Family Summer Special: Get Outdoors With The Family

By Bonnet House Blog No Comments

This summer, it has never been more important to get outside with the family and Fort Lauderdale is the perfect place to do just that! Located right in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale, Bonnet House Museum & Gardens provides guests with the opportunity to escape the realities of everyday life and enjoy our 35acre
tropical paradise.

Now through September 6th, Bonnet House is proud to host our Family Summer Special! This special deal includes $20 admission for adults, and is free for anyone 17 and under. Guests will not only be able to take a self guided tour of our main house, but they can also enjoy searching for monkeys in the trees surrounding our vast gardens and view the aquatic wildlife on our lakes and ponds.

In addition to the historic significance of the estate, the Bonnet House grounds encompass one of the last examples in South Florida of a native barrier island habitat. While you visit, your family can learn about the five distinct ecosystems that can be found on the property. This includes the Atlantic Ocean beach and primary dune, a fresh water slough, the secondary dune which includes the house site, mangrove wetlands, and a maritime forest. To complement the natural vegetation, the grounds also contain a Desert Garden composed of arid plantings, a hibiscus garden, and more.

Bonnet House Museum & Gardens is the perfect place to bring your family outdoors this summer. With free admission for the kids, you and the whole family can spend a beautiful day learning about the historical and ecological significance of South Florida without breaking the bank. We hope to see you and your family at Bonnet House this summer.

We are open Tuesday through Sunday from 9am to 4pm, and tickets can be purchased at the Welcome Center.
