Just last week, my husband asked me what I wanted to do this summer. Normally, we schedule one big trip. For most years, it was, well, coming to Florida to visit his parents (one of the many reasons we made this move). With now three children, those cross-country flights were getting costly.

Being a stay at home mother has its advantages, excess money is not one of them. Instead of taking one big trip, I would love to hit as many places this summer as I can. Since the summer can pass by really fast, I’m going to see how many I can blow through.

This will be my “go to” list of things to do with family in Palm Beach County. I would love to post updates on where we end up going! I don’t want this summer to go by too fast and miss a lot of fun.

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 – spiritedlife @ gmail.com.
