Do & See

Bonnet House

This sprawling 1921 estate gives an amazing flashback to the Florida of years gone by. This waterfront home, once inhabited by world-renowned artist Frederic Clay Bartlett and his wife, Evelyn, is accessible now by a guided tour. The formal tropical gardens and unique design are worth the few hours of lazy afternoon exploration.
International Swimming Hall of Fame

This aquatic center hosts international competitions. It has a pool that is open to the public and photos and medals from historically important swimming events worldwide. You can also catch a vintage swimming movie theater. A must see for all swimming, synchronized swimming, diving and water polo buffs.
Do & See

Museum of Art

This modern art museum has many permanent collections including works by American artist William Glackens, the artists of the northern European CoBrA movement and contemporary works from more than 90 Cuban artists in exile around the world. Make time for the Picasso ceramics and the Indigo Room.
Billie Swamp Safari

Billie Swamp Safari

Daily tours on swamp buggies take visitors through wetlands, hardwood hammocks and wildlife areas all on the Seminole Indians’ 2,200-acre Big Cypress Reservation. The kids will love the alligator farm and, if feeling very adventurous, you can stay the night in a native Tiki hut.
Do & See

Stranahan House

Built in 1901 by Frank Stranahan, this is Ft. Lauderdale’s oldest standing structure and a perfect example of “Florida Frontier” architecture. In its many incarnations, this building has been a post office, general store, town hall and, today, is a small museum that teaches about South Florida Pioneer life.
Museum of Discovery and Science

Museum of Discovery and Science

This fun and interactive museum will please adults and children alike. Enjoy the 52-foot-tall Great Gravity Clock, the largest kinetic energy sculpture in the state. In Florida Ecoscapes, there is a living coral reef, bats, alligators and more. Kids under seven will stay busy in the Discovery Center.
