Summer Family Fun List in Southeast Florida

Tomorrow is the last day of school for my son, then we get to enjoy a few days of sleeping in, no homework and then finally, figuring out what to do to keep the kids occupied.

I posted this Summer Family Fun List last year, but I thought it’d be a great idea to give you a refresher if you aren’t sure what to do this year.

This list is organized in order by city, then alphabetical. If I missed any place, feel free to leave a comment or send me an email – justme @

  1. How awesome. I really need to find stuff to do in our area. Our schools last day is June 29th and i cannot WAIT! I miss having my kiddos home!

  2. Wow, that is a brilliant list! I am going to book mark this as we never know when we will head down to Florida again, and hopefully it is soon, we love your state!

  3. What a great list of things to do in Florida! I Think you nailed them all, love how you wrote it up, very organized and easy to find what I am looking for!

  4. What a great list and a great thing to use as a bucket list for summer, crossing things off as you do them.

  5. Wow, you are very organized – I really like your writing format.
    I know my husband would love this as well; he is way more into organizational writing than me.
    Although, I still can appreciate it and sure it will help out many a mother.

    This is a great list of things to do this summer. My kids are older now and spend the summers working. I am looking to plan a little getaway for everyone.

  7. What a great head start on getting ready for summer and all it’s activities. I love that through technology, we can all work together to make the most of the amazing stuff available!

  8. That’s a lot of places and things to do for the kids! I’m sure it’s going to be a summer full of fun and excitement. It’s so nice of you to put together such an awesome list.

  9. I’d love to go to every single one of these places. Since that won’t be possible if we go to FL on our vacation, I’m going to pick out several and I’m sure we’ll have a great time.

  10. Someday I’ll be taking my family to Florida, so I’m glad to see this list. We were planning on going this Winter to Florida, but I think our plans have changed for that since we found a house. We’re thinking maybe in a few more years we’ll be able to go.

  14. What a wonderful activities you have in Florida. I wish I can go to FL too, sounds like a wonderful place.

  15. There are so much to see in FL, I think a month will not be enough to explore the beautiful places of FL.
