel the freedom of the ocean as you power around the coastline, riding the waves like there’s no tomorrow.
