Family fun is never far away in Southwest Florida. While fun can always be had on the beach, amusement parks and other kid-friendly destinations are always a big hit while on vacation.
This waterpark is a great way to beat the heat and get some quality time together at the same time. Dozens of water slides, a children’s play pool, ecological boardwalk, lazy river and sand volleyball court all make for a splashing time.
There are go-karts galore at Zoomer’s Amusement Park, plus mini-golf, exhilarating rides, bumper boats and an arcade. It’s the perfect place for a kid’s (or kids at heart) birthday party or family gathering when the weather is nice.
When the weather isn’t so nice, the Imaginarium Science Center is the perfect option for a rainy day. Fun as well as educational, this museum has plenty of kid-friendly exhibits that aim to inspire the next generation of scientists. Learn about everything from dinosaurs to physics to biology.
For the train-obsessed youngster, head to the Railroad Museum of South Florida. Here, you’ll find historic train cars and hundreds of artifacts from trains through the ages. Plus, a 1/8th-scale railroad can take you through woods, lakes, a small village and other scenic locations.
If you’re looking for swashbuckling adventure, head aboard the good ship Pieces of Eight with Salty Sam’s Pirate Cruise. A 90-minute adventure on a replica Spanish galleon, you’ll take part in pirate activities like games, a mutiny and firing the cannons.
