Manatee Lagoon is a Year-Round Destination for Your Family

“Avery, did you know that sailors used to think that manatees were mermaids?” This was the question I asked my daughter as we stood outside Manatee Lagoon on a cool Sunday in South Florida. We were snuggled up watching scores of manatees gather in the warm water outside FPL Next Generation Clean Energy Center in Riviera Beach. Avery was surprised…and promptly confirmed with me that mermaids were indeed, not real (unlike Santa). 😉 It turns out she learned a lot from our visit and honestly, so did I! (Plus she suckered me into buying her a mermaid doll in the gift shop.) Let me tell you how you and your family can make the most of your visit to Manatee Lagoon Palm Beach!

Axe Throwing Near Boca Raton at Game of Axes

Overhand or tomahawk? Stark or Targaryen? Beer or wine? These are the terms that are commonplace at a sweet new venue dedicated to the art of axe throwing in Boca Raton. If you’re looking for a really fun group or family bonding activity to do this season, then this blog post is for you!

Since Modern Boca Dad and I are obsessed with Game of Thrones (like the rest of the world), I stumbled across Game of Axes in Boynton Beach, and now Boca Raton, on Instagram. I sent them a direct message with some questions and the owner got back to me personally about this fascinating sport that I knew very little about. He also invited me (and a group of 11 of my closest friends) for a friendly, Friday night axe-throwing competition complete with polite beverages and plenty of GOT-style photo opps. Spoiler alert: we had a BLAST! Continue reading Axe Throwing Near Boca Raton at Game of Axes
