Many families choose to travel to the Palm Beach/West Palm Beach area because kids typically love the beach. It helps that the area is reasonably close to the Orlando theme parks as well. Don't let that tempt you to leave the area though, because as this list will attest to, there is plenty for the kids to do right here in Palm Beach County.
Have you ever met a kid who doesn't like mini-golf? How about ice cream? The relatively new Lighthouse Cove is a South Florida-themed mini-golf adventure park with 36 amazingly laid out holes. Enjoy watching the kids hack their way through waterways and obstacles while sipping on a shake or a cold beer from the clubhouse.
The area is also home to some great wildlife. While you can find plenty of the untamed variety while hiking through the various state parks and refuge areas, you can see more with the help from a guide at McCarthy's Wildlife Sanctuary. Tours need to be booked in advance online, as the center likes to keep groups small so that ultimate attention can be given to all individuals. The kids will be able to get up close and personal to some great animals, and ask all the questions their little heart's desire.
