While this summer has been quite different from years past, you and your family can still get out and enjoy yourselves in a safe environment. Right here in Fort Lauderdale, we have a variety of museums, historical homes, parks and beaches that are open to the public and offer safe environments for social distancing.

The Historic Stranahan House & Museum is a perfect weekend activity for families! The historic home is open Friday through Sunday and offers guided tours at 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm. Located on the New River, the home was built in 1901 by the predominant businessman, Frank Stranahan. Throughout the history of the estate, the home was used for multiple public projects, as Mr. Stranahan and his wife, Ivy, took on leadership roles in the community. This estate has been open to the public for viewing as a historic house museum since 1981 and welcomes more than 10,000 visitors annually.

Birch State Park is another great place to take the family in Fort Lauderdale. Birch State Park is a vibrant center for the community of Fort Lauderdale, and residents often enjoy activities including bicycling, roller skating, snorkeling, paddle boarding and so much more. Visitors can access the beach via the pedestrian tunnel under A1A, and there are also picnic areas that overlook the channel. The park is open daily from 8am to 6pm, and they charge a $6 entry fee per vehicle.

If you are in Fort Lauderdale, you should be sure to set some time aside to visit some of our beautiful beaches. With our clear, turquoise water and white sand beaches, Fort Lauderdale’s beaches are popular destinations for visitors and residents alike. Whether you enjoy surfing the waves, searching for seashells, or relaxing with a good book, Fort Lauderdale beaches offer something fun for the whole family.

Of course Bonnet House Museum & Gardens is also open to the public for self-guided tours of both our main house and expansive gardens on Tuesdays through Sundays. In fact, now through November 25th, we are offering our Family Special, which includes free admission for guests 17 and under!
