Top Attractions in Boca Raton

  • Cox Science Center and Aquarium in West Palm Beach

    At the Cox Science Center and Aquarium, there is always something happening! And Summer is even more exciting and full of plenty of fun! From Science Camps to Nights at the Museum, there is an endless array of things to do! Annual memberships are also available.

    As for outdoor offerings, the quarter-mile Fisher Family Science Trail has something for everyone. The Science Trail connects 15 exhibits including a Physics Forest, FPL SolarScape, Cox Amphitheater, a shark tooth dig pit, gem-panning station, splash pad, dinosaur walk, and more!

    The Palm Beach Zoo not only features animal experiences, educational programs and nights out, but they are also exhibiting some amazing seasonal events year-round! Annual memberships are also available.

  • Lion Country Safari in Royal Palm Beach

    Between the drive-thru safari and awesome entertainment park (hello giraffe encounter!), Lion Country Safari is a great way to get out of the house and have some WILD fun!

  • Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach

    I highly recommend making the trek up to Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, especially if your kids are having sea turtle withdrawals. Loggerhead focuses on sea turtle research, rehabilitation and education with some solid ocean conservation thrown in for good measure.

    Upgrade your experience by booking a private tour to learn about the center and its inhabitants. Tour highlights include the on-site hospital, research laboratory, educational exhibits and aquariums. You’ll love seeing those baby turtles!

Petting zoo, ice cream parlor, pizza and more. This is a great way to spend an afternoon.

Since opening in 1977, Morikami has been a center for Japanese arts and culture in South Florida.
